River Stour Boating provides 1 and 2-day guided trips
by Canadian canoe along the navigable length
of the beautiful river Stour in Suffolk.
Trips run downriver from the historic market
town of Sudbury, through the
Dedham Vale Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty and Constable
Cattawade near Manningtree on
the tidal estuary.
The 25 mile journey passes through
some of the most
idyllic and famous Suffolk
scenery including Stratford St Mary
and Dedham in Constable country.
There is much wildlife to
see on this
quiet river - including herons, kingfishers, swans, buzzards, several varieties of dragonflies and freshwater fish.
Down at the estuary there are
and birds of prey such as marsh harriers.
We will see evidence of otters - the
very lucky few may even see one. Most of the countryside
along the route is
not accessible by
public footpath and apart from the
occasional fisherman, the journey
along the river by canoe is peaceful
One-day & two-day
guided trips (with overnight camping) are
available during weekends or midweek. Our
season runs from April to
September each summer.
trips are ideal
for couples and friends, family
groups, corporate team-building,
work colleagues and clubs. We can take a maximum of ten
people per trip which can be made up of
several parties. We give a
discounted rate for groups of 10 -
last trip of the season has now been
