This was a perfect way to celebrate our friend's birthday. We took our own (gourmet) picnic but I believe it is possible to purchase food via the Knills. Helen had beautiful china and glass ware to hand, and we enjoyed our lazy day, moving at a gentle rate along the canal until we found a lovely place to stop at... More

I had booked this trip as a treat for my husband on our wedding anniversary, as he loves boats and canals and this combined the two beautifully! Our host Jenkyn and his two helpers, Julia and Kamil, were so attentive and welcoming. On boarding this lovingly restored vessel, we were settled into the comfy cushions sipping our champagne as the... More

My wife and I went on the lovely Lady Lena boat today, and we were very impressed with the style of the boat and the comfort on board. Champagne was promptly served, and the noiseless boat floated down the canal in beautiful sunshine. It was so peaceful and romantic- onlookers on the canal looked envious! After an hour cream tea...

Wonderful way to experience Bath. Tranquil, relaxing, peaceful journey. Fabulously restored boat, great hospitality and the cream teas are amazing. Will definitely be retiring. A 'must do' if travelling to Bath .

A truly memorable birthday experience on a beautiful summer's evening. The Lady Lena is a lovingly restored electric Victorian pleasure boat plying the waters around Bath. Within minutes of boarding we were gliding off down the Kennet & Avon, a glass of champagne in our hands, relaxed on comfy cushions as Bath drifted by. Wonderful attention to detail, all mod...

I had booked the trip based on the name of the boat and the reviews and was very happy i did! My partner was overwhelmed by the comfort, hospitality, and scenery as we quietly sailed through the canals. The hosts are wonderful and full of knowledge. The boat is a classic, electric driven so very quiet, and has us hooked... More

The moment we stepped onto this beautiful vessel we were treated like royalty; Jenkyn and Helen are a fantastic team who give you second to none hospitality. Helen's knowledge of the Avon canal is superb, she gives you little nuggets of info whilst leaving you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We brought our own picnic food which works great, as...

What a wonderful two hours spent sailing along the peaceful canal with my wife. As we boarded this Lady Lena, we were handed a glass of champagne and told a little about the history of the vessel, it was then time to sit, back and enjoy this wonderful experience. I cannot recommend this trip enough. With a rain filled morning... More

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
