What a fabulous weekend getaway! The cleanest and best equipped boat you could wish for. Laurence was the perfect host explaining every detail and even welcoming us with a cup of tea! Truly a gem of a place - we'll be back for sure.
Superb location, the boat was lovely, fitted out so well with everything we needed. We used the bikes for a lovely trip down the river to Maidstone. The main purpose of our stay was for the green man festival. The boat was our alternative to camping and we loved it. The station is just around the corner and in 5 mins you're in Maidstone with all its amenities yet at the Basin you feel a million miles away from the hustle of modern life. We hope to be back again in 2018
We have spend four days in the narrow boat and had a very good time. The boat is a nice and good place to stay and there are many things to do in the naberhood. Laurence is very kind and helpfull.
I surprised my parents to a weekend on this beautiful old boat and I couldn't of picked a better choice. From the moment my dad saw the boat he was smiling like a Cheshire Cat. Its a beautiful well layed out boat with everything you need for a peaceful relaxing holiday. The boat is in its own secluded area away from the hustle and bustle, but just a few minutes walk away is the train station where it's just one stop and your in lively Maidstone town centre. There's also a lovely local pub a few minutes walk away that serves food as well as drink. The owner of the boat Lawrence couldn't do enough for my parents. From the moment I put down a deposit it was plan sailing, he sorts everything out for you and nothing's to much trouble. You also have at your disposal the use of two mountain bikes and two kayaks that come with the price of the boat. Overall a lovely beautiful peaceful place to stay. Highly recommended.
What a beautiful, peaceful and quiet getaway! Seriously thinking of having a winter break here. The owner Laurence is so attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend a long weekend break here. One of the best breaks away I've ever had!
Had a wonderful 3 night break on the Lovely Marianna, everything was perfect, on & off board, really beautiful setting, peaceful, very relaxing, well equipped, very clean & tidy. Laurence the owner was extremely helpful. We will be recommending to friends & family, and definately hope to visit again!
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.
