This is the ideal adventure to start to push yourself on! Day 1 covers our most popular half day trip, coupling the quintessential English countryside with the stunning historic Victorian Embankment of Bedford. This trip has been tailored for those who want to get the most out of spending a couple of days on the river.  You will begin jour journey in rural countryside at Kempston Mill shortly after reaching the beautiful architecture of Bedford, before potageing to the lower river to paddle onto to Matchstick Wood.  You will get your own private clearing in the woodland, complete with long drop loo, log store and most importantly, a 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 time to relax after a good days paddle.  The next day, will see you paddling back to Bedford around the Nature Reserves at Priory, teeming with wildlife, before arriving back at Longholme Café ready for a cup of tea and piece of cake after a day paddling.  To make things a little easier, why not let us take the strain and book our luggage service, allowing you free to enjoy your days on the water.
