Wow! We are a family of four plus a wee dog. We hired the blue boat Mirlee for the day, 10am to 6pm. Firstly the staff are super friendly. They were very welcoming, gave a great common sense safety advice and instructions. Then we headed off for about 1.5 hours to a country park/gardens/cafe had an great time and headed back. Highly recommended! The kids loved it, even in the rain! Will definitely go again!

Couldn't fault the whole experience. Easy to book,Lucien was friendly and relaxed when we arrived.he took us through the operation of the boat in an easy to understand manner. Safety briefing and we were off. Very enjoyable experience,stopped of a couple of times for food and drink,very relaxing experience. Kettle and cups all provided for a brew on a cold day. I highly recommend this company.

Had a great day on board the Ruston Narrowboat. 9 of us on board. Plus a dog. Celebrating hubby’s birthday. Plenty of space for us all. Spent the day cruising the Leeds/Liverpool canal. Took a picnic to eat on the boat. We did stop off at Fredricks Ice Cream Parlour for a little treat though. Fab way to spend the day. Nice chilled day and we had great weather which was a bonus. We’ll defo be booking again.

Received a friendly greeting on our arrival and introduction to the boat. There was sufficient room, booth outside and inside for our party of 6 to sit with a good selection of crockery and glasses on board to suit most needs for refreshments ( bring your own ). An excellent opportunity for relaxation on a pleasant stretch of canal.

Absolutely wonderful day out. Lucian was great, taught us the ins and outs in a brief but very thorough how to. The boat itself was clean, tidy and well looked after. Our trip down the canal was really enjoyable, and we even had a few bevies on our journey. The people we met along the canal were pleasant and courteous, and I can safely say we will be coming back again. Can’t fault the experience and it’s definitely one for doing again. Thanks Lucian, you were great!
