Based in beautiful Symonds Yat East is Wyedean Canoe and Adventure Centre, the perfect place to take an activity packed holiday or hold a team building exercise. Proprietors Paul and Jane Howells have owned and managed the centre since 1973, offering a whole range of outdoor pursuits, ranging from a half day's canoe hire to a full week of virtually non-stop action. Wyedean Canoe and Adventure Centre is open to groups, families and individuals, from novice to expert ability.

Anything from canoeing and white water kayaking to raft building and river trips on the beautiful River Wye are available. You may also like to try another of the wide range of challenging activities on offer such as rock climbing, abseiling, archery, caving and ropes courses. There is an indoor climbing wall at the centre which is equipped with an abseil tower and caving ladders, should the weather be too wet for outdoor pursuits. All of the activities take place under the instruction of Wyedean's qualified staff, so you are always in safe hands.

The accommodation options at Wyedean fall into three categories. Self catering accommodation is available at Holly Barns, which is set in twenty acres of peaceful farmland, just two miles from the Centre. This bunk bedded accommodation can cater for two groups at a time, up to a maximum of fifty persons and comprises two fully equipped kitchens, two dining rooms and two specially prepared day rooms. Overhead and slide projectors are available upon request. Bedding is not included in the tariff so you will either need to bring your own with you, or alternatively you may hire it from the centre. Camping is also available and you need not worry if you don't have your own tent. A full camping pack is available for hire.

Families who prefer more homely accommodation may like to book into Penny Royal Cottage, a three bedroomed self catering cottage which can accommodate between six to eight persons. Bedding is supplied and both travel cots and high chairs are available. The private gardens have patio furniture and a barbecue for guests to use and there are many restaurants and bars just a short walk away.

If you are looking for a day out with a difference, Paul and his son Graham offer fantastic 'Race Track Days', which operate using the success and experience that has been gained over the last seven years during which Paul and Graham have been racing.

Clients spend the day at their chosen venue in a race prepared Porsche 911 or other super car of their choice and are given VIP treatment and lunch. They are then taken around the track by a top racing driver and given expert tuition laps, whilst experiencing the exhilaration of driving true race prepared cars.

A choice of excellent venues are available, including Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Donnington Park. Alternative circuits are available in the UK and Europe by special arrangement.

Wyedean Canoe and Adventure Centre in association with the Royal Hotel offer the perfect location for your team building and development conferences. Unique Conferences offer superb facilities at the hotel for your meeting, combined with challenging activities involving team work that are bound to make a real impact back in the work place.
