Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can demo our boats and paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!

    Laurence Welding

    Plastic Welding Workshop

    If you have a boat that has a small crack or you'd love to learn how to plastic weld just in case you ever need to repair a hole in your kayak then make sure you book your boat in with us on Thursday 7th so you don't miss out, just give us a call on 01454 261058 and let us know which boat you have and how bad the damage is and we will do our best to get you booked in and fixed up on the night.


    Outfitting Workshop

    We will be holding an outfitting workshop, which will teach you how to fit your boat to your body correctly, sometimes just a slight adjustment in your seat, backband or footplates which can make all the difference to your paddling ability and confidence. Having your kayak set up to fit you is so important, its like being 5ft 2” and driving a 6ft persons car when you haven’t had your boat outfitted, the little adjustments make all the difference in the world! Again, please call us and book in if you would like us to check over your boat.

    Mercian Rebels Logo

    Mercian Rebels

    The Mercian Rebels are a group of friends and colleagues who are raising money for Cancer Research. They are currently training for a massive challenge which they are starting in July 2018 where they will be Cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats (as if that wasn’t hard enough they are also climbing the 3 Peaks (Ben Nevis, Scotland, Scafell Pike, England and Snowdon in Wales), and paddling the 3 Lakes (Llyn Tegid, Wales, Lake Windermere, England and Loch Awe, Scotland). They are hoping to complete all this in 10 days, with a day either side to travel to the start and from the finish. They start this crazy challenge on the 30th June 2018 and hope to finish by the 11th July. They have all cycled plenty of miles and walked up many a mountain, however the kayaking will be somewhat challenging as this is their weakest of the three disciplines, never mind doing them all one after another. The team hope to raise £15,000 and help make an impact on the lives of many. If you can support them, offer paddling tips, have paddled any of these lakes before or just want to follow their journey then please follow them on Facebook by searching for Mercian Rebels, or if you wish to make a donation please click on this link:


    Finally, it wouldn’t be a Christmas event if we didn’t have mince pies, mulled wine and some fun and games to see us through the evening! If you have any questions please give us a call and we all look forward to seeing you on the night.
