    The boathouse was spotless and was fully equipped. Internet connection was a bit hit and miss and the shower room had nowhere to put anything, a shelf would have been helpful. Overall very good

    The boathouse is in a lovely peaceful setting. The broad is very close by and it all made for a relaxing holiday. Thank you.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very welcoming. Loved the sky light windows! Miss seeing the cattle in the morning! We returned to Lincolnshire well rested & relaxed. Would certainly love to return.
