We hired a pedalo for half an hour, for a family of 2 adults and 2 x 7 yr old kids. The staff were friendly, the activity reasonably priced and the river Leam is beautiful to tootle along. You can even hire VW Beetle style pedalos, as well as lots of other water-based activities, like motorboats, canoes, row boats, etc.... More

I had a fantastic day on the above course and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of starting canoeing. It surprised me just how much there is to the sport and how technical it can be, the course was worth while and really good fun. Very professional friendly staff, and will be back for the two star course! Shane

I chose to take my girlfriend for a rowing boat cruise up the River to propose to her - to reenact our first date - it was a hot Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately when we arrived there was a long queue which took almost half an hour to get to the desk. We were then told that we could only go... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your time with us. Apologies we were struggling for staff on the day - we felt it ourselves having been caught out by an exceptionally good day - one much better than the weather forecast had suggested it would be! We do hope that it hasn't put you off visiting and you... More

I've been paddling via the Leam boat centre for about a year - not often but a variety of 1 star, sea kayaking trip, weir lesson and independent paddling with friends. Staff are friendly, helpful, really knowledgeable and encouraging. As I'm a newbie to the sport and not very confident in my abilities. I know that I'd have been put... More

We have been using the Leam Boat Centre regularly for both hire and training for a couple of years now, after undertaking their Kayak Taster Session and getting hooked on paddling. We went on to undertake the 1 star training and assessment, the kayak Improvers course, the introduction to canoe, trips on the River Wye and a sea kayaking weekend.... More

Took 1,2 &3 Star rating here..Apart from the 1 star,the other two were dis-organised & unprofessional in my opinion. The 2 Star seemed 'frantic' and dis-organised and chaotic;although the river was running high at this time info.like this could have been found out prior to. The assessment on the 3 was taken by the manager and 1 other guy who... More

Always very helpful staff, I have a different requirement from many as I use my own inflatable boat and the launch decks are very well built and make launching an easier job, but the customer service is always excellent and they always make for a great day on the river, well worth a visit. I have also been given great... More

We went to the Leam Boat Centre to try out a kayak before buying. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the kayaks and which ones were the best buy for a family. We bought 2 Feelfree Geminis from them together with paddles etc. When we came to collect them the staff could not have been more helpful and... More
