Customer reviews

These are the reviews for Ashby Boats. There are 16 reviews.


(Ashby) A comfortable boat for two, would have been cramped with 4 adults. Easy cruising with minimal locks.
Andrew from Harwich (10 October 2016)

(Ashby) Well prepared boat and nothing too muc trouble
Ray (03 October 2016)

(Bosworth) Not the best of holidays for a few reasons. the boat was a tad too long and hard to moor and turn around. biggest problem was finding somewhere to moor near eating places due to large amount of privately owned boats at key areas with no-one aboard. the canals were too narrow to double moor. fortunately we had with us ample provisions as finding a store to buy food etc. Was also very difficult. very hard to find places where rubbish could be disposed of. it would have been useful to have information given by the company or boatyard. . we could not fault the boat. it was well equipped and comfortable apart from seated areas outside the cabins. . . regrettably we are unlikely to repeat this experience.
June from Clacton On Sea Essex (02 September 2016)

(Ambion) Very pleasant and most enjoyable.
David from Liss (22 August 2016)

(Ashby) Lovely relaxing holiday.
Janet from Leigh-On-Sea (08 August 2016)

(Ambion) Our first narrowboat holiday, albeit with experience small boat handlers. enjoyed the quiet ashby canal and all the wonderful wildlife - even saw a kingfisher taking a fish. then headed off down the oxford canal for further adventures. . the staff at ashby boats were extremely friendly and helpful, even changing a starter motor for the engine in 30 minutes when we had had some problems. they filled us with confidence that any problem we may have encountered would be sorted easily and quickly. . we were two families, including a 12 year old and a dog - loads of room and no problems with the accommodation. tv signal was usually good but we enjoyed "old fashioned" evenings with cards, dominoes and board games. we had borrowed dvds from ashby boats' stock but didn't actually need them. . if anyone is stopping at rugby there is easy access to the cinema and shops - a mere 5 minutes walk - we were very lucky to be just in the right place, the only time we had rain so went off to the cinema for the evening. . would love to do it all again soon.
Julia from Scottish Borders (05 August 2016)

(Oakthorpe) Excellent holiday - one we would definitely repeat!! it was absolutely perfect and the staff and boatyard were incredibly lovely and helpful.
Amy from Taunton (23 July 2016)

(Ambion) Excellent leisurely 5 days spent on the ashby, coventry and north oxford canal. Some good pubs ( dog and hedgehog) easy waterway and places of interest ( the bosworth battlefield centre well worth a look). ashby boats a very professional and friendly outfit, will be booking again next year for a canal fishing trip.
Gavin from Aberdeen (08 July 2016)

(Measham) We had a wonderful time on board measham, we found it to be well equipped loads of storage space, the only time we felt a bit cramped was in the sitting area with 4 adults and three dogs but it didn't matter because there was outdoor space to sit at the front of the boat, very pleasant on a nice evening. we also found dog hairs stuck to the velour upholstery of the seats even though the dogs didn't go on the furniture and we covered them up but they do tend to blow about, I feel a small carpeted area would have been better in the sitting area but I understand its laminated floor so that its easy to mop if needed... if you are taking dogs with you its necessary to take a small hand hoover too, it was invaluable to us. ashby boat company are very special, they are friendly, helpful and very tolerant and I would recommend using them if its a first time experience and the ashby canal is so lovely and peaceful and there are no locks so time to spend getting to know your boat without worrying about technicalities. a very relaxing, stress free holiday enjoyed by humans and dogs... and if your dog is likely to go for an unplanned swim it might be worth looking into a life jacket for them, we didn't but wish we had and would do in future. one of our party has poor mobility and despite this was able to manage on the boat very well and get on and off very easily. on measham there was a double fixed bed at one end and two singles half way down the boat which were adequate for adults although not massively comfortable but would be perfect for children/teenagers. we found the toilet became a bit smelly after a few days and we called in at the boat yard on our way along the canal the other way to request a pump out which although not necessary after such a short time our request was graciously granted by the yard staff.. and we were glad of it. the boat was clean, bright and airy and in very good condition and we were all very impressed. would recommend putting your trust in ashby boats for a narrow boat holiday.
David from Alfreton (25 June 2016)

(Ambion) Fantastic relaxing 4 days
Carl (03 June 2016)

(Shackerstone) The shackerstone was a lovely boat. We could have been more skilled. The canal could have been deeper and not so bendy but we cannot change that. A good time was had by all.
Carol from Derby (28 May 2016)

(Bosworth) All 10 of us absolutely loved the whole experience. The barge was great, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They even booked us a table at one of the pubs on the route. Can't wait to do it again next year.
Nichola from Pontypridd, South Wales. (16 May 2016)

(Measham) This was are first time cruise on a canal boat and we loved every minute the boat was very cosy when the weather turned cold,the ashby canal was beautifully peaceful well worth the sail.
Gary from Maghull (14 May 2016)

(Shenton) Brilliant hire company. Allowed us to collect boat early which allowed us to leave early a.m and avoid traffic driving up from wales. Gas central heating was brilliant as previous boats we have hired required engine to run to operate blown heat system.
Dean from Llanelli (23 April 2016)

(Ashby) Friendly and helpful staff and well equipped boat. we chose a quiet canal but p'raps a bit too quiet. . overall a lovely break.
Maggie (18 April 2016)

(Golding) Fantastic time had by all the family .
Paula from London (04 April 2016)
