Excellent service before and during trips. Bookings can be made before your arrival with no deposit , just pay on arrival. The house boat trip was the best for us , highly recommended !

The rooms were clean and well decorated, the bathrooms spotless. We had a wonderful trip, trying fishing, and relaxing with an unlimited supply of alcohol and great company on the beautiful top deck of the boat.... More

The only slightly negative was the... More

We arrived at the booking office to be told there was no fishing today... More
