Add Bodiam Boating Station to your Itinerary

Rowing on the River Rother at Bodiam Boating Station, East Sussex

About

Affordable & fun days out for the whole family, 4 miles downstream from National Trust Bodiam Castle. Eat in our stunning garden and restaurant. Hire a boat and mess about on the river at your leisure. Stay at our small campsite; campfires encouraged. Dog friendly.

Boating
Paddle through the High Weald in one of our rowing boats, kayaks (single or tandem), Canadian canoes or stand-up paddleboards.

Camping
Pitch your tent, campervan or on our small rural site in this Area of Outstanding National Beauty. We have 25 pitches on a 1.5 acre plot, with wide open views. Campfires encouraged.

Eating
Visit our on-site Lime Wharf Café for a hearty breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or early supper, or just pop in for a great coffee, cold beer, or ice-cream. Sit in the garden and watch the KESR trains, as they chug away in the distance. In summer we host regular barbecues, paella nights and live music events.
