Slow without the sloth.

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... read more

I booked caving as a surprise for my husband's 50th birthday and we had a fantastic time. We were completely out of our comfort zone but our instructor, Olly, was brilliant. He put us at ease and we totally trusted in his guidance and instruction. If he said 'you can get through there' we believed him. He clearly knows his... More

This outfit is run by a particularly rude and unpleasant manager...As many many others have stated try one of the numerous other FRIENDLY canoe companies.

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

Decided whilst on holiday I would have a go at canoeing!! My husband kayaks regularly but I don't... Given the equipment and paddles and a safety briefing then taken by minibus to kerne bridge for a 9 mile paddle back down, beautiful scenery but boy was it hard work with the wind against you, a couple of stretches of moderately...

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...
