Just returned from a week long trip on Countrywide Cruisers Sir Melleaus with Mum, Dad and two sons on board.
Good clean boat with all the home comforts you would need on a canal boat holiday.
Excellent orientation by Cliff. Even though we had done canal boating before managed to pitch the handover as if it were a refresher. The boat has a traditional stern which is OK for two but a bit cramped for any more to stand at the back.
Locks were a doddle, not much traffic considering this was the 1st week of the school hoildays.
Many comments from other established boaters saying that they like Countrywide as the boats are always well turned out and they are a well run family owned business rather than a big multi depot affair.
Pubs all along the canal with good places to stop and tie up overnight. The Anchor is worth a visit for a back in time experience, but only Wadsworth 6X is available....the pub has a nice garden.
We had one problem with the boat which was resolved with William responding to our phone call and him being with us within an hour. Thanks William.
Will we go back to Countrywide.....you bet!!!
