Water sports in the Wye Valley


This area provides opportunities for a wide variety of water sports, making great use of the River Wye, which is directly outside Garth Cottage. There are hire companies that will rent you canoes or kayaks to glide down the river under your own power, stand up waterboards for the adventurous and further down the river in Chepstow you can find organised boat trips if you don’t feel like paddling. Anglers are also well served locally, not only in the river Wye, famous for its salmon, but also in a number of local lakes and streams offering a wealth of species to pursue, including trout, coarse fish and some fine specimen carp. We are happy to advise on the best source of information and equipment for our guests’ chosen water sports, and have long standing relationships with many local providers to make sure you get the very best out of your time here.
