We visited with family. Charming lady owner, Karen, was very accommodating and helpful. A really lovely afternoon spent walking the tow path alongside the children kayaking. Happy times!

Had a fantastic week aboard the Teasal narrow boat. The narrow boat was very clean and well equipped, with lovely small personal touches. The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave their time explaining various things regarding the boat and places to stop and things to see along the way. They were also on the other end of the phone when we had any queries. We had a very peaceful week along the canal. Very picturesque and plenty of wildlife along the, including swans with their babies, ducks, herons and more. Highly recommend the narrow boat and the company

Highly recommend pre-booking the electric motor boat if you want to sit back and enjoy more of the canal! Don’t get me wrong, the row boats are great, but if it’s just one rowing then that can be enough for an hour. The boat was easy to use and even the children had a go. We only booked an hour, but it was worth it and will book for two hours next time as you can go quite far out. Great staff, easy to book and very helpful. You won’t be disappointed!

Very therapeutic couple of hours spent on the canal today thanks to this company. Reasonably priced hire for a single kayak and I was intrigued how little craft I encountered by travelling to the right. The website is good, providing information needed in this current situation. This is a popular place on a sunny day but, as today was overcast, I barely had to queue and the system was efficient. Highly recommended for a bit of fun or to chill out.
