Paddle to the Pub

Enjoy a relaxing, one-way Paddle to the Pub on the wonderful Beaulieu River. Enjoy the views, spot wildlife, and learn about the river's rich history as you glide atop its glassy waters (before a refreshing glass of something else!) Our instructors will be on hand to guide you along the way, dropping you off at the Master Builder’s pub at Buckler’s Hard where you can enjoy some riverside refreshments. This really is the perfect way to enjoy a summer's day!

If you’re looking to have a meal at the pub, it’s advised that you pre-book a table at the Master Builder's. You’ll need to contact them directly to do this on 01590 616253.
