An interesting cruise round the canals with our skipper Kevin. Very knowledgable and great fun. Was just us and cruised for over an hour. Kevin then walked us to our restaurant. A drink onboard too. Very reasonable price.

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the room, beds and general facilities to a high standard. We had a ground floor room overlooking the canal. Breakfast was individually cooked by Ursula and very tasty, although the 7-9 am slot may be a little early for some travellers. Kevin is an enthusiastic host and always ready to offer assistance....

Clean and spacious room complemented with well sized bathroom. Hosts, Kevin and Ursula are most tentative to all guests requirements. Breakfasts are a delight, especially the fresh fruit salad,with a wonderful view onto the Canal. A absolute must, is to take the river cruises that is run from this B+B. Kevin's knowledge of the Canal is enlightening and one can...
