A holiday with all the pleasures of boating, good food, services
and advantage of a hotel – no chores and best of all we felt like
honoured guests living with a family doing as much or as little as
we liked. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Here we are at the end of your maiden voyage. We both started out as
‘virgins’ you as the boat owners and us as the first-time canalers,
and we all enjoyed it! It has been a successful and really
interesting journey, without many hiccups, with the most wonderful
cooking and equally wonderful company. Brian and I wish you every
success in this new venture and hope favour and good fortune smile
on you both! Many thanks and good luck.
