We decided to go away with 2 other couples for a long weekend and contacted Karen at Canal Cruising for advice - we have been on a few of the boats now and know that the standard is consistent and good.
We took Elinor which is an 8 berth and gave us even more room! There was plenty of space for us and for our dog! We had such a great time - stopped off at the recommended places for food and drink (!). We have never had a problem with any of the boats but if you were to run into trouble, Peter will always come and find you to sort out the problem.
The boat was spotless as usual with all the necessary kitchen equipment for cooking your own meals - it really is good fun and if you've never done you should definitely give it a try. It doesn't matter if it isn't hot - although fabulous if it is -because the boats are so cosy and comfortable.
Our next trip will be in the Autumn and we're looking forward to it - can't recommend Canal Cruising highly enough. Do it!! Plus
