If you love the great outdoors and to try something different then try the Paddle & Steam. You take the steam train from Wroxham to Buxton. At Buxton you get kitted up in your life belt and get your paddle and canoe. If you are lucky, the lovely Emma will tighten your belt for you! She was so friendly and... More

We hired a tandem today for my husband and son (9th birthday treat). They were given their bike (with massive for hire sign attached) and kit and headed off up the Bure Valley cycle trail. The bike was so poorly maintained that part way my husband had to disconnect the rear break as it was constantly on making cycling very... More

My family (wife and four children aged 4, 8, 9 and 13 years old) and I had a great time on the half-day "Paddle Steamer" trip on a beautiful August day. We caught the Bure Valley Steam Railway (narrow gauge railway) from Coltishall (very limited parking at the "station" but plenty on street parking a short distance away) and took... More

We booked a paddle steamer day trip - taking the Bure valley train from Wroxham to Buxton and canoeing back. Great day out - we took a lunch break at the Rising Sun half way through the day. We finished about 4.30pm. Only comment is the directions to Buxton mill from the station weren't great (written instructions would help) -... More

Had a fab family day canoeing, fire lighting, den building and archery. Monkey was a knowledgeable guide and great at keeping my five and seven year olds engaged throughout the day, and while there were plenty of activities, the whole day felt relaxed and natural rather than regimented. They were kind and patient with our youngest when she refused to... More

Took the combined railway / canoe deal. A trip on the Bure Valley light railway from Wroxham to Buxton where we alighted, had some difficulty finding the meeting point as no signage (and no phone signal so unable to call office to check). A little late the Canoe Man team arrived and soon we were briefed and in the canoe.... More

We were picked up at Coltishall and driven to Buxton where we were helped into a two man canoe. We paddled downstream for a couple of hours, had that stretch of the river all to ourselves, not another boat in sight, just a few fishermen on the bank. It was idyllic, so peaceful and a very easy route for us... More

We did a guided trail from the Wroxham base. It was a lovely sunny day so the water was quite busy. Following a short tutorial we went off. The canoe was very stable and relatively easy to move through the water. We glided through the water very peacefully and were able to spot some wildlife and learn about the Broads.... More
