Not the best weather - day one was glorious, day two so so, and day three mainly snowy/windy/rainy - but we expected that for January!
The boat was lovely, we at least had a comfy bed, a roaring fire, and good kitchen and bathroom facilities when we moored up for the night.
Steve the dog had an amazing time, and it was so lovely to be able to bring him with us.
We’ve very limited experience, so the initial info talk before we set off was perfect - we got the hang of it all quickly though.
Would definitely recommend booking this boat - we may well be back ourselves.
Nantwich is an attractive place to start, with access to a good cruising area Adele Marie is an ideal sized boat for couples and families.
We booked a short brake on the Adele Marie of 3 full days and 4 nights. The boat was very comfortable and had great facilities. There was a great shower and toilet with plenty of hot water after a days boating. We have three children aged 5, 8, and 10 Martin provided life jackets for them which were properly sized. At first we were a little concerned that they would find the whole trip boring. The truth was far from it! they loved every minit of it. The wildlife, locks, and jobs to keep the boat ship shape kept them ocupied. Martin was very helpful and made sure we were comfortable with the operations of the boat before he left us. We will be booking again in 2018 and want to lenghten our stay! This is a hoilday which forces you to slow down and stop. Great experiance and would fully recomend it to anyone.
I had the pleasure of having a little trip out on this boat yesterday. Martin was such a lovely man who showed me around and took me out for a ride (even let me steer) I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking of having a holiday or a short break to book through this gentleman. Even if you've never done it before Martin is on hand to show you how it's done beforehand. Highly recommended this service and such a lovely boat with everything you need on board
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.'
