Reach Outdoors is the history of three friends, Rachel Mayhew, Richard Hanbury and Ashley Hone, who can provide a 30-year of outdoor activities experience. Located in South Devon, one of the best places for these kinds of activities according to TripAdvisor, we will discover how nature, and in particular the English Riviera, can boost personal growth as human beings.
What is our mission? To push your health, to push your connection with the environment and to spend a great time at UNESCO geoparks that are perfect for adventurers who want to discover the true power of sports like kayaking, coasteering or paddleboarding. We offer private to group sessions where you will find one of the most breathtaking bays in the country. Among them, it's Tor Bay, a beautiful golden sand and green hills marine area here, in Devon.
Our activities can change locations, but they are mainly held in Paignton, an ancient Victorian seaside resort that was first populated by Celtics in 1086; Torquay, a town popularly known for the amusement bay where you can find a huge big wheel from where you can have a look to the whole zone; and Brixham, one of the best fishing places in the country.
To get to Paignton, where most of our activities take place and where our headquarters are, you must take the A379 from Paignton city centre.
Awards are a way of recognising one's work and passion and we're very proud to say that we have some of the most distinguished ones. For instance, we were awarded by TripAdvisor in 2018 thanks to our excellency. The county o Devon also gave us in 2019 the Devon Tourism Certificate as we promote our hometown and increase national and international interest because of the activity range that we offer.

One name: Reach Outdoors. One perfect location: South Devon. Three different towns: Paignton, Torquay and Brixham. This is what you have to remember to know where and with who you can enjoy the best coasteering experiences in the UK.
As an award-winning company for its excellence (for instance, we won TripAdvisor 2018 Award), we have 30 years of experience, but 30 years thanks to the work that, privately and professionally, our three founders hold. Because of Ashley Hone, Rachel Mayhew and Richard Hanbury's passion for nature, sport and, of course and above all, for coasteering, we have built a team that follow the Royal Yachting Association's best practices, rules and training in order to provide only the best sessions in the county.
But we have to mention one additional element that makes us different and special. That would be the land and the towns where we hold our sessions. You can choose one of the already-mentioned places that, apart from being the perfect stages for coasteering, they are great for eating fish dishes as they are considered the best fishing areas in the country, for enjoying the traditional Victorian architecture and for paying a visit to places that are untouched by men and one of the few places in the world that weren't altered by Glaciation (indeed, we're talking about the marvellous English Riviera Unesco Global Geopark!). Our coasteering sessions are great for people who want to come on their own or in a group and, without a doubt, will be a great opportunity to jump, swim and climb in a land of beauty and dreams!
The English Riviera can be yours thanks to our kayaking time in Paignton. From sessions for beginners to private or group offers, Reach Outdoors is the company that has turned the beautiful land that we have here, praised and recognised by UNESCO, into the stage of this stunning watersport activity.
We provide 30 years of experience. 30 years that we have reached thanks to Rachel Mayhew, Richard Hanbury and Ashley Hone's professional life. As we know how important sport is to develop ourselves from different dimensions, we love combining the most popular and breathtaking lands (we have the English Riviera Global Geopark, known for being a natural space that wasn't touched by Glaciation!).
Reaching Paignton is easy as you only need to drive along the A379 and you can leave your car at the Youngs Park Car Park, a few miles from our headquarters. From there, you can have a walk watching the incredible sea view.
What else do you need to know about our company to stay assured that we're the best? Well, our instructors are professionals who hold different certificates and titles like the important Royal Yachting Association (RYA), which guarantees that our coaches have the best training and follow the safety rules that we all need to enjoy kayaking.
In addition, we have been awarded by our county or by TripAdvisor thanks to our activities, our organisation, our team and the way we connect nature with personal benefits.
This is Reach Outdoors, a company where kayaking will be an unforgettable experience!

At Reach Outdoors, we believe in nature, people and sport. These three ingredients find their place in South Devon, at the Torbay coastline. With our 30 years of shared experience, the company that was founded by three friends - Richard Hanbury, Ashley Hone and Rachel Mayhew - has become one of the greatest outdoor activities groups in the UK.
Because of our love for sport, we couldn't avoid providing fantastic paddleboarding experiences and, above all, offering these sessions in the best place: Torbay or, as it's known, the English Riviera. If you are an Agatha Christie's fan, you have another reason to come paddleboarding with us. Many places mentioned in her novels are set here and she usually found inspiration in this incredible region to write!
As we know that many adventurers complain about the limited duration for these activities offered by other companies, ours last, at least, 2 hours! You can arrive at this part of England by train. Taking London as our departure city, you have to take the train at London Paddington until you get to Paignton. There are more than a hundred trains operating every week that can get you here! Otherwise, if you prefer driving, it's only a 3-hour journey and you can use that time to listen to an audiobook (don't forget that Christie was born at the English Riviera!).
We also pay attention to safety and rules as we are members of the Royal Yachting Association and we have some of the greatest honours as Devon's recognition that points our work as a way of boosting the touristic interest of our county.
Welcome to Reach Outdoors, a company that is eager to surprise you with the greatest paddleboarding experiences!
They say Devon has the best caves to explore as they haven't been altered by human beings. As we love adventure, we couldn't resist providing those experiences to adventures taking Pridhamsleigh Cavern as our stage.
Reach Outdoors thus becomes one of the greatest outdoor activities companies here, in Devon. Using the natural treasures that our land gives us, we try to make you feel connected to the environment and to improve your mental and physical health. Without a doubt, that is what caving is for.
Our location offers an almost 2 kilometres cave in length that you can reach taking the A38 road. This is the best venue for those who have never tried caving before thanks to its conditions. The paths and the channels are muddy, so they will help you crawl and it has the perfect size in order to make you feel comfortable the whole time.
As a company founded by three friends - Rachel Mayhew, Richard Hanbury and Ashley Hone -, we know how important people who we love are. That is why we have created private sessions but group sessions too, so all your friends, relatives or colleagues can come.
Pridhamsleigh Cavern has also the peculiarity that it will help you understand how the underworld works and how that system has an impact on water storage and the life above.
Welcome to Reach Outdoors, where the best experiences can be found!
