We spent a very happy and fun hour yesterday rowing down the River Leam from the Leam Boat Centre. The prices are very reasonable (but go for the 1 hour session, the 30 mins option is to short to get very far plus you'll find yourself enjoying it so much you won't want to turn around after 15 mins) and...

Very friendly staff. Even when I threw myself like a seal leaving the water onto the decking! There are a good variety of boats to choose from. We chose a Canadian canoe and the children chose a pedalo. The staff were also flexible when we swapped boats with 10 minutes to go, helping us to moor each time. A fun... More

I've been to the LBC a few times recently: my son's birthday party; a one star course; a family lesson; two more course for my son; a couple of hires and eventually trying out and buying a kayak. All the staff we have encountered have been friendly, professional and helpful and have encouraged us to learn as much as we... More

My kids have been here a couple of times over the summer for organised parties so I decided to rent a couple of kayaks one for my self and my five year old and one for my seven year old who has kayaked a few times before. Service was good and at £18 for 2 boats I thought not bad... More

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
