“Fantastic experience on the unique Wey navigation”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2017

After a helpful boat navigation and lock tutorial (we were complete novices!) from Ray and Julie, our crew of two pootled off for our 4 day break to experience the delights of this beautiful stretch of water. After some minor navigating difficulties (a small matter of a grounding!) plus a little more patient telephone coaching from Ray, we became accustomed to the benefits of the very helpful bow thrusters. The boat itself was spotlessly clean and was beautifully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Who knew you could fit so much in a small space, and certainly more storage than I was expecting. A fascinating, tranquil few days with the ever changing scenery being a feast for the eyes, we have never seen so many dragonflies. During our short break the weather was fantastic (if a little too hot for all that physical lock work!) and we got up to Coxes Lock at Addlestone, then returned and travelled to just north of Godalming before returning Stepping Stones to its home mooring. We particularly enjoyed stopping on Guildford Meadows one evening, walking across the Ferry Bridge and having a yummy pizza at the Ship Inn at St Catherines after working up a major appetite during the day. It's funny how you get a totally different perspective on a town when travelling by water, quite fascinating. Anyway, it's not very often you finish a holiday with such a sense of exhilaration and achievement, so it will last long in our memories. I would thoroughly recommend Stepping Stones for a really uniqueholiday, and also thank Ray and Julie for sharing their lovely boat with us.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for sharing your experience. We are very fortunate to be based on such a lovely waterway and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay on Stepping Stones - thank you for the great compliments. Best regards, Julie and Ray

“A gentle adventure on the Wey”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2017

We really enjoyed our short break aboard Stepping Stones. It was our first canal boat holiday and were glad that owners Ray and Julie showed us the ropes and took us through the first lock. The boat was very comfortable and well equipped for the four of us. There was plenty to keep the kids (aged 9 and 12) busy working the locks and everyone we met was friendly and full of helpful advice for us novices. We had great weather, the ever changing scenery was beautiful (and/or interesting) and the wildlife was fantastic. We would throughly recommend this holiday to anyone who is looking for a gentle adventure!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review, it is great to know that your first introduction to narrowboating was a success. Best regards, Julie and Ray.

“Sublime - even for the ultimate novice!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2016

From the moment you are met by the owners, Julie and Ray, to the first lesson, to the moment you first "fly solo", to thinking, "I can do this!", to parallel parking for the first time and taking in the utter beauty of the landscape, this will be a holiday you will not forget! It is absolutely idyllic! Plentiful pubs, prosecco as you cruise, parking up for the evening and catching a few decent perch before falling asleep in the most comfortable beds ever! Seriously, this is the real deal! My friend and I (yes, a crew of just 2 - easy) agreed that each month of the year would have it's own attributes. We travelled in August but can easily envisage Christmas aboard or in early Spring. Fear not the locks. As the first day dawned and the full realisation that we were about to go up and down locks set in, we were trepidatious, it has to be said. However, in a nutshell: piece o' cake. Think it through, take it slowly and it'll soon be second nature. Nothing is left uncovered on-board - I can't think of a single utensil or device that you'd need to take (apart from an iPhone 6 adapter for the docking station), Final note for Julie and Ray - thank you both so much for the opportunity, the occasional 'phone call and for building our confidence so casually that we could handle this 62ft beauty. Cannot wait to see you both again. Mark and Kathy

Owner's reply: Dear Mark and Kathy, thank you very much for a great review, we are so pleased that your first narrowboat holiday was such a success. We would love to see you both again and we will be purchasing an iPhone 6 adaptor for the docking station! Best regards, Julie and Ray

“Well equipped and excellently prepared”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

Well equipped and excellently prepared for our stay. The bathroom, kitchen and bedroom were all a real pleasure to use. Absolutely everything we could need was provided. Perfect telephone assistance from Ray to get over our grounding on day one. Other than that the week was perfect (including the weather). Will definitely want to recommend her to others.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments, we are so pleased your first (of many hopefully!) narrowboat experience was successful. Hope to see you again, Julie and Ray
