Paddle from Wall Eden Farm across the beautiful Somerset Levels, via the villages of East Huntspill, Westhay and Meare. The canoe trip will allow you to explore the vast Somerset countryside and its beautiful wildlife.
After you have booked please arrive 15 minutes prior to your canoeing session. Come and see us in the reception and we will ensure you are fully equipped with everything you need for your canoeing adventure; this will include a buoyancy jacket, paddle and dry bag; please refer to the other sections to ensure you bring the correct resources with you. Once you are kitted out we will ask you to read our terms and conditions including health and safety aspects, which will require signing prior to your start on the water.
A member of the Wall Eden Adventure team will then take you and your group to the water where we will give a safety brief and help you into your Canadian canoe. As you leave Wall Eden Farm you will be heading east through the splendid Somerset Levels; when you feel ready paddle back to Wall Eden. As the river is calm and has little to no flow, paddling up and down river is nice and easy. We offer half day or full day hire, however you can paddle for as little time as you like, once you have had enough just turn around and head back to the farm.
In terms of history, the river has been navigable for thousands of years and was a vital waterway for traders, which gives you a great sense of the rivers importance as your water sport adventure begins. It is well documented that the Romans utilised the River Brue to aid the movement of peat after its extraction across the Somerset Levels. From your tandem canoe you will see the World War Two pillboxes which formed part of the British defensive line, with the aim of preventing German forces from invading. We are fortunate to have access to this wonderful river and we hope you visit to discover it yourself, whether in a canoe or sit on top kayak.
We are also in a great location for your canoeing, with easy access from Taunton, Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and Cheddar.
If you are looking to book a half day (9am – 12:30pm or 1pm – 4:30pm) or day (9am – 4:30pm) please contact us and we will be happy to help.
