A spur of the moment thing having never done it before I was a little nervous but the staff were great and explained everything which but my mind at rest. Only went out for an hour but quickly got the hang of it. A very enjoyable experience

What a brilliant experience this was, 9 miles from Kerne Bridge to Symonds Yat. The whole thing was so well managed by the team at Wyedean, they are truly professional and although they are youngsters themselves show a creditable level of maturity in dealing with customers of all ages and experience levels. The '3 hour' trip we undertook gave the... More

We'd come to the Forest of Dean camping and had planned to try out canoeing. Thank goodness we decided on Wyedean Canoe Hire. The lady on reception knew our capabilities far better than we did fortunately. It was our first canoeing experience and she suggested an hour out in a canoe to get the feel of it. Well let me...

The staff helped us park, reviewed the use of a canoe to everyone, helped us get the canoe in the water. The route from Kerne was beautiful. Occasionally, the water was a little fast moving but that made it even more fun.

What a great way to spend a day, paddling down the river in a Canoe. From the moment we arrived, all staff that we dealt with were friendly and very helpful - great service, thank you. Very relaxing and a beautiful part of the country. This was our fourth time of doing this and we will certainly be back. Would... More

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.
