Covid secure outdoor activities in 2020

Water Sports Private Session

Water Sports Private Session

Water Sports Experience

Enjoy a paddle around the beautiful Talkin Tarn with your household or small group. Where better to be distanced from other people?! Your dedicated instructor will show you everything you need to know and help you develop your technique as you explore the lake during your 90 minute private session. 

Whether you choose Stand Up Paddle Boarding or a Kayaking experience, you will have a brilliant time trying something new and exciting. You will learn new skills and your instructor will introduce various games and challenges as you journey around the venue.

Use of all equipment, coaching and changing facilities following the activity are all included in the price. Simply follow the instructions below to book onto a session, then come along ready for your SUP or Kayak taster session with a towel, change of clothes and shoes that can get wet.

Your instructor will be with you throughout your session to offer guidance and safety support. They will keep a good distance at all times unless needed in the unlikely event of an emergency situation. To minimise the need for instructor intervention, the minimum age for SUP activity sessions is 12 years. Under 16s should be accompanied on the water by an adult. The minimum age for kayak sessions is 10 years, however we do have 2 tandem kayaks so an adult can accompany younger children.

This is a private session for your group, based on up to 4 people taking part in your chosen activity. Additional participants may be added to the booking by contacting us in advance by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., depending on government guidelines and equipment limitations. Additional participants will be charged at £15pp.

Please note that facilities at Talkin Tarn are limited. The changing rooms/toilets will be available for you to change, following your activity, but please arrive "ready to go". Cleaning will take place between activity groups.

We recommend comfortable clothing to suit the conditions, such as sports wear and training shoes. Wetsuits can become quite uncomfortable and whilst you may fall in, the aim is to stay on your board/boat. Please remember spare clothes, a towel and shoes that can get wet - and spare shoes! It is also a good idea to wear a lightweight, wind/waterproof layer.

Talkin Tarn provides the ideal venue to try paddle boarding and kayaking, with easy access to the water, warm showers and changing rooms. The venue is also easily reached from Carlisle, Hexham or Newcastle.

We will provide buoyancy aids, which must be worn, suitable for all sizes up to 110kg/130cm chest. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that will get wet. Remember a change of clothes and a hat/sun cream.
