Very cozy and romantic. We have had a fantastic experience that even the rain has not been able to ruin a little. Docking and sleeping on the same pier of Gloucester, the views, ducks and swans, the peace and relaxation of the journey, the racking of the bridges, the kindness of the owners, the cozy of the interior.... to repeat without a doubt. Thank you.
Hired the boat for my husbands birthday - a great day out and such fun . We took lunch with us and had a lovely relaxed day . Plenty of time to wander the canal . Staff were very helpful and friendly - highly recommend
Great day out .
