Canoe Hire Hereford

Canoeing or kayaking down the river from Hereford makes a beautiful day out. Groups can launch on the right back below the old road bridge. No permission is required to launch or land and there is parking nearby.

This section of the River Wye is very picturesque, winding through many small villages. The first of these, Hampton Bishop, has a village pub called the ‘Bunch of Carrots‘ which takes its unusual name from a salmon pool nearby. Nine miles on from Hereford the River Wye is joined by the River Lugg, and just beyond this is Holme Lacy Bridge. This is a good point to stop if you are just wanting a 3-4 hr trip. See our page Hereford to Holme Lacy Bridge for more information.

Beyond Holme Lacy Bridge the river starts meandering through a more wooded section, so keep your eyes out for deer and other wildlife. After another 14 miles you will reach Hoarwithy, with a campsite and great pub – the New Harp Inn.
