The Somerset region

The historic World Heritage City of Bath is a stunning place for a holiday, steeped in history, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Topsy is moored in Bath marina, on the Kennet and Avon Canal. which is just over a mile from Bath City Centre and about 10 miles from Bristol.

You could drop into town for a visit to the Romans Baths opt for BathThermal spa, the new Spa overlooking Bath's magnificent Abbey. You can float in the naturally warm water and watch the sun go down.

On the boat you can choose to stay in the marina and sight see around the area or cruise the Kennet and Avon, moving off from the marina onto the river and up on the canal through the picturesque city centre and out the other side into the pretty and ever changing countryside, through the market towns and villages along the canal banks, Bathampton, Bradford on Avon, Devizes.

Or choose a very different place to stay, on the water in a luxurious boat for your self catering break.

Bath hosts some great festivals throughout the year, with the Fashion Fair at the beginning of May, followed by the International Music Fair, then the Literary Festival. Bristol too is full of festivals, with the Festival of the Sea, The Harbour Festival, the Balloon Festival. It's a hive of activity.

It's a great part of England to explore.

"Absolutely wonderful!"

What a wonderful way to spend a few days relaxing. The boat was absolutely beautiful and everything had been thought of to the smallest details to make our stay comfortable. The fact that we had WIFI on board too was a real unexpected bonus. The area is stunning and the slow pace of life on the canal is a very welcome change! Mark was a wonderful host. So charming and helpful in every way. He made the hand over of the boat so easy. Thoroughly recommend a holiday on lovely Topsy. We'll be back soon too. Thanks Mark for a lovely time.

"beautiful boat in a wonderful location"

We have just returned from a 3 day rental on Topsy with 2 of our friends . Lynda and mark were lovely and informative prior to our setting off. The boat is beautiful and has everything you would need for a wonderful vacation including a fantastic collection of movies and records. The beds were fantastically comfortable as was the bedding. Thank you Lynda and mark for the wonderful food hamper we received onboard. The scenery along the bath and avon canal was superb and we had a couple of great meals at the boat inn (just a 3 minute walk from the boat mooring). Just be prepared for the locks as some can be quite heavy, but they were worth doing to get on the canal past Widcombe when you get into the countryside as the scenery is stunning from the water.

"Wonderful 4 days on Topsy"

We had a great trip on Topsy. Mark and Lynda couldnt have been more helpful in the pre-trip briefing and the barge was in beautiful condition. The trip up the canal via Bradford upon Avon was delightful, and the sedate pace along with the luxury of the barge, made it a wonderful experience. The kids all loved the locks and the swing bridges and the great weather was the icing on the cake. Many thanks.

"Top marks for Topsy!"

Topsy offers a floating boutique experience and the owners have created a chic quality service with many splendid touches. We had envious looks from other canal users and no shortage of people who wanted to know more about Topsy. Our route took us out from historic Bath on the River Avon and then on to the K&A Canal, a quintessential tranquil part of English countryside, with great places to stop. We took family for the first part of the trip including Luke, our 8 year old grandson, who took to the experience like a duck to water. Topsy has on board entertainment to cater for all ages and we were never short of things to do. We were blessed with Spring sunshine but you could still really enjoy Topsy whatever the weather.

"40th Birthday Weekend"

Excellent time had by all. The boat was great...well kitted out and in a beautiful spot. I would definitely think about booking again. Cosy, with a wealth of records, films, and near to Bath town centre. Thanks for the breakfast basket - spot on!

"Wonderful luxurious break on a beautiful boat"

I cannot recommend Topsy and Lazy Daze Cruises enough! We spent two days on the boat which was fully equipped with everything you could need. It's warm and cosy with a coal fire and comfy furniture. The boat was lovely inside and so spacious and was also spotlessly clean. Our host made us feel really welcome and was happy for us to take over the steering etc and we quickly mastered the locks! The scenery is wonderful in this area and we met lots of friendly ducks and swans! I will be booking to come back with my family next year.

"Topsy is tops!"

What a lovely week! First, the scenery between Bath and Foxhangers is so beautiful that you cannot help but feel peaceful. Second, the fun of operating the locks encourages a camaraderie with fellow canal boaters and passers by who are happy to help out with gates etc. Third, we found a great pub on each evening so enjoyed som e chat with locals and some great food. Finally, and most importantly, what a wonderful boat Topsy is! She is so well equipped and furnished that it really was like a home from home. I was slightly nervous about the width but she handled beautifully and looked after us so well that we really felt that we had enjoyed a five star without any compromises. Thank you Topsy, Mark and Lynda, we hope to see you again soon!

"Totally exceeded my expectations!"

We stayed the weekend aboard Topsy and absolutely could not fault it! Upon arrival it was clear that Lynda really does think of everything. The extra touches and details make an already amazing boat truly luxurious. On Sunday morning we enjoyed a fabulous cruise with Lynda and Mark, we also helped to open the locks and steer the boat which was great fun! If you don't fancy cooking, we'd also recommend getting take away from The Desh (Indian) which was a 2 minute drive for collection and very delicious! Already trying to think of an excuse to head back! Thank you Lynda and Mark.

"Absolutely fantastic boat experience!"

I organised the Topsy boat for my boyfriend's 30th birthday with a group of his friends. I was a bit nervous about booking somewhere I'd never been but I needn't of worried as from the beginning the experience was fantastic. Lynda and Mark welcomed us on to the boat and straight away you could tell it was a special boat, very clean and luxurious. They had left a lovely hamper with fizz and birthday cake in! There was also orange juice and milk in the fridge. We enjoyed all listening to the records on the boat and we loved the disco Lighting that you can use! The next day as a treat Lynda and Mark took us out on a boat ride along the river which was fantastic. Overall our experience was excellent on a The Topsy boat and I would definitely recommend it as a different yet luxurious break. Thank you

"A Beautiful Boat - both kids and adults loved it"

Topsy is a beautiful boat. A bit of luxury on a very pretty section on river and canal in Bath. We were 4 adults 2 children and 2 babies so it was a bit of a squeeze but there was enough room for all of us. We made good use of the jacuzzi Bath and the wood burning stove which made it even cosier. The kids loved it, especially the little extras like the box of duck food which the owners Mark and Linda had left for us. They were great hosts and gave us a really good training session before we set sail. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would love to do it again. Highly recommend Topsy!
