GOC Canoeing weekend on the Severn

28 Apr 2017 | Transpennine, Adventure Out Groups


Fourteen of us passed a fabulous weekend canoeing on the Severn in two-person Canadian style canoes last July, camping and socialising at the Royal Hill pub.  The canoe weekends are a highlight of the GOC programme for me, and it’s a shame many members are put off by the thought of having to stay in a tent with the lack of comfort that conjures up in many people’s minds.  Sleeping under canvass can be a wonderful experience though; the nights seem stiller and deeper, the countryside more real with just a length of cotton separating you from it all.  But it is important to be comfortable too.

This year the weekend promises to offer the best of both worlds; instead of just a camping option, we have managed secure the use of a few very comfortable geodesic camping domes, which include carpets, beds, bedding, electric lights and wood burning stoves. We are still on an idyllic peaceful camp site - right next to the river Wye at Hay on Wye.  So why not join us the first weekend this coming July and swap your childhood memories of uncomfortable camping for a proper grown up glamping experience?  Follow the link below to make a booking.  (You will have to be quick though because the special price of £35 per night is only available for a couple of weeks)
