We provide canoe/kayak storage for those bringing their own craft, which can be launched directly into the Wye just a few minutes away from the cottage from a private launch site by kind permission, which we have arranged exclusively for our guests. Alternatively there is a public launch site a couple of miles away at Kerne Bridge. In addition if you do not want to bring your own craft there are several canoe hire companies who can take care of all your needs including transportation. There is a wide variety of half/full day and longer trips available or you can just hire a boat for a few hours, picnicking or stopping at one of the riverside pubs along the way.

The beautiful nature and various outdoor pursuits kept us very busy. Our favourites included canoeing from Kerne Bridge down to Symonds Yat.
