Our first experience on a narrow boat has been excellent and we will definitely book again. Loved doing the locks, which are great exercise! Naomi and John were very helpful getting us on board and making sure we had everything we needed….. This trip gave my father in law a new lease of life!!! Thankyou

Sophie, Maya, Alex and Will, March 2017

Our first holiday together and it was a total adventure from start to finish. Wonderful days spent on the canal tackling locks and swing bridges. Very comfy beds and toasty with the radiators and wood burner.
Maria and Simon, February 2017

Fabulous time, very frosty weather but we were snug and warm. What a great way to get away from it all. We loved it!

Lovely, unique boat .. best boat we’ve been on by far. Our favourite place was Claverton weir, mooring up and swimming in beautiful surroundings. We will be back.
Esme & Gabriel, July 2016

Lovely boat, great weather, fab restaurants e.g. The Barge which everyone enjoyed. This was Manjla’s first trip out of India and she will be back. It was a useful introduction to boating to help us decide if in future years if we can live on a boat in India.
Manjla & Stephen, July 2016

We have hired Narrow boats in the past from big companies and they have never been as comfortable or as stylish as this delightful boat. Well done!
Tony & Mary Brown, July 2016

Wonderfully relaxing weekend. Very comfortable. Ducks all very well fed! Would love to come back again.
Helen, Jess, Boo & Sandy Clark. June, 2016

Our son and daughter in law took us on Narrow Escape for our 50th Anniversary. We spent our honeymoon on the Oxford canal 50 years ago, what a change in all the boats, Narrow Escape is a magnificent boat and so comfortable, we had a wonderful time.
Jocelyn & Michael Williams, June 2016

We spent a very chilled long weekend aboard Narrow Escape heading towards Devizes, the boat was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Deciding to have a weekend off cooking we ate some great food on our journey, can recommend fish and chips in Bradford on Avon, lunch at the Barge Inn and Sunday roast at the Somerset arms. 
Rosy and Bobbie, Reading, June 2016

Just had a wonderful relaxing weekend cruising the beautiful K&A on ‘Narrow Escape’. Beds and living accommodation are extremely comfortable – it was a miniature home from home – far superior to previous standards we have had on a narrow boat. Looking forward to our next trip on her one day! 
Amanda & Marcus Correia & family, June 2016

A great adventure, once we got used to the steering all went well – great accommodation and facilities. Naomi and Mash were fantastic owners, they are thoroughly recommended.
Rob Wyborn, May 2016

What a great way to spend a few days, seeing parts of the Country not normally seen, so peaceful and relaxing and some great pubs on the way, thank you.
Ray & Anastasia Swales, Johannesburg, SA, May 2016

A brilliant weekend, Mash and Naomi were so helpful. As novices, we were pleased how quickly we got to grips with everything, we’ll be back.
Kris Fox & Family, May 2016

Thanks for sharing this gem of a boat and for being great hosts – we loved it!
Faye & Andy Stewart, March 2016

Had a fantastic family holiday for a week on board Narrow Escape, super comfortable living space, wood burner and great kitchen. We headed towards Devizes and did the locks which was a challenge but very satisfying, we celebrated by having a few drinks at The Black Swan, such a great pub. To round it all off the weather was great too!
