Booked SIr Melleaus for one one week at the beginning of the school holidays. As we have boated before we looked for an active route with plenty of locks to keep teenage son and his friend occupied so we chose to tackle the four counties ring. We had some hectic and long days,as we expected. Lots of space inside the... More

This was our second trip with Countrywide Cruisers, this time unfortunately we only had a midweek break (4 nights). We somehow managed to avoid any traffic getting round Birmingham so arrived early. They were still completing the final checks so recommended a local pub for a quick drink and we still managed to get in our boat 15mins early. Cliff... More

Our family of 4 rented the Sir Melleaus for a week at the end of July and the early days of August 2016. Upon arrival we were an hour early and prepared to wait until it was our turn. However the staff at Countrywide Cruisers invited us to get on the boat earlier, as soon as the filling of the... More

Picked boat up for week long trip. Great handover from Cliff who went through all we needed to know before setting off. The boat (Sir Fergus) was great and just right for us having two doubles. We picked CWC because of the location (picked up daighter from mearby V Fest) but the company are really good in terms of value... More

Arrived early, but the boat was ready so we didn't have to hang around. The boat we had booked was under repair, so we were given an alternative, which had the same facilities as the one we had booked, but just with a slightly different layout, so was a perfect swap.We were given an excellent handover which covered everything we...

We (family of four) have just returned from an amazing few days on Sir Bruin. We left with two tired, bad tempered children who were completely transformed by the experience and who loved drifting along finding new places and generally helping with the boat. Day by day we all unwound as the canal worked its magic. The Shropshire countryside was... More

Lovely long weekend on Sir Cador. We arrived around 3pm on the Friday and could load our stuff straight onto the boat. We then settled in and had an intro by the lovely Cliff, who also supervised us for 5-10 minutes along the canal as we were complete novices (ask for this service, and make sure you read the handbook...

Sir Ironside was very comfortable, we loved the stove and used it on several nights, even though the weather was so good. Great deisel engine, powerful enough to get us out of trouble, but also very quiet at cruising speed. Only a couple of suggestions. The bedroom and living room would benefit from a few shelves. The chairs in the... More

All in all a great week for a family of 4 (with 2 teenage sons). We didn't get away quite as early as we'd hoped mainly due to a jam on the M5, and by the time we arrived there were a couple of groups ahead of us so had to wait 20 mins, fair enough. The staff were friendly... More
