Excellent facility in a fantastic location on the Thames. Very peaceful part of the river. We hired an open canoe for two of us plus our Yorkshire terrier dog. Life vests and paddles supplied and even a wet bag for our stuff. Thoroughly enjoyable morning and would definitely do this again. Staff helpful and friendly. Plus next to a fantastic riverside pub with good food. Recommended.

Had a lovely half day trip in a canadian canoe togehter with our 6 year old daughter. The team was really relaxed. Canoe was just fine, we got water tight bags for our stuff and off we went. The trip itself was downstream but the wind was against us so we still had some paddling to do. But the stretch of river is beatifull. Really green and peacefull, we even pulled out the canoe at one pint and went for a swim. Pick up was timely and neatly done.

Thanks for the great review. Sounds like you had a wonderful time, with a swim as well! We would love to know what let us down on the 5*, as we are always keen to improve. So if you'd like to get in touch at cotswoldcanoehire@gmail.com with the feedback that would be great.

We had a fantastic morning on the river, we rented a canoe for 4hrs but only used 2hrs because it was very hot and canoeing is hard work! We love the location of it because of the pub right next door and there is parking down the road. They are so friendly and helpful, they let us move our start time to 10am which was so helpful.

A lovely morning on the River Thames at Lechlade. Cotswold Canoe Hire is ideally located with good parking all around. We received a comprehensive briefing as this was our first time in a Kayak. And then we set off…. upstream and throughly enjoyed the whole experience. We hired the kayak for 3 hours and this allowed plenty of time to paddle upstream and back and then downriver to the lock. It was a midweek paddle so very quite on the river and peaceful. Definitely worth a try if you’ve never done it before or if you have then it’s worth hiring and going for a paddle upstream in a beautiful location.
