It cost my partner and I £35 to hire a 2man canadian canoe for half a day and it was absolutely brilliant. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the route was idyllic. Would definitely recommend this activity to anyone staying around the area.

I believe so - but I'd recommend ringing on the morning to ask re availability. They were flexible with us as had another large group so we went a bit earlier than 1pm so they could take us up the river..
