The pleasant crew (Husband & Wife) made it an extremely enjoyable afternoon who where more than happy to answer all kinds of questions & offered a great insight into their obvious passion for narrow boating. The hotpot/stew was lovely & well received on what was a cool winter afternoon, overall it was a great couple of hours doing something slightly different from the norm.

The people running it were lovely

The weather! Also the boat was basic, there were plastic covers over the top of it, so the visibility was very poor, and it leaked. It broke down at the first stop. There was very little information given about what we were passing.

Pleasant employees offered information about the canal, gave opportunity for a quick stop to look at the lock gates and provided humour. The hotpot lunch was lovely!

We had a lovely sunny Winters day for our trip, which was great!! There were 4 of us, then 2 other couples, who were very friendly and fun to be with, so 8 in total on the barge, the hot pot was very tasty and hot drinks served to keep us warm were welcome, our guide told us some of the history of the area, the 90mins barge trip just long enough for my 91yr old friend, it was a Christmas present as a go on a Barge was on her things to do list!!! Most enjoyable afternoon,

The only thing would have been the weather, if it had been bitter cold like the following day, I would suggest a heater near your feet? The sunshine we experienced made all the difference, even though we were wrapped up warm,I brought a sleeping bag to cover our legs while sitting in the barge.
