The Sussex Ouse - Barcombe Mills to Isfield

Barcombe Mill River Trip - The Kayak Coach

This kayaking river trip takes us away from the busy world of cars and noise and takes us deep into the peaceful Sussex countryside. Starting our river trip at Barcombe Mills, we paddle upstream along the river Ouse. Along the way we will no doubt pass anglers fishing the river for carp, pike and trout. The river offers an abundance of wildlife to see along the way including kingfishers, moorhen, swan, greylag goose, and grey wagtails to name a few. After one mile we reach the Anchor Inn, a great pub on the river that is worth visiting on the return leg! Past the Anchor Inn we paddle for approximately a further two miles on our way to Isfield Weir. As the river snakes through the Sussex Downs towards our turn around point we pass under disused railway bridges and are joined by other rivers. Before too long we can hear the roar of the water cascading down Isfield Weir in the distance. After stretching our legs and exploring Isfield Weir we make our way back to Barcombe Mills with hopefully time for a pint of Harvey's in the Anchor Inn along the way!

As with all our kayak river trips this is a peaceful and picturesque trip with the emphasis on enjoying being out on the water instead having to learn lots of new skills and getting wet!
