Canoe Hire on the River Wye

Our bunkhouse is the perfect place to launch onto the river Wye for a canoe or kayak trip. We have free parking (no need to battle for parking spaces at the Scout Hut by the bridge in Glasbury) as well as a cafe on site to pick up refreshments before you set off.

Half Day Paddle: Glasbury to Hay on Wye

From Glasbury to Hay on Wye a canoe or kayak trip is 5.5 miles or approximately 2 hours paddling. Glasbury is a picturesque town with easy access to the river Wye, making it a great place to start this paddle downstream. It is popular with all groups, no matter what ability level they are at! We will pick you up at the end of your trip, and transport you back to Glasbury where you can enjoy some hot showers and cup of tea or coffee at our cafe!

Full Day Canoe Hire on the River Wye: Glasbury to Whitney on Wye

If you decide to paddle further than just Glasbury to Hay-on-Wye, the second section of river between Hay-on-Wye and Whitney-on-Wye (a further 5.5 miles) is just as stunning and as you leave the area, it doesn’t take long before you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere again.

On arriving into Whitney-on-Wye, you will pass under the toll bridge where there is camping available. Alternatively half a mile further on at The Boat Inn pub there is also camping.
