We booked a trip on the Lady Lena as a surprise for my father's 80th Birthday. Jenkyn and Helen were perfect hosts, Helen gave us some history and made sure we had everything we needed. Leaving us to enjoy afternoon tea but available if we needed anything. We had champagne when we arrived and Helen made us pots of tea... More

Helen and Jenks, the owners of the boat, were wonderful guides, sharing with us their extensive knowledge of the canal's colourful history and the origins of their gorgeous vessel. The pair are prepared for all weather conditions from parasols in the blinding sun, macs and umbrellas in the rain and hot water bottles and blankets in the chillier months meaning... More

We had a wonderful time on board the Lady Lena. After being collected from Bathampton, we had a delightful trip along the canal towards Freshford. Jenkyn and Helen were fantastic hosts. They were both so accommodating and provided excellent facilities for us to enjoy our afternoon out on the canal. We also had afternoon tea on the return journey, and... More

We escaped the hustle & bustle of London for a day in Bath, and booked a 2 hr trip on the Lady Lena. Quite simply, one of the most memorable afternoons spent in England. A peaceful, elegant but relaxed way to unwind - learn a bit of History and take in some very pretty views. We started with a glass... More

Thank you for your wonderful review, we are very happy that you were able to experience a little of what Bath has to offer. I was such a shame that you were on a flying visit because there was lots more to see. It was fun having you both aboard. More

An amazing experience,what a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Wonderful hosts for whom this really is a labour of love. Something really unique to do for a special occasion or just one very special afternoon out with friends.

My partner surprised me by booking the Lady Lena for a 2 hour trip down the canal. It was an absolutely fantastic experience and very romantic :) We were given a glass of bubbly on board and then a cream tea (the scones are to die for!) Jenkyn and Helen were lovely hosts and gave us 2 options on what... More

We had the most amazing few hours on the boat. Beautiful scenery, beautiful guides and great food and of course, amazing champagne! Helen and Jenkyn were perfect hosts and everything was just perfect. I would recommend this to anyone, for any ocassion. Don't think about it, just book it - you won't regret it. Have fun!

Even though I have walked this stretch of the canal many times, this was such a different way of seeing it. This isn't just a job or business venture for Helen & Jenks: it is a labour of love from the way they rescued the rotting hull to its pristine condition now. Nothing is too much trouble for them, we... More
