want to canoe? is the premier canoe hire company in the Wye Valley area. We offer kayak and canoe trips for adults and children that can begin or conclude by the picturesque red brick bridge at Bredwardine, Hereford.

Keen ramblers should also take note that The Wye Valley Walk also passes through the village.
