We have used these guys twice now and will be coming back as much as we can. They are so friendly and the lady next door is too. Better prices then we have in our area and a much nicer river to kayak on.

Lovely scenery and ideal for those who don't mind a bit of exercise of their date doesn't lift a finger. Head upstream to Mapledurham House if doing a short session

Thames canoes offer what the name suggests: canoes or kayaks to hire on the river. A great day out: paddle up the river to Mapledurham lock (cafe) or Pangbourne where there are pubs and cafes to find lunch, if you don't have a picnic. This...More
