"The customer is NOT right; but the customer is the customer" This is what i was told by Ian Howells of Wyedean Canoe Centre and loosely translates as: "We at Wyedean do not give a toss what your experience was like or if you have any complaints, but we are going to take your money anyway" Having read the other...

Nine of us had a brilliant trip from Ross back to base on Saturday 15th November. The river was in flood so we were rafted together and had a swift trip. The organisation was excellent, the equipment good, and Olly, the guide, good fun to be with and competent but relaxed. We were a mixed experience group and I would... More

Finally convinced the family we should go canoeing. Everybody loved it despite the brief spell of drizzle. Staff were very friendly and equipment excellent. The river was tranquil and surroundings picturesque. Will be back in the future

Energetic and beautiful way to shed stress and pounds. I have spent much of my life around boats: sailing, rowing ,windsurfing, narrowboats and kayaks, but have never actually been in a canoe before and very much enjoyed the two days I spent on the river Wye with my family courtesy of the folks at Wyedean. We stayed under canvas at... More

An idyllic three day canoe hire experience stopping @ various locations en-route through the most wonderful landscape at a perfect pace. Once a swift and efficient safety briefing was executed and we were dropped at our starting point we begun to get to grips with the logistics of steering the canoe and as we improved the whole thing became more...

Stayed 2 nights in the campsite which was basic but perfectly adequate. Toilet blocks were clean and showers were hot. Scenery was stunning and the pub 100yds up the road serves excellent beer! Cooked breakfast at the local hotel was extremely good and provided a little bit of luxury. Canoed from Ross back down to Symonds Yat (15 miles/5 hours)... More

Looked for something a bit different and decided to do the 3 hour (9 mile) down stream paddle to Symonds Yat. You are kitted out and are given a safety briefing about the kayak and the route, then taken by mini bus up stream to ross on wye for departure. We chose to do the 1000-1300 trip, a wise choice...

After many requests from our children finally gave in and booked a canoe trip. I am so pleased we did. Had an amazing time. The whole experience was great. From the lovely Jo in the office who booked us all in , to the fantastic wyedean boys who made sure we all had a blast. Was slightly nervous I will... More
