Andy and his team can’t wait to meet you.
Welcome to TK Watersports Somerset, provided by authorised franchisee Wall Eden Adventure. Explore the Somerset countryside the best way – by kayak. From Wall Eden Farm you and your friends or family can navigate the River Brue as far as Glastonbury, kayaking through miles of peaceful countryside; you may see kingfishers, herons, otters and an abundance of other wildlife along the way.
Once you have booked all you need to do is turn up 15 minutes before your adventure. Once here we will get you kitted out with all the equipment you need for your day on the water and give you time to read the hire rules and conditions, which will need signing before we can begin the kayaking activity. We will then make our way to the river, which is a short 50-meter walk, and begin a brief health and safety talk to ensure you are safe at all times. You will then depart from Wall Eden Farm via our launch point on the river and head towards Glastonbury through the spectacular Somerset Levels. Once you’ve had enough just turn your kayak around and head back to TK Watersports Somerset at Wall Eden Farm.
Why not make a holiday of it with TK Watersports Somerset at Wall Eden Farm! We’ve a range of top quality luxury accommodation from log cabins to yurts. Combined with the activities we offer, it makes a great getaway next to the River Brue on the Somerset Levels. Plus you’ll have easy access to our full range of activities across Devon & Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset!
The river is a historical waterway and is steeped in history, allowing you to immerse yourself with the splendour of this ancient route as you paddle through miles of this beautiful untouched watercourse. The river has been used for well over a thousand years and has strong connections to the Romans and Anglo-Saxons, with ports at Langport, Glastonbury and Highbridge.
As you travel up river you will see evidence of the home guards’ (WWII) presence in and around the area, with numerous pillboxes lining the banks of the Brue; part of a last-ditch defensive line to prevent enemies from invading from the south-west.
Parts of the river are safeguarded by an ecological conservation project managed by Somerset Wildlife Trust, with the aim of protecting the natural habitat, including the large array of wildlife; which you will hopefully encounter as you navigate the River Brue in your sit-on-top kayak.
At TK Watersports Somerset, we also offer Canadian canoeing, archery, and air rifle shooting.
In terms of history, the river has been navigable for thousands of years and was a vital waterway for traders, which gives you a great sense of the rivers importance as your water sport adventure begins. It is well documented that the Romans utilised the River Brue to aid the movement of peat after its extraction across the Somerset Levels.
From your tandem canoe you will see the World War Two pillboxes which formed part of the British defensive line, with the aim of preventing German forces from invading. We are fortunate to have access to this wonderful river and we hope you visit to discover it yourself, whether in a canoe or sit on top kayak.
We are also in a great location for your canoeing, with easy access from Taunton, Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and Cheddar.
TK Watersports Somerset offers the chance to use high quality scoped air rifles at our indoor Somerset range. You will learn the skills required for air rifle target shooting through our knowledgeable instructors and be able to put them into practice.
Once you have arrived at Wall Eden Farm, you will be asked to read and signs our safety rules. Once signed your instructor will take you to the range where they will recap on the do’s and don’ts of the range, shooting technique and be there for any questions you may have.
Throughout your session, you will be using Air Arms S400 Air Rifles which are one of the best rifles on the market. If you are new to shooting or are unsure about using a firearm then fear not, our rifles are easy to operate, require very little physical strength to use and most importantly produce no recoil (unlike shotguns our rifles won’t send you home with a sore shoulder)!
Our qualified GB Archery instructors will take you through everything you need to know, including the safety aspects and best technique for becoming an expert archer.
Feel free to imagine yourself as Middle Earth’s Legolas or maybe even John Snow from Game of Thrones as we give you the skills to hit your target. Throughout the session, we will put together a few games, allowing those with a competitive streak to bask in the glory of victory… or perhaps wilter in defeat!
The session will begin with a health and safety brief from our instructor who will ensure everyone is in safe hands. Once completed the fun can begin; you will start with a warm-up where you will be taught the basic principles of archery or a recap if you have done archery before, followed by a host of games to test your skills.
We can run a range of sessions to suit your requirements; from beginners to intermediates, groups, one to one tuition, birthdays, hen and stag do’s.
Our friendly instructors will ensure you have a great time.
