Canoeing

Lucksall is located next to the River Wye with two access points down to the River, a floating pontoon, one is just to the rear of the Riverside Bar & Eatery and the other is located at the lower end of the Caravan Park. 

If you have your own Canoe, Kayak or paddle board, why not bring it with you? You're welcome to use the pontoons to launch and land during your stay. 

Canoe Hire is available from external companies.

Caution should be observed at all times by everyone using the access points when accessing the River wye especially with children. The pontoons are not a fixed structure and move with the current.

Please be aware the River Wye is fast flowing caution should be taken at all times especially with Children which must be supervised at all times. The River Wye has many under currents and the pontoon is not a fixed structure and moves with the current of the River. Don’t take risks and never underestimate the power of the River.

Children must be supervised at all times.

Why not bring your own?

  • We have two access points to the River Wye which you are welcome to use during your stay at your own leisure and just land/launch as you wish.
  • We don’t recommend travelling past the bottom access point due to the strong currents making paddling back up stream very difficult. Instead we would recommend paddling up river from Lucksall, approx ½ mile upstream is where the smaller River Lugg meets the River Wye. Depending on equipment and skill level it is possible to travel up the Lugg or continue up the Wye.
