Rowan Craft Ltd – Canoe and Day Launch Hire

Canoe the beautiful southern rivers from a wonderfully peaceful location. Friendly staff will patiently help you get on the water.

Opening Times

Geldeston is a peaceful village and Rowan Craft is no exception. The serenity of being on this fantastic stretch of the Waveney is highlighted by the abundance of wildlife. The gentle flow of the river makes it ideal for families or anyone who likes an easy paddle.

From Rowan Craft you can choose to go upstream to the nearby Locks Inn, a great pub with lots of character and history, not to mention real ales.

If you’re looking to make more of a day of it, why not paddle downstream to Beccles? With fantastic restaurants like the Waveney House Hotel, delicatessens, shops and more Beccles is a great place to moor up your canoe and take a short walk into town.
