Hollow Ponds Rowing Boat Hire

Unfortunately, due to the last few very dry winters and dry summers, Hollow Ponds is closed for boat hire due to the extremely low water level :-(

What better way to explore Hollow Ponds than by hiring a boat and discovering the delights of the wildlife, surrounding shores and the encompassing ancient woodland of Epping Forest.

The Boathouse has rowing boats available for hire and the boating lake is open from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm.  Weather permitting the boats continue operating into late September at the weekends.

Boat Hire

Rowing boats can have a maximum of 5 people. A basic knowledge of rowing is helpful when using these boats, but it is by no means essential and first-timers are more than welcome.


Half-hour - £10

One hour - £15

(All Boat hire is subject to a £10 Deposit which is refundable upon return)

Tickets can be purchased at the boathouse Kiosk by the boating dock on Whipps Cross Road

For more information and to check for latest prices and opening times contact James @ Hollow Ponds Boats on 07973 128375 or email us: james@hollowponds.co.uk
