Canadian Canoeing at Holme Pierrepont

Saturday, November 15, 2014

After our exciting trip to Carsington Water in the summer, we recently took a trip to the UK National Watersports Centre - or to us Nottinghamions as Holme Pierrepont.

There's so many outdoor activities to do at this place, it's brilliant. From family walks in to white water rafting, there's also plenty of places to stop and enjoy a lovely picnic.


Parking at the Lake is free and we decided to hire a Canadian Canoe for an hour (£6 each) and paddle around in the brisk Autumn sunshine. 


At first, we started off a little rocky - swaying from side to side. But after 10 minutes and adjusting our body positions and weight, we mastered it quite nicely.
