Mark and his team from ‘Get outside the classroom’ are working on bringing onboard a brand new exciting equipment hire option here at Alderford & to ensure we can help you make the most of the coming heatwave the team will be here renting out Stand Up paddle Boards, Double Sit On Tops Kayaks, Canoes and even a Mega SUP big enough for groups later this week.

Costs for Hire is from £15 per person. You will need to purchase your swim wristband on arrival which is £5 for adults and £3 for children.

The hire will last for around an hour, we’ll need some time to brief you and ensure the Buoyancy Aid fits correctly and would ask you return at least 5 minutes before the end of hour to enable the equipment to be appropriately cleaned down for next user. You should expect to have 45-50 minutes on water. Plenty of time for an orientation , lap round the lake and sneak between the islands.

We are helping people get onto the water in waves of no more than 6 starting on the hour and running every 20 minutes.
