We have just come back from a week away on Stephen's canal boat with our three teenage sons... and to our surprise everyone got something from it, whether bantering with lock keepers, swimming, fishing, or just looking out at the river and bird watching. Stephen (the owner) is really helpful. And we really enjoyed meeting and chatting to other boat people... all of whom were so friendly. We are really looking forward to another trip next year!

We had a wonderful few days on the river Thames in Barking Mad2. Beautiful area to explore, pretty villages and interesting walks, as well as river swims and wildlife to enjoy. Plus a friendly helpful owner in Stephen

We hired Barking Mad II for a weekend, to celebrate our friend's 30th birthday. Safe to say we had the best time! The boat was well equipped, and Stephen was really helpful with suggesting a route (which was beautiful) and places to stop. He was also on hand to answer any questions we had whilst away. Would definitely recommend!

What a great experience! We hired Barking Mad II for a long weekend. Stephen was excellent with booking process , communication and all around support. Narrow boat was in excellent condition with everything you need for comfortable and happy stay. We had very informative and detail welcome. We were given great recommendations where to go and what to see. We had amazing 4 days. We would defiantly recommend to hire and enjoy it.
