Fantastic time on the good ship bosworth this weekend just gone. Staff were friendly and helpful and the boat was the best quality we've come across in over ten years. Ideal for checking out places like Coventry and rugby. Well worth the money.

From the first enquiry to handing the boat back, we had first class service. Staff were helpful, nothing too much trouble. Impressed with how well equipped the boat was, made for a lovely day out for our family visiting from Australia.

We collected the narrow boat on Friday for a one week trip. We travelled along the Ashby, Coventry, Oxford and the Grand Union Canals. Mixed weather but a great trip.
