What Can I Expect

Paddle the gentle waters of the River Ouse when you go kayaking in East Sussex! We are offering kayak experiences and river trips that are ideal for beginners and experienced paddlers alike. Convivial, peaceful and fun, this is a great way to get into kayaking.

The base for these experiences in East Sussex is Barcombe Mills, on the banks of the River Ouse near Lewes and not far from Brighton. This is a slow-flowing canal that winds its way through some beautiful countryside, including the very picturesque South Downs. It feels a million miles away from all the hustle, bustle, traffic and noise!

Opting for the kayaking experience gives you a two-hour session where you’ll paddle in the local area around the River Ouse and Barcombe Reservoir. This is a great option if you’ve never kayaked before and want to (literally) test the waters. All the gear you need is included and you’ve got British Canoe Union instructors who will be leading and teaching. You’ll learn the basic paddle and rescue techniques and play some water games too. You can even try the capsize drill, but only if you’re up for it.

The kayak river tours will see you setting off from Barcombe Mills, paddling upstream on the lovely River Ouse. It’s a tranquil oasis, as you gently paddle under disused railway bridges, past the waterside pub and by patchwork fields, spotting wildlife as you go. This is a much-loved tour route that takes you right to Isfield Weir, the very pretty restored lock, where you’ll turn back and head back to Barcombe.

Once again, there’s no need to have any kayaking experience to be able to go on the tour, but please be aware that it is around four hours, so you’ll need to be up for a lengthy, if leisurely, paddle out. Quite possibly the most idyllic setting for kayaking in the whole of East Sussex, we think you’ll love it here at Barcombe Mills.
