Nichol End is closed at the moment due to the coronavirus outbreak.

With a heavy hearts, we have closed the whole business from March 21st until further notice. 

Bertholders - we are checking your boats regularly, and are doing everything we can to keep them safe.  If you have any particular requests / queries or problems get in touch and we will check them out for you.  Customers who live close enough to walk in as part of their daily exercise are welcome to pop in and check their boats - as long as they are behaving sensibly and total numbers remain low.  We anticipate that we will be able to open fully to bertholders before we open to the general public.  

Members - we will make hire boats available to you as soon as possible, in the meantime stay safe!

General Public - sorry that we are closed and cant help with boat hire and your scone needs at the moment.  We are monitoring the situation constantly and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. 

It is most likely that we will be reopening in a limited fashion.  Decisions have yet to be made depending on the regulations and our risk assessments at the time.  We anticipate that hire will be limited in numbers and by appointment only - to avoid queuing and to ensure equipment and changing areas are cleaned after each use. We anticipate the cafe will open for take away with a very restricted menu.  

Emergencies - Our family continue to live on site, and will help out (if they can) in case of emergency.  If you need to contact us either call 017687 73082 or email

Take care everyone, we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
