Really Good Day Out

Really friendly helpful people and a nice day out on the river. Lovely chilled out route from Montford bridge with very few other people on the river, even on a very busy and hot summers day in Shrewsbury. Couldn't have asked for more from a canoe hire company really.

A Lovely Few Hours Spent Enjoying The Beautiful Shropshire Scenery & Wildlife

A great day out with friends. Good information & instructions given before we left Montford Bridge, new safety equipment provided, and kayaks were clean. When we arrived at Frankwell, Kieran was waiting for us. This is the second time we have been with these guys are they are very professional and it is a fun thing to do, especially with a group.

Lovely day on the river

Had a delightful day out with Hire a Canoe. Nicely organised and felt very safe with regards Covid precautions.
Sensible safety advice and equipment provided.
Once on the river we felt as if we were in a different world - with jumping fish, swans, damselflies, goosanders and kingfishers.
Looking forward to booking another trip soon.

Sunday Funday

We had an absolute blast. Ben was a fantastic instructor who made it great fun for us. We had a mix of complete beginners and those who had done a bit before. It was great to see a new bit of Shrewsbury. We finished up playing games and trying our hardest to get our last woman standing, in the river. Highly recommended. Will definitely be back! Huge thanks to Ben for making it so much fun!
