Had lots of fun with friends, great price too. We would definitely do it again. Got a bit confused with where we were supposed to get off but we found it. Overall would recommend to others :)

For two years now I have taken 16 or so Dads and their children on 2 day canoeing trips. Richard at Ross Canoe hire has always worked hard to make it a memorable experience for us all, suggesting suitable journeys and giving heaps of valuable advice.

Fantastic value! Wonderful scenery made all the more enjoyable by knowing we have the backup of one of the top canoe hire outfits! I can't recommend them enough!

16 of us went as a mixed group for my friend's 30th birthday party. It was great fun. We stayed at Sterrets campsite which was right next door to the canoe hire center so also really easy to get to. From the campsite there were steps up to a pub, called the Wye Nott, so we had everything that we needed in walking distance. Would definitely recommend.

The four of us done the full day from Ross to Symonds Yacht which proved to be an amazing day, great waters and scenery. We parked in the free car park at the canoe centre where we were greeted, provided with our equipment and driven by minibus to the starting zone. Richard and his Dad gave us all the advice and help we needed before we started the trip. We were also given a couple of maps to show us the various stop off points along the way if you fancied a meal or drink at the local bars or if you wanted a picnic. It was a relaxing environment to take you away from it all along with many laughs along the way... Whatever your level you'll be fine as the current helps take you down also, but you can go as fast as you like...! We arrived at the finish\collection point down the river where Richard and his Dad were already waiitng for us to load the canoes and take us back tot the car. A great day out, thanks again!

I can't recommed The Canoe Hire Company enough. We've now been twice and would gladly go back again.

Richard booked us in with a small deposit where most companies were looking for the full cost of the trip up front. Unfortunately, two people dropped out the first time we went and this was sorted with no difficulty.

The half day was quite enough exercise for us, but fitter people would love the full day. For us, it was a lesuirely trip down a scenic route with an oppotunity to stop off at the pub on the way down.

In all, a great day out full of laughter and The Canoe Hire Company will definitely look after you if our experience was anything to go by. Looking forward to our next trip down!
