"An incredibly relaxing holiday in perfect comfort on a beautiful part of the Thames."
From start to finish this turned out to beat many 5 star hotel holidays we had all taken. Firstly the hosts are attentive, lovely and fun. They gave us 2 informed fabulous river trips. Would thoroughly recommend the Henley to Reading stretch. The lovely welcome and the superb, well equipped standard of the boat - just as described on the website, makes it easy to take to the water instantly. Little extras like soap, tea bags and even a dishwasher tablet was the icing. The spaciousness and comfort of the main room in the boat is the surprise. And how can one not enjoy croissants, fresh coffee and the papers on a river, with a bank for a bar/b/q and restaurants to die for. We ate at The Crooked Billet, Phyllis Court and Orwells. All brilliant. All of us slept like babies and felt so relaxed as if we had taken a week off. Our ages ranged from 21 - 86yrs old! And we all LOVED it. This truly is a holiday for everyone. What a gem..... and we all agreed we were thrilled to avoid airports and shall return.
Thank you for your lovely comments - really delighted you had a good stay and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
