On The Water

If you’re a real lover of the water, you won’t let the winter stop you. Come down to Woodmill Outdoor Activities Centre and take to the water on one of many different paddle crafts. Whether that be a canoe, kayak or even Katakanu, you can enjoy one of four waterways, all year round. Paddle around on our private, secluded lake which is nestled within our Woodmill forest or if you’re a more seasoned paddler, head out on The River Itchen and down to The White Swan pub for a beer or two.

Not feeling up to being on the water. That’s fair enough, why not head into the woods? Nestled in the Woodland, you will find a whole range of activities. This is where children can have their first taste of life off ground, with the Low Ropes course. Do you have a school trip planned? If so, students can practise their bushcraft skills or some outcome-focused Team Challenges. Feeling even more adventurous? Well take to the Archery tent to sharpen up on your target practice. Don’t worry if you get lost, the woodland is also where we teach orienteering. You’ll find your way out in no time.
