Tim”s boat is beautiful!, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is everything on board that you need for a happy relaxing time on the River. We had a glorious 5 days tootling happily along the River Cam and Ouse enjoying the birds, flowers and the beautiful scenery: visited and moored in both Ely and Cambridge overnight and enjoyed great pubs along the way.

A wonderful experience - the boat was well equipped and the location is fantastic. Tim was really helpful and flexible. He provided clear instructions for using the boat and some tips about places to visit. It was a great holiday due to his attention to detail and all the lovely touches on the boat. Highly recommended!!! Our trip coincided with a rowing race which was really fun to watch!

The boat is great to stay in as a family. My children, teenagers, loved it. We never stayed on a boat and we we're amazed by the boat and the location was great. Everything on the boat was nice clean, new and fresh. The bathroom has a great shower and toilet The beds are comfortable and the bedding and duvets all beautiful. Tim makes you welcome as a guest and makes an effort to make sure that you are happy.
