My New Forest Story – First hand experiences of those who have enjoyed time with us.
This is about Duncan, he and his wife joined a small group kayaking on the Beaulieu River. He summed up; This was perhaps the highlight of our whole trip to the New Forest. What will your story be? We’d love to hear from you!
Name: Duncan C.
Who we are & why I chose New Forest Activities: We were a couple but became part of a group of five with three people we hadn’t met before our activity.
The activities I’ve done: Kayaking
Here’s my story: We had a fantastic time, it was our first time in kayaks but it won’t be our last. We were in a group of five of mixed ability, and it was such a lot of fun. Our instructor was calm, patient, humorous and confidence boosting and we were soon paddling our way out towards the Solent.
We saw loads of New Forest wildlife including birds of prey, families of swans and Common Turns fishing and feeding small fish to their youngsters. We soon forgot about being novice kayakers and relaxed into the whole experience.
The equipment was easy to use and they had all the sizes we needed. All of it was in tip top condition. I had plenty of chance to discuss other courses with our instructor and want to come back for more.
My wife, completely new to paddling of any sort, had a huge grin on her face afterwards, having loved it. This was perhaps the highlight of our whole trip to the New Forest.
How I’d sum up my experience: A way to challenge yourself and change your view of the New Forest that will make you want to come back for more.
Thanks Duncan – We loved having you with us and appreciate you telling the world your story! Kayaking on Beaulieu River – suitable for beginners!
