We just had our second weekend break on Martin's wonderful Adele Marie with our family and Dee, our dog..
It was great. The boat was very well fitted out, beds very comfy, and the boat ran perfectly. The canals were great, the locks were fun - and sociable. We found some nice waterside pubs.
Nantwich is an ideal start point with lots of different directions to choose from.
Martin was extremely helpful and professional in his briefings and even met us to help bring his boat back to the mooring.
We would definitely recommend this experience and we look forward to our next trip on Adele Marie..
We had a briilaint week aboard the Adele Marie the boat was fantastic, we had brilliant instructions when we arrived and set off very confidently. We had a lovely welcome box on board... would definitely recommend
‘We have used floating dreams before and this was a return trip. The boat has all you need for a comfortable 12/14day break. The new sofa is a welcome addition following a day stood up and doing locks. Martin is helpful and friendly, explaining all you need to know before embarking on your holiday. We had a few electrical issues during our break but Martin was always on the end of the phone, and quickly arranged a marine engineer to meet us and rectify the problem. The customer service from this small company is outstanding and would teach many larger firms a thing or too in this regard. Would I use floating dreams again. Yes. There are still many routes to explore in this wonderful area of the UK.'
Great weekend with the family. Weather perfect. With the comfort and easy handling of the Adele Marie we had the most enjoyable weekend.
A fantastic boat hired to us by really great people, we were confident of support if required and the training/handover was excellent. The Llangollen Canal has a lot to offer, with both the fabulous wildlife and that chap Telford knew a thing or two! The aqueducts and tunnels did not disappoint. We had just the most relaxed and wonderful time.
Narrow boats are a holiday in themselves. There is always lots to do on the boat with piloting, mooring, locks and pubs. It is a great way to spend a holiday in the outdoors but still with plenty of luxury. Adele Marie had all that you would want. Excellent galley, shower and toilet, comfortable beds, television and central heating as well as the chance to see the countryside at a slow pace and lots of interesting stuff on the way.
