Route Description

Great 3-day paddle, starting at our base, The Boathouse at Rushden Lakes, paddling 26 miles in total, with overnight B&B stops at Islip (or Thrapston) on your first night, and Barnwell for your second night. You’ll have a choice of The Woolpack at Islip (just a few seconds walk from the river), or just across to the other side of the river into Thrapston, you could choose to stay at The Bridge Hotel. You’ll be well looked after at both, and after a hearty breakfast, you can set off for your second day paddling, continuing downstream to Barnwell where you’ll stay overnight at the excellent Lower Farm B&B. At the end of your third day, we’ll pick you up from Fotheringhay and take you back to your start point at Rushden Lakes.
