CANOE HIRE ACCOMMODATION IN ROSS ON WYE
This page details the canoe hire accommodation in Ross on Wye. Ross is normally the last overnight stop on canoe hire trips that finish in Symonds Yat. There are quite a few options conveniently close to the river.
The first option you will come to is the Ross rowing club on river left. Then the main town for B&Bs, just a hundred yards along, again on the left. Then last of all at the bridge at Wilton, where a few more canoe friendly hotels and pubs are located.
The Ross Rowing Club is really the only place to camp in Ross on Wye. Located on the left bank as you make your way towards the town. They have two large fields close to the river and you can get access into their clubhouse to use the showers etc. The town is only a short walk away which makes this a great base to explore the area in the evening. Boasting some fantastic restaurants found on the high-street. You will need to book direct via their website RRC BOOKING PAGE. (TIP: make sure you pre-arrange this or they may be locked up when you arrive, as they have limited staffing hours).
