At our very popular Cuckmere centre, you can hire single sit on top kayaks and stand up paddle boards at £15 per person per hour, or double kayaks for £25, including the use of safety equipment and wetsuits if required.

Advance bookings for hire of sit on top kayaks and stand up paddle boards should be made with full payment in advance. Any hire booked and not used is non refundable and non transferable.

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.

IF you would like to paddle the river, book a guided river trip to Alfriston, or to the beach.
