PERFECT Birthday on a perfect place!
This place is AMAZING!
I celebrate my 50th birthday on barge with my friends.
The accomondation was lovely, warm. The property is more amazing then we supposed to. Denise, the housekeeper was helpful, patience and lovely. The wellcome basket was absolutely suprise.
We decided to coming back in summer time. If the barge and the view was perfect in winter we could imagine how georgeous will be in summer....
Thanks for everything!
Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Hope we see you again
A Cool Place to Stay
There were 8 of us for 5 days over New Year 2018/2019 and we had a good time. The boat was very warm and cosy with masses of hot water for showers. It was surprisingly roomy and there was enough space for us all, but more people would have been difficult. Great views from the deck, we were very lucky with the weather. New Year's Eve was exceptional, the Harwich ships sounded their horns and there were fire work displays all around us. I would definitely recommend this for a different place to stay. Denise the housekeeper was helpful and welcoming. Some of the lights didn't work but Peter, the handy man, said there had been a problem with light bulb delivery and supplied us with alternative solutions. We felt looked after.
Thank you very much. So pleased you enjoyed yourselves, it is a special spot and the barge is amazing! Hope we see you again sometime
We had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend. Perfect for a short break with a large group and the welcome basket was huge with a great selection of goodies. We had to call the maintenance man as the hot water wasn't working; he arrived quickly and it was soon resolved. If anyone wants somewhere different to stay this is a definite winner. Thanks to Denise and Pete for making us feel welcome.
A great stay for those looking for something different.
Great and unusual accomodation. Lovely walks and so much to see just river watching. Must take binoculars next time. The ferries were amazing to see arriving and leaving especially in the dark. Accomodation below deck and not for those of a claustrophobic nature, but very cosy.
So pleased you enjoyed your break and hope to see you again
Unique place to spend a special weekend away.
Perfect setting to watch the world go by, no TV needed! The boat was equipped with everything we needed to keep us entertained from a bottle opener to a pack of cards. All rooms and bathrooms were clean and bedrooms had clean fresh linen and towels.
Shotley was a gentle 15 minute walk along the coastal path and provided some great opportunities to photograph the barge. Thoroughly enjoyed the welcome hamper which was a real surprise and already planning next years visit as a family, thank you so much!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again :-)
