The canoe hire centre is in the grounds of the Paddocks Hotel. Look out for the entrance to the hotel on the left as you pass through Symonds Yat West village. Do not rely on the Sat Nav. It will take you past the entrance and on to the Old Ferrie Inn - the Centre is not at the Ferrie Inn.
Just past the Wye Knot Inn is the entrance to the Paddocks Hotel. Pass under the Paddocks Hotel sign and you will find the Hire Centre at the rear of the hotel through a gateway.
