    Lovely location with a little shop and pub on the door step. Fabulous canal side walks with quaint towns within easy driving distance. Would definitely go again.

    Good location, cottage is in need of updating. Family room is pretty cold. Linen wasn't overly clean. Wifi is very poor. Couldn't get the bottom oven, extractor fan to work. Strange smell on the ground floor. No lock on bathroom.

    Lovely location,would recommend doing the hire a barge for a day ,but really you’d be better off hiring a barge for a week then you could work the locks.staff very friendly and helpful.The only downfall was that ,I don’t think the cottage had been used for a while,and you could strongly smell animals .the oven and extractor fan was dirty eg grease.there was dirty fat in a container in grill section and it smelt stale .but I just cleaned it and didn’t let it put us off our holiday,we had a fantastic time so please don’t let that experience put you off

    Cottage was by no means clean - thankfully took anti-bacterial wipes which came in useful on the kitchen sink! Toilet had poo on front of it! Carpets in need of a better vacuum - the Henry vacuum is clearly not up to the job. Shower running slow and heating not on for very long - thank god for the log burner! Stung into paying £2.49 for a 2 litre bottle of water in shop. Two good meals enjoyed at pub by canal.

    The location was very nice and the scenery was very good, the cottage was a good size and clean, but it needs redecorating it’s showing it’s age, there is also a smell of wet dog, especially upstairs and there must have been pets there recently as it set my daughters asthma off, also the bath is a worry as the bottom of the bath is very flexible which is disturbing. The kitchen is good and the rooms are a good size, overall it just needs redecorating apart from the kitchen.

    The views are amazing but the cottage is not up to standard. Sadly i should have checked previous reviews before i booked. They were not exaggerating!
