Discover Paddling Team Event

About Us

'We pride ourselves on giving you the very best paddling experience.' 


Grace discovered kayaking in 2012 at Bristol University. Suffering from a ruptured cruciate ligament, paddlesport became her new passion replacing her previous hobbies; skydiving and netball. Grace has since enjoyed paddling all over Europe and loves nothing more than giving everyone the best paddling experience.

Trip Advisor


What can we say wish Trip Advisor had a 10 star review as this deserves more.
We had an amazing family birthday treat no computers no mobiles etc.. just the beautiful country side and two amazing instructors we never done it before and was surprised how well especially the children took to it. I def need more lessons but really enjoyed watching and joining in with the family. Thank you so much love The Cockle family x
