Canoe-Camp-Canoe! 12 miles of canoeing on the River Severn with an overnight stay at our wild campsite.
What type of kayak?
We have a fleet of yellow Venture Flex 11 kayaks, which are stable and have a large cockpit for easy access.
You can carry a bottle of water and a few essentials in the main cockpit for easy access and stow away anything else in the storage hatch at the back.
Who are they suitable for?
Our kayaks are suitable for ages 13+ but there must always be an adult on the water to supervise and kayaks must be hired along with another craft to ensure there are at least two people on the water together, for safety reasons.
What do I need to bring?
Not much! Just some water, snacks and maybe suncream!
We will provide you with a buoyancy aid and we have dry bags and/or small barrels available if required.
Our kayaks have a hatch at the back if you are intending to stop off for a picnic or for more adventurous types taking the kayak on a camping trip!
"...the best part about the kayak trip is the peace and solitude one gets as you paddle through the countryside without a care in the world...you can't beat it!"
