Here at wyedean we love to hear how you enjoyed being with us. We would appreciate it if you could please take a moment of your time to leave us some honest feedback.

Sorry for the delay, but I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thankyou to everyone for a great trip. (9th-11th July) All boys and staff enjoyed every aspect of their time at Symonds Yat and are very much looking forward to returning.
Thanks for all your hard work in arranging this for us.

Kind Regards


Completed a canoe trip from Ross on Wye to Symonds Yat with Wye Dean Canoes on Tuesday. We had a great time and the staff were really helpful and informative, When we got back to Symonds Yat we had a chat about other routes with the office guys and we were so impressed with the professionalism of the whole team we booked another trip for Thursday.

Great company, great staff. Keep up the good work.

I have been organizing canoe camping expeditions on the Wye for the last 20+ years and participating for over 40!!!
Wyedean are able to handle everything I throw at them in terms of numbers of people and differing levels of skills.
The facilities are now very good and the location is stunning.. A pub nearby is a bonus when the canoeing is done and the camp is set up.
This years party was 48 adults and kids and it went without a hitch.. Thanks again Graham and the team at Wydean.. See you next year

Just to say thanks to Jane (Holly Barn) and all the staff at Wyedean Activity Centre for the weekend we just had. The kids all loved it and the camp site (and showers!) were excellent. We never do the same camp two years running but will definately be back at some point in the future. All the best, Dave Evans, Scout Leader, 1st St Mary’s Marshfield Scout Group. Please ensure this is passed on to all relevant staff who made our stay so good…thanks

Went canoeing with wyedean for the day with my parents.
Had a great day and was well looked after by the staff.

They were really helpful when getting us in and out of the water and told us exactly how to control the canoe properly. W
hen we arrived back at wyedean from our 9 mile trip all of the staff were interested in our day and that we enjoyed it.
We go canoeing allot and wyedean is definitely one company that we will be returning too. Thanks for a great day

Had a great time today took our 7 and 4 year old on the River Wye in a Canoe!
Only for an hour but it was great fun for all the family.
Recommend it for £18 for the hour, could have had longer but the hour was enough for the little one.

I would like to thank every one at Wyedean for a really wonderful and memorable weekend of canoeing. GREAT staff and very helpful and patient with novices such as myself.

A very positive response to our canoeing session- children thoroughly enjoyed it (highlight of the week for the majority). Being able to paddle so far down the river also allowed children to see so much of the river rather than focus on speed and agility. As adults, we also preferred the opportunity for children to use strength and develop their technique – some real teamwork was developed rather than shouting at one another during games, which we have seen in the past!

James was a credit to your centre, with motivation for children and great relationships and interactions.

Also thank you for your continued updates before the visit and flexibility.

Many Thanks

“As Usual, everything was fantastic for our stay. We Really enjoyed camping this year and the north barn kitchen was great.

The kids absolutely loved Magic and we have always been impressed with the instructors throughout the years.

If you could pass on our regards to all concerned we would appreciate it.

Many thanks for your continued, excellent service.

Kind Regards

I came canoeing in the Wye Valley with 6 other friends for the weekend and we had a great time!
Despite the recent rain the team managed to get us out on the water and we had a lot of fun.

All the staff were really helpful. We were impressed with the campsite too- lovely location and clean toilets and showers. Thanks very much!


I took 5 family members down the river from Kerne Bride on the 1/2 day trip and what an excellent way to spend an afternoon it was too!
We hired 3 of the 2 man canoes from the very friendly and helpful staff, who transported us via mini bus to the upstream location. It is all so well organised, that it instantly put the more apprehensive members of our crew, whom had not done anything like this before, completely at ease.
Very professional and highly recommended, I can’t wait to get back and try some of the other activities!
Many thanks
