Paddleboarding at The Swan

Paddle down to The Swan

Try something new and have a splashing time!

Yes, that’s right – Paddleboarding is back for 2024! We’ve again partnered with Paddleboard the Lakes to provide a super fun experience for you, your family and friends.

Whether it’s taking up a new skill or perfecting your paddle, we’d like you to join us at the paddle hut. Based right outside The Swan, it’s the perfect place to launch off into the River Leven.

Interested in getting your team out of the office and onto the water? We’ll also be offering team building packages – what and OARsome treat! More on that below.

We’ll be open from the 23rd of March 2024 – just in time for the Easter break, so we look forward to seeing you out there.
