Your recent holiday on Derwent - Niord from Gailey Wharf

Boat, rout, weather were all excellent. A few more directions and recommendation about where to stop and what to see would have helped. Two extra days would have allowed us to visit Shugborough Hall

Your recent holiday on Warbler - Hooded Warbler from Whitchurch Marina

“Life at the speed of a canal”...what a relaxing and unique vacation we had on the Llangollen Canal! From the minute we arrived at Whitchurch Marina we were impressed with the staff, the boat and the accommodations. The Hooded Warbler, just a year old, was shiny and clean and well stocked. Our Captain (Steve) and Chief Engineer (Jason) did an admirable job manning the stern. Miss-Chief (Karen) kept an eye on the map and route, and Lock Labourer (Nancy) and General Dogsbody (Elisabeth) pitched in with ropes, windlasses and water hose, while Galley Slave (Beryl) kept the saloon ship shape! We loved the camaraderie of canal life, the canalside scenery, the cute towns, pubs and shops, the bird calls and sheep chatter, and especially the quiet overnights under shady trees.

Your recent holiday on Grebe - Hooded Grebe from Rugby Wharf

Staff, as always great. Boat clean and well equipped, though the livery looked a little tired. An analogue radio would be better as digital signal often abysmal. Seating could be more comfortable, too! However, we love ABC boathire and staff and will no doubt be back for another adventure afloat.

Your recent holiday on Owl - Scops Owl from Blackwater Meadow Marina

Overall, very good! But, web site says that there are 'chairs and stools' provided. They were not supplied, and even after asking the staff, none were on board. Pity, because we left our folding chairs at home after reading the web site info!! We hired this exact same boat 4 years ago; since then, it obviously hasn't seen a paintbrush and now really needs a good smarten up and make over. Apart from that , a very enjoyable holiday!
