More Extensive Cycling

For the more energetic, our bikes are available for long term hire, and you can take them where you wish. The Kennet and Avon Canal Towpath forms part of Route 4 of the National Cycle Network and The Wiltshire Cycleway passes or door.

Cycling On The Kennet And Avon Canal

The towpath offers traffic free and easy cycling for all the family. Stretching from the port of Bristol to the town of Reading over, through and along hills and valleys, the cities and towns along the way offer an interesting back drop to the wonderful country path.

Trailer and Bike

Bradford on Avon is an ideal start point for a day out. Ten miles to the city of Bath, or 12 miles to the market town of Devizes, with the famous Devizes flight of 29 Locks. See our map and gallery for a guide to the attractions and of course many wonderful canalside pubs along the way.

Canadian Canoes

Pack your ginger beer and marmite sandwiches and set off on a truly "Boys Own" adventure. Our canoes are very safe and easy to use. Canoes can be paddles solo, or can accommodate Mum, Dad and two children.

Canoeing on the Kennet and Avon

Bring The Children With You

Bike and canoe hire are less expensive than a child minder. We hire and sell top quality child trailers, trailer bikes and child seats. Canoeing on the canal is easy and safe. Childs helmets and life jackets for canoeing are free of charge. So prize them from the T.V and get them out into the fresh air.
