UPDATE: 23rd February 2021

Having digested the contents of the Prime Ministers roadmap to cautiously ease lockdown restrictions we aim to start operating activities on a limited basis from Monday the 29th March.

Initially this will be operating under the rule of 6 (or two households), with full precautions to minimise risk to customers and staff.

You can read the full detailed roadmap guidance here with relevant sections on pages 31, 34-36.

To make a reservation you can CHECK LIVE AVAILABILITY AND BOOK ONLINE or get in touch by phone or the contact form .

(The two campsites that we operate from are hoping to welcome campers back from Monday 12th April 2021).


Just imagine what it would be like: drifting down the river, with the prospect of a pub lunch along the way. You are with your family or friends, enjoying some of the country’s best countryside, and can’t decide whether to have the home made steak pie or cheddar ploughmans!

What our customers are saying

We really enjoyed our trip down to Hoarwithy. It was a great afternoon on the river, especially our stop off for a quick paddle and a picnic. This was made all the better by the staff being very helpful cheerful and friendly. We can definately recommend this place, and will be sure to come back

About Hereford Canoe Hire

ltg-europe-2017-winnerWe occupy one of the quietest and safest stretches of the Wye and work hard to keep it that way, so our clients enjoy a safe and relaxing adventure.

This means that we choose not to deal with stag parties (sorry boys) and those who can spoil the enjoyment of other river users. Our stretch of the Wye is ideal for both the novice and family, or anyone who wants to be absorbed in this beautiful, quiet stretch of countryside. You can hire a canoe for any period from 2 hours to 5 days, so you paddle away at your own pace. We’re delighted to advise on routes and stopping places along the way where you can be fed and watered.

We provide a high level of service from the moment we meet and brief you, to the moment we pick you up. The team at Hereford Canoe Hire are enthusiasts about making a great day out for you. We’ve got great canoes and safety equipment and are keen for you to share our enjoyment of this wonderful river.
