Top 10 Cottages for a Kayaking Break

kayak holiday

If you are one of the growing number of kayak and canoe enthusiasts out there, you may well fancy taking your vessel on holiday with you to explore the waterways and coastlines near your holiday destination.

Open canoes are best for longer day trips as they hold more equipment, whereas kayaks are lighter, and speedier and therefore excellent for the choppy waters surrounding the UK.

There are a great selection of inflatable kayaks on the market now; a great option for packing into the boot of your car or trailer when heading off on your holiday.  Check out Inflatable Kayaks UK for a great choice.  Beginners and more experienced users can all enjoy taking part in this sport on holiday.  You will find hire shops all over the UK where this pass time is popular and if you want to practice before heading off to your bolt-hole, then your first port of call is the British Canoe Union who will help you find a centre near you. Go Kayaking is an excellent starting point for beginners who want to find out more about the sport and where to learn the ropes.

Booking a holiday cottage close to a canal, lake, river or the coast is just too tempting for a keen kayaker. The waterways of the UK are simply stunning locations for a holiday and with beautiful self-catering properties to hire in every location, there is bound to be one that floats your canoe?!
