Route Description

Fantastic 4-day Adventure, taking in 34 miles of river. You’ll start out from our base at The Boathouse at Rushden Lakes, heading downstream to Islip/Thrapston for your first overnight stop at either The Woolpack Inn or The Bridge Hotel, then on day two, continue to Barnwell (perhaps via the idyllic Kings Head riverside pub at Wadenhoe for lunch) to stop at the fabulous Lower Farm B&B. Day three sees you continue downstream to Fotheringhay where you’ll stay at the beautiful Castle Farm Guest House, right by the river. The 4th and final day, you can continue downstream to the final pick-up point at Wansford, ready for your transfer back to your start-point. Alternatively, if you prefer, you could on your last day simply choose to explore the river around Fotheringhay further, or simply take some pleasant walks around Fotheringhay, or spend a long lunch in the excellent Falcon Pub, serving superb food & drink. We can always pick up from Fotheringhay if you wish. Great accommodation, all our favourite backwaters, and plenty of pubs & tea rooms all help make this an incredible and unforgettable adventure on our beautiful River Nene.
