Stayed for the weekend, the boat is first class. Location is great within walking distance of two pubs which serve food. We made full use of the bikes and Kayaks that come with the boat. Lawrence was the perfect hoast and nothing was to much trouble for him. Added bonus of a hairdryer and toiletries on board means less to pack. Definitely recommend the Marianna to anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax in beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be back.
My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend stay on the Marianna. On arrival the owner Lawrence, met us and showed us around the boat and the private garden area. He couldn't have done more for us, bottle of fizz in the fridge for my birthday and loaned us a chain for our little dog so he could wander around without us worrying. Marianna is gorgeous and absolutely immaculate. Hot showers and cosy bed.
The kayaks were the highlight of the weekend, going up the river which is really pretty with lots of Wildlife.
There were 2 bikes included too. Lovely BBQ area and large wooden shelter if you wanted to be under cover. Would definitely recommend - great weekend, just over too quickly!!
We stayed on the Marianna for 1 night over a weekend, I booked at the last minute in that week mainly because of the pictures/reviews and it did not disappoint!
It was quiet and very peaceful, perfect to just relax in the sunshine with a couple of ciders and let the sun pass over you in the little garden, I had a bbq going very pet friendly, couldn't ask any better for a little romantic getaway.
We took the complimentary kayaks out and took advantage of the bikes for a short ride down the riverside.
The boat was perfect clean and tidy. It has everything you could need.
Laurence was very friendly and welcoming throughout and a pleasure to meet.
We definitely would want to stay here again and would highly recommend!
Our stay on " Marianna " was perfect. The narrowboat is located just off the main river and benefits from having it's own private garden.
The location is beautiful and very peaceful. We took advantage of the complimentary kayaks and bikes, great for exploring the area and making the most of the river.
The narrowboat has everything you need. Patricia and Laurence are very welcoming and friendly. We definitely want to stay here again and would highly recommend it.
Such a great weekend,the boat is lovely, there is everything you need on it & surroundings are so peaceful
Would highly recommend & will go back
The narrow boat was a wonderful experience and it is situated in a magnificent spot at East Farleigh. The lovely people who own the narrow boat were very welcoming and also provided us with bikes and kayaks which were a lovely added bonus. We stayed three days and it was so relaxing we felt like we were there for a week ! There was nothing to find fault with and we were so impressed with everything that we booked again before we left, and we cannot wait to go again !
