Canoe and Kayak Hire in Oxfordshire
Why not spend some time out on the water in the idyllic setting of the Oxford Canal in Thrupp, Kidlington, Oxfordshire? Enjoy the scenic routes towards Oxford City Centre or head north towards Shipton or further afield towards Napton and beyond. (If you’re feeling really adventurous you could even get as far as Coventry on the Oxford Canal!)
We can offer a range of craft experiences at Thrupp – canoe, kayak, hydrobike and paddleboard hire. It is a truly fantastic way to spend a day out with friends or family, a birthday, stag or hen celebrations or bond with your work colleagues. We have lots of crafts for hire so large groups are welcome. Whatever the occasion we can create the perfect package to accommodate you. And great news, our buoyancy aids and paddles are provided within your hire charge. For those of you who are confused about which craft is which… you are ON a kayak and IN a canoe!
We are happy for you to bring your children or your pets (or both). We have buoyancy aids for young children (but not pets) and special pint-sized paddles for them to help you!
Just remember, children and pets are your responsibility at all times – both on land and on the water. Under 18s must be accompanied on the water by an adult (18+).
We can accommodate an hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, full day… in fact hire for as many hours or days as you want! Time slots for all crafts run on the hour subject to availability so why not book now and contact us on 01865 376 176.
Come and visit our friendly team at Thrupp, we guarantee you’ll have lots of fun.
"Very friendly and helpful chap who hired out the kayaks and gave a sensible and helpful safety briefing. Kayaks and life jackets were of good quality. Great way to see the river and countryside on a sunny day, with a snack at Annie's tea rooms to follow. Highly recommended."
"We had such fun at Thrupp. We had a canoe that all 4 of us could sit comfortably. Everyone involved was so kind, helpful and good health and safety advice like “try not to fall in”! Such a gorgeous day would definitely recommend going ????"
"We went as a family group along with my autistic son, booked three boats, and turned up for our hour on the water. The staff were well organised, helpful and knowledgeable. We had a fantastic time, and the children are begging to go back again. This is a fantastic activity to do and at a very reasonable cost."
"We loved our canoe experience at Thrupp Canoe and Kayak Hire today. We’d been before but not for a while - the boys loved sitting in front and guiding the boat. All well organised and everything is spotlessly clean. We had a lovely ice cream in Annie’s Tea Room next door too."
All that paddling can work up quite an appetite!
Why not pop next door to Annie’s Tea Room for a delicious sandwich, cake, or cream tea to refuel when you have finished?
