As everyone has been enjoying the water activities, we are adding a River Kayak Day on Wednesday 16th August.  This will be a chance to paddle from Appledore up to Bideford and beyond, have lunch and then paddle back so far either stopping for a lift or returning to Appledore... depending how everyone is feeling!

For the full day it will be £40 per person or £72 if you book two people.  

Timings: 9.15 - 4.45

Don't forget to bring a packed lunch or order one from us for £6

Give Flavia a call to reserve your place.

Activities will be organised based on tides and time of year.  The weather has an impact on some of activities, and when this occurs we will provide a substitute from the list and add the missed session where possible later in the year.

How much does it cost?

Sessions cost £25 per person, or save by booking 6 consecutive sessions for £130 per person.

How to book:

Please call us on 01237 475992 to book your place or call into reception at Skern Lodge.
