At Cuckmere, we are lucky to have access to a large section of the Cuckmere River cut off from the flow and tide known as the Meander. It is therefore a perfect place to paddle in a beautiful location at your own pace, but please note the signage onsite, as we do not permit hired craft to leave the meander, nor enter the southern end which is a designated bird reserve.
