Definitely recommend hiring a canoe for a 4 hour social distanced session. Great day out, very scenic and can stop off for a picnic anywhere that is suitable. You can use the 4 hours you have as you please. The staff were lovely and helped us when getting into the canoe and again when getting out. Felt very safe, covid-19 safety procedures in place. An amazing day that we won't forget!

Helpful staff - advised us where to go - and didn't mind the mud in the boat when we got back. Enjoyed a 4 hour trip in two open canoes up stream. Wonderfully peaceful as you head into the countryside; lots of wildlife. Would recommend, though our shoulders ached the following day!

We had an excellent trip in a double kayak. It is a beautiful and quiet stretch of the Thames, but also a mini adventure as you go further upstream and the river becomes narrower with more bends and small obstacles to manoeuvre around. Our booking was for 4hr and we ended up spending 3.5 hr on the water which was plenty sufficient for us. The booking process was very simple, and the confirmation email provided all the necessary information regarding parking. We parked in the Lechlade Riverside carpark which was only a short walk away. I would highly recommend using this company and the staff were extremely professional and friendly!

We really enjoyed out 4h trip in single kayaks. The staff were well organised and respected Covid safety measures. Quite a small parking, but you should be fine if you arrive in the morning or follow their guidance on alternative spots as outlined in the booking confirmation email. Equipment seemed in a good shape and the surroundings were gorgeous. It was a nice quiet strip of the river without motorboats.
