Just had an amazing week discovering the delights of Windsor , Marlow and Henley using the Sancerre as our transport and accommodation . The boat is superbly equipped , spotlessly clean and in excellent repair . Peter handed the boat over to us after a short lesson , and was helpful and reassuring as he sent us on our way . He communicated with us promptly during the week and advised on moorings etc I can’t recommend Peter and Calmer Cruising highly enough Many Thanks

I have hired many boats for many holidays,and I have to say this is the best equipped and most luxurious boat I have hired. The owners have thought of everything, it is perfect. Just came back from a week on the Thames and thoroughly enjoyed it. You will not be disappointed with this boat!! Everything is included, just great.

The Sancerre is a very well equipped and comfortable "barge" located on the Thames. Owned and managed by David, the whole experience of booking, taking possession of the boat, training and being rescued when we had a small engine glitch was 100% professional. The 7 days on board were relaxing and fun and handling the big boat was easier than we imagined. The sights we saw were charming from magnificent homes, run down shacks, posh boats, run-down canal boats, to recreational swimmers, swimmers in training, getting caught up in a regatta, watching rowers training, visiting quaint waterfront pubs, meeting friendly and informative locks-keepers and then just the relaxing aspect of sitting basking in the sun as we chugged up river was wonderful. The boat is perfect for 2 couples.- we all loved it, highly recommend it and would do the trip again.

Yet another lovely weekend aboard David’s lovely boat. Third year running and no change in the beautiful condition and quality standard of the boat. David was the perfect host again, welcoming us warmly as always. Great location with beautiful scenery and a lovely tranquil river to spend a leisurely relaxed weekend, greatly helped by the glorious weather we had. As always highly recommended for couples, groups or families as the boat is spacious, easy to operate and great to be on.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long cruise along the Thames on the wide beam narrow boat 'Sancerre'! This is the best way to enjoy a leisurely tour of the Thames waterways. Communication with David was very good, and he gave us good and clear instructions before we set off on our own travelling to Windsor, then west to Reading, and back to Bisham. October weather was ideal, and the boat well equipped and very comfortable for 3 Aussie travellers. Thank you David, do hope we can repeat the journey in a few years time.
