Paddlesport

Canoeing and kayaking are sports that the Old Vicarage is passionate about. Whether you see yourself bouncing down a fast flowing river gorge, cruising on the tranquil flats, surfing off the coast or just simply giving it a go, then you've come to the right place.

We are a British Canoe Union approved centre and run a wide range of BCU/UKCC personal skill and coaching awards, as well as our own range of courses. We have a beautiful lake nestled in our nature reserve that we use for coaching skills & lessons as well as taster sessions. Close by is the river Severn where we run our introduction to moving water courses then also on our door step we have the river Teme where you can experience your first rapids. For advanced white water we travel the short distance to Wales where there is no shortage of water.

What's special about the kayaking here is our dedicated coaches, they are all white water enthusiasts who have a wealth of experience having paddled all over the world from the steep creeks of New Zealand, to the mighty drainages of North & South America, the classic runs in the French & Austrian Alps not to mention Nepal where we run kayak schools for beginners & paddling expeditions for the more experienced boaters. Take a look at our courses & training page or Live the Adventure Worldwide Travel for more details.

Check out our adult and family events for details of current river trips that you can join.
