Fantastic day out and amazing customer service! We had a fantastic day out with friends and our small children. Great to see the river soar from all angles and the children especially enjoyed learning how to operate the locks. The boat itself was great, very clean and tidy and well equipped with a camping stove and kettle, perfect for making a cuppa to go with our picnic we had packed. Routes north or south both have conveniently placed pubs which are also great for a pit stop. We couldn’t fault the team at Sileby Boatyard, the customer set was great, we had very clear instructions on all aspects of operating the boat and we were even given a demonstration through the first lock!
