Blessed with a naturally sheltered landing site and wooden steps up to the top of the river bank, Tresseck Campsite is ideal for launching or recovering canoes.

Situated midway between Fownhope near Hereford and Ross-on-Wye the site is an excellent stop-off point for canoeists in need of a place to camp.

If a leisurely paddle for around half a day is more your scene, then either put your canoe in at Fownhope and disembark at the campsite, or launch at the site and climb out at Ross-on-Wye.

What better way to spend a day than lazily paddling down the truly beautiful River Wye, enjoying its abundance of wildlife?


Typical canoe times are:

  • Fownhope to Tresseck Campsite – 3-4 hours

  • Tresseck Campsite to Ross-on-Wye – 3.5 – 4.5 hours
