I took the family (7 of us) on a half day canoe trip. Dropped of 9 miles up stream and given safety advice and tips and your let of on your adventure back down stream. Most of the group had never done anything like this before but all took to it with confidence. It was a great adventure and we... More

The abundance of wildlife, including Mink, comorant, buzzards and some sizeable fish swimming beneath the canoe made this a day to remember. Before canoeing I would advise walking up to symonds yat to see the peregrine falcon view point as when on the river you pass directly beneath their nesting points. At a cost of £30 for 2people this experience... More

I took 3 teenage boys to the Wyedean Activity Centre for a mornings climbing at Symonds Yat. easy to book and reasonably priced. The instructor was great - gave advice about how to approach the climb but not so much it took away the challenge. The boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves and can't wait to do more.

Booked last minute whilst visiting Symonds Yat. The service was professional and efficient. After a detailed brief by one of the staff we were dropped off upriver for our canoeing adventure. The paddle down river was magical. Well worth what we paid. We experienced a half day trip from Kerne Bridge. Would recommend to all.

Hired three Canoes for nine people on 26 May 2015. I tried to rent for the half-day trip to Monmouth AS STATED on the website but the lady on the phone insisted I'd need a full day hire to do that. I gave in too easily as I had visitors to entertain and didn't want to let them down. Arrived... More

We are sorry on the half day and day bookings confusion, but if you book a canoe for 11 am, it will run across the day and we can not hire it out in the afternoon,hence it would be for the day hire. Every one has a different paddling pace,you did have the option of going on down to Redbrook... More

We had a half day lesson, learning kayaking basics with Phil, our instructor for the session. He was very thorough and covered the safety things we needed to know as well as doing some fun activities. Group size is 10 max. We then paddled the rapids at Symonds Yat, which we all enjoyed. It was a fun session. Great food... More

We had a lovely paddle up the river. Although I have to be honest.... the experience was not quite as magical as we had hoped. We rang beforehand to ask if we should book and they said not to worry. But when we got there we were told to come back a little later.... that's all fine but just dissapointing... More

We are pleased this customer enjoyed their canoe hire with us. However we cannot take bookings for a 1 hour canoe hire, It is first come first served. We requested this party to come back a little later because we were dealing with a large group. Being a bank holiday and a hot one at that, We were sorry for... More

We had a brilliant afternoon as part of my boyfriend's birthday. We went on the 29th April whilst enjoying a weeks holiday in the forest of Dean. Shane (The Irish one) was really friendly, really helpful and we had a good laugh with him on the way to the drop off zone. After a brief safety/basics run through we were... More
