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.

Great service, lovely route

Very friendly, helpful staff. Good value! Route was easy but fun, and very relaxing. We saw a few otters too! Great day out :) we even took the dog with us who enjoyed spotting all the wildlife!

A tranquil day on the river

Spending half a day on the river was a great way to see this party of the countryside. We saw swans, heron and kingfishers, but mainly our was the peaceful stretches of water and its banks that we passed by that made the day.
The guys were very professional and the cost was great value.
There was a variety of boats to choose from. My son and I used a double kayak which was easy to either glide down the river or get some speed up and ready to maneuver.

We did it!!!

We started at 9am and went 12 miles to Shrewsbury. Value for money is amazing, value of life experiences and memories is completely priceless. Thank you so much lads!
