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!

My friend and I took a chance opting to canoe in October but it paid off despite a couple of bouts of quite heavy rain. Stunning scenery and so tranquil. Saw half a dozen fisherman and then nothing but swans, geese and other bird species. We did the '3 hour' trip in under that so the timings are generous, even... More

Hi Anne. Thank you very much for taking the time to review our service and very glad you enjoyed your trip in spite of the rain. In the head of the summer the river tends to run a little slower and the boats receive drag from the weeds in the river. Hence our timings seem very generous in the early... More

The company was easy to contact and find at Lucksall caravan site. They have a number of options for you to choose from depending on the time you have or inclination. We did the full day from Lucksall down to Ross on Wye. A long day but enjoyable. It was made a little challenging due to the low water level... More

Came down this way with friends, and heard about this business through trip advisor! We are so glad we didn't miss out on this experience and it was the hi light of our trip. Will was amazing as a guide and instructor for me and my friends who were not very experienced and the views are great! Would recommend this... More

Great to be back on the water after nearly two years, but this time in an open canoe. First time for me even after years of kayaking and my partner her very first river trip, well apart from a couple of hours with a sit on top kayak a couple of days before. We were very lucky with the glorious... More

Great service and instruction from Will. So much fun as we paddled from Hereford past fishermen, swans, ducks, cows, beautiful riverside homes and gardens. Surprised by a large salmon leaping out of the water right beside our canoe... The only water we took on board was from that leap!!

Recently hired a canoe from Hereford Canoe Hire and was very impressed. They are located within the lovely Lucksall Caravan Park (although they are a different company) and provide you with everything you need, including a suitable and relaxed safety briefing. Once equipped we were driven up to the centre of Hereford where we joined the river opposite the rowing... More

Excellent service, such a good little company. Made us feel happy and comfortable whilst getting onto the water. Clearly explained the route and where we were heading towards. Easy afternoon canoe, relaxing atmosphere across the river Wye, very enjoyable. They were more than happy to pick us up after and return us to our cars. Ideal location

A well-run activity by Will and his team at Hereford Canoe Hire, everything was taken care of, all pick ups and collections were seamless and overall excellent customer service and value for money. Would hugely recommend anyone seeking a fun activity with a dose of challenge to book with HCH.

Hired a canoe with my partner for a 9 mile half day afternoon trip. Although it was a windy, slightly drizzly day we made the most of it and enjoyed a beautiful day. Followed a heron downstream for miles, saw hundreds of swans, ducks and other birds I wouldn't know the names of. The instructor was informative and friendly although... More
