Paddle Board Hire - 2hr Hire


Take your Welsh Water Adventure on to the water by hiring one of our paddle boards. Explore the Llys Y Fran Lake and see its spectacular scenery and wildlife from a different perspective. After a safety briefing and competency test you can set off on your journey.

Pricing is based on £20 per craft, not per adult. The number of persons that can take part per craft is dependent on the craft capacity. For example, a one person paddle board means only one person can take part in the activity. Your hire will include one wetsuit and buoyancy aid. Additional buoyancy aids and wetsuits can be hired from the Activity Centre.

We reserve the right to withdraw access to the water if the conditions are not suitable or unsafe.

Upon arrival to Llys y Fran you will need to sign in at our Activity Centre Reception. Please ensure all consent forms have been signed before your arrival.
