Super trip and helpful staff

Wonderful trip and great company to hire canoes from.

Kieron and Aaron were really helpful through the booking and on the day itself. Booking was quick and simple.

We were met at Bewdley and driven to our start point of Hampton Loade, kitted out with buoyancy aids etc and told about the river (what to expect, which side of islands to paddle, good lunch point) and offered advice on paddle technique.

Such an amazing way to travel, seeing so many things you’d miss if walking the river route or in the car. So quiet - just birdsong for most of our canoe to Bewdley. We saw 2 herons, tonnes of sand martins, geese, swans, mallards and goosander ducks; and caught sight of several Severn Valley Railway trains.

We will definitely use this firm again - looking forward to doing the longer trip from Bridgnorth to Bewdley and one of the trips from their other base in Shrewsbury!

Beautiful canoe experience on the Severn

We booked with this brilliant company a half day family canoe experience. The section of the river Severn that we canoed down (in two canoes of one parent, one child) was beautiful. We saw loads of wildlife, a passing steam train over one of the bridges and the welcome you get with a fantastic bar with river view at Bewdley Rowing Club at the end, was superb. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who is in the area. Brilliant to experience the beauty of this section of the river Severn. No prior canoeing experience is required.

Great day canoeing around Bewdley

We had an amazing half day with the Hire a Canoe team. We met at Bewdley rowing club for transport up the river. Glorious weather and amazing scenery. Gentle rapids were fun. We were lucky to canoe under the bridge while the steam train went overhead - just regret not bringing my camera ( which could have gone in the stay dry bag they supplied!). Finished the trip with a couple of pints at the Rowing club chatting to the incredibly friendly bar manager. Strongly recommend this trip and the Hire a Canoe team.
