River Boating Sussex


For hundreds of years The Anchor Inn has enjoyed boating rights over one of the most beautiful parts of the River Ouse, stretching from the Anchor Inn to the attractive Fish Ladder Falls extending below Sutton Hall. The river scenery is quite unspoilt and is home to many wild birds including herons, kingfishers, swans, cormmorants and moorhens. The river is also home to a variety of species of fish, which can usually be seen basking on the rivers surface. The only building visible is the tip of the spire of St. Margaret's Church, Isfield. The round trip to the falls and back, made in comfortable two, four or six seater boats hand propelled by paddles, takes a leisurely two hours.
The boats or pedalos may be hired by the hour or day as desired.


The following prices are per hour:

£6.00 per adult
£3.00 per under 14

Life jackets are available for minors. 

Boating operates on a first come first served basis between 10am and 6pm, weather permitting. We are unable to take bookings for boats.
