“One of the better narrowboats on the british midlands”
Reviewed 6 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We rented Kodran for a relaxing week in the midlands. Michael and his team made sure that we had all of our bases covered from start to finish. Kodran was a joy to steer - the other reviewer is correct, it does become like second nature.

It looked like new (I believe a recent paint job) and was honestly such a wonderful place to spend a week.

Michael we look forward to returning again next year!

“An adventure on water”
Reviewed 19 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We hired Kodran for a small getaway in early May. The team at Gailey Wharf were great, got us up and running with little fuss and a solid introduction into narrowboating!

We were a little apprehensive but set out for the first day. Very soon, it became second nature, morning checks, evening checks, mooring, moving, and some fun with turning and the odd sandbank - tip: wiggle!

The boat is well equipped, especially the galley! In fact, we did need the waterproofs, as we had a very wet day, but that also added to the excitement, take a along your Fisherman's Friends.

Great with kids, but I'd think they need to be 6+ to really enjoy.

Strongly recommend, a few days felt like a few weeks away!
