Pay & Play Hire 2023

Fancy hiring a Sit On Kayak or Stand Up Paddle Board for a paddle on our beautiful reservoir?

You may also be looking for somewhere to use your own SUP or Sit On Kayak. We don't allow inflatables (excluding SUP's),Closed Cockpit Kayaks or Open Canoes due to our supervisory ratio and rescue procedures.

These sessions are great value at just £15 per person, which includes all safety equipment and basic tuition to get you on the water.

Our pay & play sessions are supervised rentals, no formal instruction is given. Participants will be limited to an area of the reservoir, and only suitable activities will be available, mainly Stand Up Paddle boarding and Sit on top Kayaking.

Just a few things to remember:


  • Changing rooms, and showers will be available. Please be conscientious of the limited space.
  • Wet suits will be available, but not required. (Please be aware, issuing of wet-suits, reduces time on the water)
  • Closed toe shoes must be worn to adhere to our policies e.g trainers (not flipfops) 
  • If you are bringing your own SUP / Sit On Kayak, pre-wash instructions need to be followed. 
  • Minimum age 8, children under 12 must be accompanied on the water by a parent / guardian
  • As we enter the Autumn months Oct / Nov, the weather may be unsuitable to go on the water. A land based activity will be offered as an alternative.
