Canoes and bikes are available to hire daily throughout the school summer holidays (12pm - 4pm). Please pay at admissions when you arrive and keep the tickets you receive safe for presentation at the hire stations. Please carefully read through all of the important information here and on our website.

Canoe Safari: 12pm – 4.00pm (last canoe out at 4.00pm, to be returned by 4.30pm).
Paddle your way round reed-lined looping bends to get closer to amazing wetland wildlife than ever before with our incredible Canoe Safari (£5 per canoe). Look out for kingfishers, dragonflies, water voles, and much more! Who will you spot? No previous experience required; suitable for complete novices or the more experienced canoeist. Full instruction given. Buoyancy aids are provided and must be worn at all times. Full safety cover provided.

We use traditional Canadian Canoes which usually accommodate two adults or an adult and a child. Sorry but children under 5 years of age are not allowed in the canoes for safety reasons.
Children between the ages of 5 – 17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Adverse Weather - if the weather is windy the canoe safari may be closed for safety reasons.

Bikes: 12pm – 4.00pm (last bike must be returned by 4.30pm).
Jump on a bike, wind your way through the glorious reserve and keep your eyes peeled for all kinds of seasonal highlights (£2 per bike). The bike shed is located outside the Discovery Centre, near the Pond Zone.

All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Bikes cannot be booked in advance and are issued on a first come first served basis. Bikes can be taken for duration of approximately 45 minutes and must be returned by the agreed time. Safety helmets MUST be worn by all cyclists at ALL times. Helmets are provided or you can use your own.
