Here are some testimonials from 2016 and 2017

Alex, Pauline,Brenda and James

Had another fab week, weatherwise the week went from one extreme to other. Starting with storm brian and finishing with fine and sunny days and burning sunsets.

Fishing was ok but no pike this year. The Boathouse was as warm and homely as normal. Roll on 2018.

Oh Dear here we go again- last day and having to say goodbye to this beautiful Boathouse. 2007 was our first year- so its been a long time! at least were safe in the knowledge that we will be back next year. We love this place, just perfect

Lyndsey and Peter

Our second holiday at the Boathouse and just as lovely as the first! Greatly appreciated the use of the sun loungers an added bonus. Dissapointed we didnt see a kingfisher this time, but we greatly enjoyed seeing the baby grebe learning to fish and a flock of geese landing on the broad. Plenty of R and R with good weather to boot. Thankyou.

TThis our third trip to the Boathouse in so many years and its been utterly fantastic again!! Sailed lots fishing (well over 30 fish caught),

swim oon a  dial basis and never tired of sitting on the balcony lapping up the georgeous view. Rowing boats just the best for exploring, we

Thank you for a fabulous holiday, our first at the Boathouse. We have fallen in love with the cottage and its gorgeous  view-brought back happy memories of our ‘cottage exploits’ in Canada when our children were young. We shall be definitely booking again and hope to bring our grandchildren next time to enjoy the whole experience. It was nice to meet you Steve, we enjoyed the chat.
