“Just what we needed...!!”
Reviewed 28 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I was looking forward for a short break from the busy London: quiet, peaceful, somewhere comfortable where I could enjoy the company of my girlfriend and where we didn't have to worry about anything...and we found it!
Topsy is very well decorated, has all of the comodities of a hotel suite and in a very romantic location. Wonderful woodburner that heats the entire boat, a kitchen with all you need and a lovely bathroom with a jacuzzi.
We had two nice walks to the iconic city of Bath and brought some candles to build a wonderful atmosphere.
I recommend this to anyone that wants to escape and recover physical and mental energies with great conditions where you don't have to worry with anything, except enjoying this wonder.

“Fantastic, exceeded expectations in every way”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Great experience aboard the luxurious Topsy. Fantastic tuition from Mark and Lynda which gave us the confidence to explore the canal. Super food hamper and flowers- countless little extras touches that made our holiday memorable. We greatly appreciated the warm welcome our dog was given including a blanket and dog treats..We would highly recommend this holiday in the great outdoors and hope to return in the future. A big thank you to Mark and Lynda

“Fabulous boat that set the bar very high!”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We decided to rent a canal boat for a midweek trip in Bath. I started looking and came across Topsy. She looked like an amazing boat and didn't disappoint. We arrived and was warmly greeted by Mark and Lynda who eve. Helped us load our bags on to the board. They then spent two hours with us giving a tutorial on how to drive the boat(none of us had ever been on a canal boat) and showed us how to work the locks. Also they had a wonderful welcome basket with cheese, chocolates, bread and some essentials, even some local beer and some bubbly. We then set off on a luxury floating home for 4 days able to go to semington and back to bath. The beds were the softest I've had in any rental or hotel. We tested the jacuzzi and the fun record player with some great vinyl! Just a hint while going down the river, there is some fun art tucked away along the shore. We will absolutely do this again with Topsy. Thank you again!
