“Journey by boat!!! Lovely!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Taking a boat on hire, one boat 6 person in 1 hour with 30 pounds is really a worth of journey to float in a lake which is really beautiful and pleasure to relax and take the advantage of summer weather in UK!

Thank you so much for your lovely review of our self-drive boats. Motor boats & rowing boats are available to hire daily in our Summer Season. As Kenneth Grahame wrote in The Wind in the Willows “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

“Lovely way to get around”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

The boats are spacious, comfortable, and offer the most spectacular views. It certainly helped that the weather was glorious on the day we travelled! No matter where you sit you will benefit from the views. The boats have toilet facilities, a bar, a tea shop, and you can also buy gifts and souvinirs on board. I would recommend this to any age group.

“Very good”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Good value for money trips going in and out all day at regular intervals we also got money knocked off the boat trip from parking in their carpark which is an added bonus
