Reviews for Sea kayaking short breaks in Devon


review 27 Aug 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

An excellent short holiday - incredible coastline, fantastic kayaking with knowledgeable, experienced and friendly hosts. Happy to fit the days out to all levels of ability and/or fitness. Great accommodation in a beautiful area.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Obviously a sea kayaking holiday is very weather/wind dependent. Be prepared to be flexible with routes and lengths of trips and just enjoy the experience. Better to take a small waterproof / resistant camera than use your phone (on the water). Very easy access from London and elsewhere in the train.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, the hosts Dave and Susie were excellent in this respect. Accommodation was all environmentally friendly and low impact, food was healthy and locally sourced (where possible), plenty of opportunity for recycling food and other waste was provided. But perhaps best of all, on all the beaches we visited as part of the day trips out kayaking, a short period of time was suggested for collecting plastic (and other waste) off of the beaches we landed on - some can only be accessed by sea so any effort to keep them clean by people who visit is essential.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, one of the best long weekends I have had in years. Great sea kayaking with friendly and very useful instruction (if wanted), amazing scenery and coastline, very new and appropriate equipment (kayaks and accessories), good food, lovely accommodation and charming and interesting host - would thoroughly recommend either a weekend, or as an alternative booking the barn accommodation for a week (but very popular).
