Why and How we do what we do

Canoe hire - Cotswolds, Gloucestershire and accessible from Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Swindon – South Cerney Outdoor

The crystal clear waters of the 47 acre lake at South Cerney are just the place for developing and improving your canoeing skills. Our open Canadian canoes can be operated singularly or in pairs or even in ‘threes’ if you want to add a ‘little one’ to the crew. In fact, we think that canoeing is a great way to build team and collaborative skills because if you’re not working as a team, the chances are you’ll end up nowhere (or around in circles!). However, we are also pretty confident that it won’t take long for you to hone those coordinated paddling skills and you’ll be leaving everyone else in your wake.

Available for just £18 for one hour and a further £10 for every additional hour, canoe hire at South Cerney makes for a very reasonably priced day out.

If it’s been a while or it’s your first time in a canoe, you’ll need an induction, just to make sure you are safe and comfortable with what you’re doing. It makes us feel happier too. Therefore, we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

As well as providing the canoe, we can also supply with you with all the extra gear you might need – paddles, wetsuits, waterproofs and buoyancy aids – to stay safe, dry and warm.
