in the bigger boats. Super stable the boats are untippable – great family fun for 2 to 5 people! Ideal if you have very young children.
Family row boats
Being located adjacent to the prestigious Jephson Gardens Park we use traditional Victorian style rowing skiffs.
They glide through the water with minimal effort and provide a relaxing vista on the surrounding gardens!
Maximum capacity 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 small children.
Canoes & kayaks
Hire 2 or 3 man Canadian canoes, or 1 & 2 man Kayaks. We have child-sized kayaks and paddles so kids can paddle solo from age 6 and up. Hourly, half day or full day rates available.
Kids Boating Lake
The boating lake is only 2 and half feet deep, so youngsters can try out a wide range of boats in an enclosed area supervised by us. You can relax, have a cup of tea while your children have fun!
