We had a fabulous week recently on a canal boat holiday. The staff at Union Wharf were very helpful and thorough in their training, although we have done this type of holiday before so weren't novices.The boat was very clean & tidy with all the necessary bedding, towels & kitchen utensils on board.It was a very relaxing holiday,& the best sleep I've had for ages. The beds were comfy and having central heating was great as it did get cold at night . I did a shop before we set off as it was limited for places to get food along our route. We negotiated Foxton Locks with help from the lock keeper and visitors who like to help with the lock gates.It is a very relaxing and peaceful holiday, really making you slow down and unwind from the daily stresses of everyday life. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the lovely countryside and wants to get away from it all, including Wi Fi and TV. Take some DVD's to watch as the signal is poor in some parts. Even my teenage son enjoyed it so it must have been good!!

Dear Booking Staff, thank you for all your help in getting me a fantastic deal, an excellent holiday, in a boat that was new with everything one would need, and with the help of helpful staff at the boat yard.

HI Rosemary You are a STAR! I have to say (and I don't say this often), you have been an absolute saviour, your company, and you on their behalf, made it all very easy to explore what was available, and find a holiday that fitted exactly what we were looking for. We love your cruising notes, and you have been unfailingly helpful and knowledgeable throughout, even down to comparing boat sizes, which was very useful in the end. There are very few companies that can boast this level of customer service these days. I am impressed.

Thanks for a very enjoyable cruise on your narrow boat Chapman's Rusty. These two Americans and our British friend thoroughly enjoyed the experience of boating to Bath on the Kennet and Avon this past October. The boat was well appointed and the staff at Hilperton were just great.

Blackwater Meadow

Recently we rented a narrow boat from your company for the 3 day Llangollen canal trip. I just wanted to say a big thank you for an extraordinary adventure. I've done it all.. scuba diving, hang gliding, gliders, flying, skiing, long distance motorcycling, zip line... you name it. At the end of the day, our trip to Llangollen and return was one of the most spectacular adventures of my life.

Pulling out of Hilperton

What a lovely holiday we've just had! We'd never thought about going on a canal boat before, but some friends of ours had done it and said how much they had enjoyed it. I'm glad we took their advice and tried it. We'll certainly be going again, very soon.

"I can't say enough good things about UK Canal Boating"

Hello, I am writing to give a big thank you for all your help in arranging a short weekend break for me and 4 mates. The staff at Worcester marina were very helpful genuine and polite. The boat Wisp of the Water was fantastic. As we are all rugby players we were hesitant about the size of the 6 berth. There was no need as there was ample room. The boat was equipped with all mod cons which was great. We had plenty of storage space for luggage/beer.

I can't say enough good things about UK Canal boating. The customer service was above and beyond what i expect.

Many thanks, Mr Moorhouse - A UK Canal Boat Holidays Customer.
