Bredwardine

This beautiful village boasts a historic late 17th-century coaching inn called the Red Lion, a fascinating ancient church in St Andrews (featuring the tomb of the giant knight, Walter Baskerville) and its very own 12th Century castle (Bredwardine Castle). Keen ramblers should also take note that The Wye Valley Walk also passes through the village.

Let us help you plan the ultimate activity-packed escapade, or just a leisurely afternoon on the water, accompanying the swans, otters and all the other characters that call the River Wye home.

Below you’ll find all of our Bredwardine canoe hire trips (and what you can expect along the way) along with information about where to stay if you are ‘overnighting’. We will provide you with everything you need (except for a picnic). Any questions? Just give us a call – we’re a fountain of local knowledge!:
