We were well looked after by Sonia, whose patient explanation of the boat and river rules was most helpful for four landlubbers. The boat was clean and tidy (we had a picnic boat) and relatively easy to handle. Can thoroughly recommend this company.

We stayed in this delightful houseboat for a week. Being used to cottage holidays this was a bit different, though not as different as we expected as it is more like a floating lodge than a boat. It doesn't disappoint though, as although it is...More
