I just wanted to thank you for the lovely trip we had on Saturday to celebrate Chris's 70th birthday. It was a really special day and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We really enjoyed the champagne and your homemade cream teas and your personal touch. Thank you we can highly recommend you x

What a wonderful two hours spent sailing along the peaceful canal. As we boarded this little boat, we were handed a glass of champagne and all that was left was for our party of 11 ladies to sit, back and enjoy this wonderful experience. I cannot recommend this trip enough. We were blessed with a lovely sunny afternoon but don't... More

I booked this boat as a surprise for a Bride to be. This boat is Stunning and Helen and Jenk couldn't do enough for us. 10 of us arrived to a wonderful welcome and to a most stunning and comfortable boat. We were then offered our glass of champagne which I can honestly say was beautiful and the best part... More

I booked the beautiful "Lady Lena" for a 3 hour cruise for my Mum and I. We embarked the vessel in Bath and met Jenkyn and Helen, who were perfect hosts. The trip was a surprise for my Mum, so once aboard we were offered a refreshing glass of champagne, which was delightful. It was a perfect 3 hours on... More

I booked the Lady Lena for my mother's 70th birthday which was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Helen and Jenks are so friendly and helpful, they could not have done more for us! The boat is simply beautiful. We were picked up from Bathampton and taken out towards the Viaduct on a two hour relaxing trip. We were... More

We treated ourselves to a champagne picnic and private 2 hour tour of the canal on the Lady Lena during our trip to Bath. Our hosts, Jenks and Helen, were exceedingly friendly and charming. The boat is STUNNING, lovingly restored and the history of it's origins and restoration are fascinating. As we're vegan, we brought our own picnic (easy to... More

This is a very special boat with very special hosts. We asked for warm sunshine - and they provided it, along with a scenic peaceful ride along the canal. Helen's scones are amazing and we enjoyed them with tea as we cruised along. She even provided one for feeding the swans. We learned a lot about the history of this... More

I booked the Lady Lena for 12th September 2014 to propose to my girlfriend. Whilst she knew that we were going to get engaged that day she had no idea where or how.
