"An excellent last minute decision."

After deciding quite late to go on another canal holiday we found Kate boats. Excellent service and value for money. The facilities on board were ample with suitable storage, cooking facilities and equipment provided. Would highly recommend to anybody considering such a holiday. The location of Kate boats both premises allows a relaxing week to undertake the Warwickshire ring.

"Fantasic way to see the UK country side."

We have hired canal boats from Kate Boats for several years and always found them to be friendly and helpful. Boats have been clean, reliable and well maintained. We would recommend this type of holiday for anyone who enjoys a relaxed way of travelling through the UK country side.

"A terrific surprise and one of my favourite experiences in six months of travel"

I've been travelling through Europe and the Middle East for last six months. Some friends in the UK suggested we take a few days on a canal boat. I'd seen information about them here and there but this would be my first experience. We spent three days on a canal boat (four of us) and it was an absolute hoot. I have almost no experience with boats and managed to pull my weight the whole way and it couldn't have been simpler. The folks at Kate Boats were perfectly nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The boat itself was much more comfortable (and clean!) than I'd expected and had all the bits we needed to relax and enjoy the ride for the three days. It's a hugely unique way to see parts of the gorgeous English countryside I would never have seen otherwise. We laughed ourselves silly the whole time. I had an absolute blast. Kate Boats comes highly recommended, certainly for first timers like me. Thanks Kate Boats.

"Fantastic holiday"

I would thoroughly recommend anyone to hire a narrow boat through 'Kate Boats'. The hire price was very good value for money; lower than prices with the 'big names' but we got more for our money with individually designed narrow boats so we could choose the design that best suited us. I was very impressed with the thought with which the boat had been fitted out, with useful cupboards and shelving making the best use of the space and resulting in a great deal more storage space than I would have imagined to be possible. The company 'Kate Boats' is family run so the people you speak to on the phone are full of knowledge about each boat and all are very willing to answer questions. We were blessed with brilliant weather which obviously contributed to our enjoyment. Narrow boating is, by its nature, a very active holiday and by choosing to do the Ring we gave ourselves a challenge. There are however a number of route options from the two 'Kate Boats' bases. these vary in length and the number of locks so the route can be chosen according to the desire for a more active or mover leisurely holiday. There are many canal-side pubs and other eating places, but we chose to cook on the boat which was extremely well-equipped for doing so. The beds were comfortable and the settee cum bed was very quick and simple to convert.

"It all ran like clockwork."

Had a lovely time. Was good to see new stuff like the Foxton flight and go up the Watford staircase locks. Plenty of calm criusing in between. Well designed and maintained boat. the fuel-inclusive price saves any worry about how much it will cost when you get back to base.
