This is a lovely stretch of river. We decided to do this over a whole day to allow for lunch and some river swimming. We took 5 kids aged 7 to 12 and all had a wonderful time. The canoes from Wyedean were indestructible aluminium ones which paddled well and the bus service was efficient with proper seatbelts on the... More

visited here intending to do a half day canoe trip, without booking in advance. Arrived about 11.30 the next session was 1 and was fully booked, so we did a 2 hour trip from where we booked it. Parking was a bit awkward and 4 hours cost £4, but got sorted, had a briefing, put our stuff in a barrel,... More

Another great short break at Wyedean. My 8 Year old son and I did the 3 hour Kayaking session and the following morning we did the 3 hour Caving activity up by Yat Rock in the forest. Both activities were with the excellent leader/ instructor, Tommy, who made it very enjoyable for all. Caving was a particular highlight and was... More

Vicky who liaised with us was very thorough, gave us good advice, helped us with the planning and organisation with answering all our questions asap, keeping in good phone and email contact. 72 of our staff participated either in: canoeing, raft building and then...

Me and a group of friends recently booked a two day trip with Wyedean canoe hire, when we arrived we was spoken to like a bunch of children, they was very rude. All of us have plenty of experience on the river but they wouldn't let us do it in pairs, they insisted on us strapping two canoes together so... More

We purchased the half day canoe experience from our lodge site, nearby. On arrival, we had to provide a drivers licence, which was held securely. We were knitted out with life jackets and paddles, and then viewed a 5minute safety demonstration. The group then hopped onto the mini bus and took a 10 minute drive upstream. We were all set...

We went with this company as they were the only one who would help out the 'odd' group I had. Adult to child ratios are obviously very important for safety, I (one adult)was with a 5, 10 and 15 year old. All other companies said that they couldn't hire canoes to us because we needed two adults for the 5... More

A place out of the way with a couple of nice places to eat and drink, and some b&bs. We stayed in our campervan with a few others by the river under the willow trees. It's a place that caters for the canoeing enthusiast and school trips. We had a walk and sat by the river watching wildlife and the... More
