Boating in Dedham  image

For many years dating back to the nineteen hundreds, Dedham has been known as the place to hire a Rowing Boat. We have carried on that tradition and have 26 Clinker built Rowing Boats all for hire from 30 minutes to an hour or more for a leisurely row along the river Stour.

Flatford Mill, the Mill made famous by John Constable is just a mile and a half row along the river if you are feeling energetic.
For those of you that would prefer an Ice Cream, drink or snack our kiosk is the ideal option with outside seating available.
