River Wye Canoe Hire and Guided Adventure Tours

Want to canoe? Is ideally situated on the banks of the River Wye in Hay on Wye on our small, organic, family-run farm. The farm, as well as arable and pasture also offers a gorgeous mile-stretch of riverbank, ancient woodland areas, camping, glamping, BnB and self-catering as well as Hayfield Community Garden, sheep, pigs, chickens, horses and a market-garden raspberry patch!

We warmly invite you to hire a canoe and discover the beauty of the River Wye. The Wye is by far one of the most beautiful rivers in the British Isles and one of the few you can navigate by canoe, without restriction, for well over 100 miles. Want to canoe? Offer you the chance to embark on a relaxing river adventure from several different points along the way, with an array of different routes to choose from, all with their own unique sights, sounds and smells.

From its source at the Welsh mountains at Plynlimon, the water meanders through miles of picturesque countryside and diverse wildlife, passing the bustling market towns of Hay-on-Wye, Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth; the city of Hereford, and the charming, picture-postcard villages of Glasbury, Symonds Yat and Tintern, before joining the River Severn at Chepstow.

Along your journey, you can expect to see a number of spectacular and fascinating characters in their natural habitats, including kingfishers, herons, cormorants, swans and otters – all from the prime viewpoint of your canoe.

This peaceful and ever-changing setting is the ideal place to while away a few hours, spend a day or even a week. Furthermore, what better way to get a bit of aerobic and cardiovascular exercise than canoeing the Wye? Burning calories has never been so relaxing!

Why not combine your adventures on the river with a leisurely stroll around the bookshops, markets and historic sites in our friendly and vibrant market town of Hay on Wye. It’s only five minutes’ walk over the bridge to town so make a day of it or even stay over!

Contact Clare and Aubrey in the office to start planning your adventures. . .
