On The Nene Since 2010
For eleven years, Richard, Ian & all the team have been offering canoe hire on The River Nene in rural East Northamptonshire, with great safety & paddle briefings and oodles of great advice from knowledgeable staff, and all the equipment you’ll need, including paddles, buoyancy aids, watertight containers and portage trolleys. The River Nene is a lovely calm, gentle river, and is perfect for the novice paddler, and wherever required, we include pick-up or drop-off at the start or end of your trip, so you only paddle downstream.
And we still offer this great, simple service to this day
A Range Of Adventures
But just a year into our adventure, customers were asking for more. So, we introduced what has since become perhaps the most loved Canoe2 offering, our enhanced multi-day “Bundles” that also include overnight accommodation.
Discovering the most beautiful, tranquil stretches of river over 2, 3 or 4 days, you can enjoy overnight stays in carefully selected Bed & Breakfasts, Inns or Hotels. Or even go "Champing", camping in a glorious ancient church (shown above). And wherever you stay breakfast is included, as is our all-important baggage transfer, creating trips you just won’t want to end (honestly, just take a look at our Canoe2 TripAdvisor page )
The Boathouse at Rushden Lakes
And now that we’re based at Rushden Lakes leisure, retail & tourism destination, it's great to be offering many new services including hire of craft for shorter sessions on our lake, and opening our brand new shop where we’re enjoying meeting & advising customers, as well as selling canoes, kayaks & equipment from our ecologically sound, ‘Net Zero’ Energy Building, “The Boathouse”.
We even have a fabulous Meeting Room over-looking the lake, available for hire for corporate meetings, or private parties, and we're encouraging community use, with lower pricing for use by local community organisations and charities.
