A group of us visited the centre yesterday and had the best time! We had a range of experience levels and everyone commented at how much fun they had (even the ones who capsized!) The staff were great and we can't wait to come back! Thoroughly recommend for complete beginners as well as the more experienced.

Fairly standard format. Get dropped off up the river the paddle back down again. This is a lovely stretch of river to canoe down. We were one adult and two children aged 10 and 13. It's a nice easy paddle, good boats and equipment and pleasant staff. We were allowed to bring our small dog on the canoe with us.

We signed up for a 3 hour trip in a 3 man canoe. We were provided with paddles, buoyancy-aids and a small waterproof barrel to store things in and then taken 9 miles up the river by minibus. The safety briefing was clear and the staff put us into the water and made sure that they were happy with our... More

Got driven from Symonds Yat to Kerne Bridge, from where we rowed back to Symonds Yat in an open canoe. Brilliant experience, easy and safe. Not hard work at all, at times we just rested the paddles on our knees and let the current take us downstream. Well instructed by the very personable and helpful staff before we set off.... More

We hired a canoe for half a day. The staff were helpful however you really need to be fit enough to unload the canoe from the trailer and get it in the water. We had hired aluminium canoes which were really heavy, fortunately there were some strong able bodied men in the group to help, but we should have been... More

We had a brilliant time canoeing on the river Wye, the staff at Wyedean were fantastic and it made our trip really enjoyable. I spent 2 days canoeing on the River Wye with my 8yo son and it was a real adventure. I will certainly be going back to do some canoeing and exploring further down the Wye, the area... More

Had a brilliant day canoeing in the beautiful Wye valley. Had 2 canoes tied together like a catamaran so felt very safe for the kids. They really loved it, it was really special to be followed by a kingfisher throughout our trip too. Will definitely be booking again 😊

Lovely day out and a beautiful stretch of the river Wye. The river was rather busy, certainly much busier than further upstream. Wye dean were very efficient.

Thoroughly enjoyed our half day canoeing trip. Price was reasonable for a 3 hour trip. We had two canoes joined together as two of us were inexperienced but would not hesitate to try it again in a single boat. A trip down the river from Kearne bridge to Symonds yat is relatively sedate but very enjoyable. We even managed to... More
