Here is what our customers say about their experiences with their Canal Boat Holidays.

"We have just returned from a great week onboard Wisp of the Water (from Worcester Marina) and wanted to take the opportunity to say how absolutely delighted we were with the new boat design"

M & J Williamson

We hired a boat from your company from Thursday April 14th until Thursday April 21st and travelled round the Cheshire Ring from your Anderton Base. We would like to say how much we enjoyed our holiday. The staff at the Anderton Base were very friendly and helpful."


"The stag do was fantastic thanks! We were very happy with the service and everything to do with the boat went very well. A great weekend was had by all. Honestly we can't think of anything to change. Thanks for your help organising it. Cheers"


"I just want to thank you for the wonderful holiday, we just had from 19th-24th Feb Union Wharf, it was the first time we had been on a canal boat and it was fantastic and we will definately be doing it again, the children loved it seeing all the wildlife and helping with the locks, your staff were brilliant and so helpful, your boats are so well equipped with everything you need. thankyou very much again"

The Todd Family

"I'd like to say a big 'thank you' to the staff at Union Wharf for the great service afforded us last weekend. We had a warm welcome and received explanations about the process for loading the boat, the tuition and how your system works, including how things worked on board. We were very pleased with the boat - good condition, clean, tidy and very well equipped. The tuition and information we received was straightforward and well-delivered, which helped us to enjoy a very lovely weekend - thank you. I would certainly recommend you in the future."

Sue Bridgehouse

"Five friends and myself have just returned from a 4-day narrow boat holiday in Shropshire, which we booked through yourselves. I just wanted to say, on behalf of the group, what a great experience we had from start to finish. The boat was impeccable and the staff at the marina were very friendly and helpful. Even the weather turned out nice. We will definitely be booking a boat with you in the near future and perhaps trying out one of the other canals available."

Rob Gallie, Surrey

"We've just returned from Ellesmere where we picked up our canal boat for our holidays last week. We really enjoyed our holiday and we were very impressed with the standard of the boat 'Great Western 84'. We found the boat yard staff very friendly and helpful and with a bit of guidance from them we soon became masters of the waterways. A great holiday and we hope to do it again soon."

Cyril & Margaret Steer & Friends

"I just want to write to thank you for the excellent service my group experienced at the weekend with your company. The team at the wharf were very thorough and friendly and the boats were very well equipped. Everyone had a fantastic time and we were lucky with the weather. Please pass my thanks onto your team."

Jeff Scarborough

"In twenty years of canal boating we think this was the most comfortable / well appointed boat we have had and also the easiest to drive by far! Staff were super at both arrival and departure."

Mrs W.N. Watson - Bedford

"Thank you for the help and advice you gave us, which made our week aboard Castaway such a success."

John Temple - Oxford

"Just a line to say thanks. We have recently hired the boat Devon Maid No2 off you w/c 09/02/08 from your Blackwater Meadow Marina on the Llangollen. The boat was superb and much better than what we had hired previously from other companies. The staff at the marina were friendly & efficient. We will definitely be hiring from you again."

Steve Cross

"We had a canal holiday 27th-31st March and would just like to say what excellent value for money it was and how enjoyable. The staff were always extremely helpful."

J Wilmot

"Just had a wonderful 3 days on the Coventry canal. Never done it before but Chris made it so simple. Thank you for such a friendly, efficient and comprehensive service. Couldn't have been better"

Chris T-R

"I had to write and tell you what a wonderful time we had on one of your boats. We went from Union Wharf and found the whole experience fantastic. The standard of service shown by your staff and the quality of boat was amazing. None of us had ever been on a narrow boat before but by the time the training was over we felt confident to hit the canal. We had such a good time that even the weather did not matter. Will we be doing it again? Definitely YES! Will we go with you again? You Betcha!."

Best regards, Tony Whitmore
