We hired a boat (Amethyst) from the Anglo Welsh base near Oxford in September. The boat is lovely, very well fitted out and comfortable. The hand-over was efficient friendly and covid safe. We cruised up the Thames to Lechlade, then back down to Wallingford. The river is beautiful and there are plenty of places to moor along the way. Most of the locks are manned by Environment ageny lock keepers all of whom are friendly and helpful. When locks aren't manned, they are quite simple to use and there are instructions on every one (it may be worth looking on Youtube before going to give yourself an idea). It's a great adventurous holiday, in fact so good we have now bought a narrowboat.

This was the third time we have booked a narrowboat with Anglo Welsh and they are still our favourite. We booked a last minute fortnight on Nelson (the first of the new Admiral class boats). Right from phoning to check availability through to picking the boat up from Whixall Marina the customer service was excellent. A special mention goes to Oliver from Whixall who did our handover and is a credit to the company. The boat itself was lovely - well thought out layout, extremely well-equipped and everything worked perfectly. It was also exceptionally clean as all our other Anglo Welsh boats have been. As it was so late in the year we were a little worried the boat might be cold, but how wrong we were - full central heating with domestic size radiators making a very cosy boat. Can't wait to choose our next narrowboat holiday which will obviously be with Anglo Welsh.

Prior to COVID lockdown we had booked a weekend away with friends to celebrate 50 years of friendship. Coming from different parts of England was always a worry that it would have to be cancelled. Thankful this didn’t happen and Anglo Welsh couldn’t have been better. They rang us to arrange a safe pick up time so that there were not many people about. COVID procedures were robust and the staff were all very helpful. The boat was spotlessly clean and we had a wonderful time. Now planning our next Anglo Welsh trip.

Mum had always wanted to holiday on a barge so this year we booked it. Then COVID-19 hit and lockdown, we finally set sail on Aug Bank Holiday. Family of 11 (1 Boat) - I know are we mad? The staff at Trevor were amazing special mention to Sarah who was great taking us through it all and getting us on our way. 20 minutes into the 3 day trip - Mum “this is horrible, why did you let us book” the rest of us getting to grips with the boat and enjoying the views and tranquility. By day 2 mum was just fine as long as we explained everything that was happening and why, boats passing, at the locks, stuck in the shrubs anything & everything. 😂 We all had a really good time including mum, best thing - NO FAMILY DRAMA....it’s too relaxing for drama. Highly recommend
