We have instructors on hand to help you to develop your paddling skills on our taster sessions.

Pub paddling sessions are a paddling session to one of several pubs near to us on the River Stort. We use the Three Horseshoes public house in Spellbrook as our main pub paddle which is a short walk from the river but we often head to The Port Jackson in Bishops Stortford or the Harlow Mill pub  which is near to the River (shuttles back to base required by taxi bus to our base ) An alternative destination for a short paddle is a trip to the Shed Tea rooms/ cafe for amazing cakes and coffee in Sawbridgeworth for thos looking for a great snack / breakfast or lunch.
