WELCOME TO THE HOME OF RIVER STOUR BOATING,
A COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY

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 Country to the edge of the tidal estuary at Cattawade, near Manningtree.

Canoeing on the River Stour

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 coastal reedbeds 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 and tranquil.

One-day & two-day guided trips (with overnight camping) are available during weekends or midweek. Our season runs from April to September each summer.

The 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  - contact us.





Spring has Sprung!

Mallard ducklings have been spotted and swans are sitting on nests. Kingfishers are busy up and down the river. This is also a great time to see the trees bursting into leaf, so book your trip now.
