Captain Bev at the helm, pens poised ready to write as the Peccadillo chugged gracefully along carving a dark wedge into the water's skin. Memories that never fade. Thank you Bev for creating the perfect medium to excite the imagination.

It's so unusual to find something that a family of all ages can enjoy, the grandchildren loved it, it's great having your own space for the trip on the canal

Such a great, relaxing way to travel, really got to see the canal and countryside. Bev is a great host, really knowledgeable about the waterways and entertaining with it, and Cathy's cakes are not to be missed. All in all a fantastic day out.

Our group has met a number of times on the barge, its always a magical evening - a warm fire glowing, the kettle on, seeing the starts and sharing in a cosy and beautiful space. I highly recommend booking the barge for a unique experience
