Great for families with younger children or for people who just want more time to relax and enjoy this wonderful part of the Nene Valley

Day 1

You will start your river adventure at the Nine Arches bridge in Thrapston. With just 4 ½ miles to paddle to your camp you have plenty of time for messing around on the water. You will pass by 2 locks on your journey before arriving at your camp location near the village of Wadenhoe.

This camp is located at one of the most tranquil and beautiful locations along the River Nene. Just a short walk along the Nene Way and you pass the 800 year old church. The setting here is just idyllic. A short walk from here and you arrive at the Kings Head at Wadenhoe which dates back to the 17th Century. The perfect riverside thatched inn with an excellent reputation for its food, drink and atmosphere.

Included in this camp package is your camp kitchen, soft furnishings, tables and chairs and everything you need for a hearty cooked breakfast. The breakfast box contains thick rashers of dry cured back bacon and traditional recipe pork sausages from our local butcher, Seven Wells at Oundle. Delicious cooked over your camp fire. Eggs from our own hens, fresh tomato and a handful of mushrooms added to the pan and a large mug of tea or coffee makes a sumptuous breakfast and a great start to a day on the river.

Day 2

After breakfast you will continue your journey down river passing the splendid Lilford Hall, once the home of Sir Thomas Powys, who held the post of Attorney General to King James II. Once you reach Oundle Mill you can take the small pretty backwater that passes around Barnwell Country Park and return along the main river to Oundle Mill. From here we will collect you and transfer you back to your start point.
