Fabulous fun!! We hired 2 punts, one chauffered and one to do yourselves. Lovely helpful young lad chauffered us. Delightful way to spend some time and prices were reasonable,. Staff were all very helpful & chatty.

A rare hot day in March, decided to go punting with 2 friends. We took it in turns to punt, after being shown how to by a member of staff. Most enjoyable. Will order a picnic next time and have a bit longer.
