New for 2021- canoe & camp!
Canoe & Camp trips
Get together with friends and family again (after the 18th May) for a magical 2 day canoe trip down the River Severn, with overnight camp.
We're offering fixed canoe & camp dates, open to everyone to book (subject to availability) and bookings for groups of friends & families on request.
Enjoy an exciting Wild Camp on the banks of the river, exclusive to groups of 10 -20 people or on the set dates below, with its campfire area for cooking dinner & toasting marshmallows. This incredible Wild Camp is on Woodend Farm, next to the river bank, between Hampton Loade and the Country Park and is the ideal spot to relax and socialise with friends & family after a fun time on the water.
The Wild Camp is beautifully located with basic facilities including a nearby toilet & access to a shower at the nearby campsite.
The Canoe & Camp Trip
We'll meet you in Bridgnorth and help you pack your camping gear & food into waterproof barrels & dry bags provided by us for your trip (around 150L per canoe). You'll be given a river briefing & we'll get you kitted out and on to the water. A kit list will be issued in advance to help you plan your trip.
You'll then enjoy a 2-3 hour paddle to the Wild Camp location where you can set up your tent, relax, cook over the campfire and soak up the Great Outdoors. Stop for lunch at a riverside pub on the way to your camp, or enjoy a picnic by the water.
If you'd rather not cook your own dinner, there is an Indian & Chinese nearby in Highley that will deliver to Woodend Farm (you'll just need to walk up collect it) A takeaway by the River, how cool is that?!
The next morning, you can get up at your leisure and enjoy your second day of canoeing down the River Severn, choosing to end your day in either Arley or Bewdley (timings to be agreed in advance)
