Your recent holiday on Lark - Wood Lark from Rugby Wharf

This was the first time we have hired a boat. There were 2 staff at the marina, Ian was very helpful going over aspects of the boat and maintenance checks. The lady (sorry can't remember name) was quite abrupt and questioned our route, something we had submitted a couple of weeks prior. This put us on the spot as we had planned this route. If they felt it was too difficult it could have been questioned prior to our arrival as there had been email correspondence. She also tried to put us off doing the bigger locks making us question or holiday choice and cast a negative start. The boat was clean on the floors, surfaces, bathrooms, and kitchen, however the bedding was stained and the pillow and mattress protectors had not been changed recently. Neither TV picked up a signal the whole time we were away. The mattresses were very uncomfortable, springs springing when you turned over and the pillows lumpy. Overall we had a great time on the canal, enjoyed discovering new places, we had fun operating the locks with no problems. We will holiday on a barge again.
