Treat your mother to a paddling trip on the absolutely stunning River Arun from Pulborough. The upper section of this river is surpurb, and the tea rooms with home made cake for afterwards... Who could ask for a better day out?
Treat your mother to a fantastic couple of hours on the water in one of the most scenic sections of river on the South Coast!
The River Arun at Pulborough is a slow flowing section of river, with minimal effect from the tides as its some 20 miles inland from the port of Littlehampton.
The upper reaches of this river are quite beautiful, with reeds, trees and a multitude of wildlife visible along the way. An abundance of dragonflies, kingfishers, and herons are normally seen along the way, as well as the occasional bird of prey circling overhead.
After our paddling trip, we highly recommend popping into the tea rooms by the slipway, they sell excellent home-made cake, and very tasty coffee (we struggle to keep our staff team out of here!).
You have the choice of craft to paddle.. Consider going in an open canoe and doing all the work for your mother, or give her the opportunity to have some freedom and paddle a single kayak.
