Buxton Canoe, Kayak & SUP Hire


Buxton to Oxnead Canoe, Kayak and Stand-up Paddleboard Hire - TheCanoeMan - Socially Distanced Canoe Hire

Buxton to Oxnead - River Bure Trail (return trip)

This trail launches from Buxton (just above Coltishall) and takes in an upper section of the River Bure, one of the quietest and most beautiful stretches of river in the county.
As the river meanders gently through Norfolk farmland you will pass by Buxton Church and Oxnead Hall before arriving at Oxnead Mill Pool. This stretch of the river is exceptional for wildlife spotting with regular sightings of Kingfishers, Herons and even Otters.
This return trip takes approximately 1½ hours each way. The turning point is the very beautiful Mill Pool at Oxnead where most people stop for a picnic and/or a swim. Regardless of your launch time we allow 4-5 hours for your overall trip.
Please Note - This trail involve a short, half mile, walk between the car park and the launch site.
Private Craft : The launch venue for this activity is not available for public launching. TheCanoeMan is required to pay for every boat that launches at this location and therefore the launching of private canoes/inflatables is subject to a £10 per boat fee and is limited to one private craft per boat hired from TheCanoeMan. Private launches must be booked in advance. We reserve the right to refuse access to the launch site for private craft.

Covid-19 Precautions

  2. All our boats, bouyancy aids, paddles and dry bags are disinfected/steam cleaned/quarantined inbetween each and every hire.
  3. Participants will be emailed a link to an instructional video which will demonstrate the correct fitting of bouyancy aids and give safety instructions. It will also demonstrate how to launch and paddle a canoe. This will allow participants to get afloat without having close contact with any of our staff.
  4. An emergency helpline allows participants to get assistance at any point in their canoe adventure.
  5. A hand disinfecting station is provided at the entrance to all launch points along with a supply of gloves.
