We hired Angus’s canal barge for 4 nights, 5 days for a 80th birthday present for my mum.
Three of us stayed on the barge, which is of a very, very high standard. We had plenty of room as there is a double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. The barge is very well equipped with everything you need. Beautiful fluffy towels and high end bedding, with the added touch of flowers and a bottle of wine for us to enjoy.
Angus met us at Bathampton and helped us to bring all our gear on board. Angus is extremely friendly and helpful. He spent about 2 and half hours with us, showing us clearly how to handle the barge and the locks and only left us when we felt confident and comfortable.
We had a fantastic time, we were lucky to have sunny weather so could really enjoy the peaceful pace of travelling on the canal.
Everybody is friendly and helpful on the canal.
My mum had a fantastic time and really enjoyed being involved and helping with the locks, she said it was the healthiest she had felt for a long time.
We will be definitely be booking again with Angus as soon as we can.
Highly recommend booking with Angus if you want an enjoyable and comfortable holiday on the canal. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
