This was our first narrowboat holiday at all. We were really surprised about the perfect and friendly communication to Anderson. Our boat (Tana Fjord) was in a perfect condition, well maintenanced and perfectly equipped. When we first saw it, we were really astonished how nice and clean it was outside and inside. We had a huge and well equipped kitchen, with really everything you need. A nice welcome surprise was waiting for us :-) everything was totally clean and in new condition.
On our arrival we were shown everthing we had to know about handling the boat and the locks, so we could start immediately to our lovely one-week holiday.
We did the Llangollen Canal which is very beautiful in scenery, but quite narrow at the end. So we were glad to be able to start in Middlewich where the canal is wide enough for beginners. When the weather got "British" for 1 day, we could even heat up the boat to make it cosier, while delicious baked potatoes were getting ready in our well-sized gas oven.
Having seen so many boats within this week, we can again confirm that the Anderson boats are in best condition, and not getting old as other boats on the canal seemed to be. The reason is probably because Anderson is a family-owned company who is buidling their boats on their own. It seems to be more than just a business for them. We had 7 wonderful days with nothing missing and can warmly recommend narrowboat holidays with Anderson and hope that in future more Germans will be able to explore this beautiful kind of houseboat holidays.
