This is a fantastic canoe and camping trip for those who want to experience the best of the river and woodland camping, sandwiching a longer day followed by a shorter one as a reward. We will meet you in Bedford at Longholme Café and Boating Lake, kit you out in paddling equipment before giving you full bank tuition and then you are ready to set off. To make your trip even more enjoyable, why not opt for our bag drop off and collect service, so you bags will be waiting in your clearing upon your arrival. After a stunning paddle through the countryside you will arrive at Matchstick Wood, on the banks of the river. You will get your own private clearing in the woodland, complete with long drop loo, log store and most importantly campfire, to sit round under the starry night sky.
Once you’ve pitched your tent, have the campfire roaring with the wine/ beer cooling in the brook this trip will seem like the ideal tonic to a busy life, allowing you to spend some quality time in the great outdoors. You will have you boat ready on site for the following day, so you can get back on the water and enjoy some time with nature.
