“Wonderful”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Topsy is perfect in every way. Very comfortable boat and Mark and Linda have taken great pains to make it a home from home. Tastefully furnished and all amenities on board. The welcome basket was plentiful and most generous. We enjoyed a most wonderful week on the canal and Topsy allowed us good rest at night. Would recommend Topsy to anyone. Thank you Mark and Linda and your crew for having made us so comfortable and having afforded us a great holiday, we were sorry to have to leave her. Will visit Topsy again of that I am sure.

“Best holiday ever!”
Reviewed 24 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Topsy is a beautiful boat and the owners, Mark and Lynda, are incredibly welcoming and helpful. We booked without having ever been on a canal boat, and it was great fun. The owners taught us how to steer the boat and operate the locks - a great feeling of accomplishment. They also provided an amazing welcome basket so no need to arrive with groceries. The boat is lovely and comfortable with lots of entertainment (music, TV, movies, even a pub quiz book) Best sleep I've ever had. And if you want a really relaxing day, you can hire a captain for a very reasonable amount to steer the boat while you sit at the bow and watch the ducks and swans drift by. I really hope we can do this again one day.

“Lovely Place to Stay”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just returned from a few days on Topsy.
Visiting Bath with family and fancied something a bit different (and cheaper) than a town centre hotel. Owners extremely helpful before we arrived and even more so on arrival. Easy to find and free parking very close to the boat. Useful introductory talk by Lynda and a food basket that could have fed us for most of the week!
Boat beautifully equipped. Central heating (needed in Feb!) aswell as a log burner and extra heaters. All mod cons from WiFi to Bluetooth to vinyl! We used the boat as a B&B, using the Park and Ride 3 mins walk away. Walk into Bath along the river takes about an hour and not particularly attractive as mostly industrial.
Highly recommend this as a great place to stay outside the city, watching kingfishers and rowers fly by. I imagine even nicer in the summer!
Our dog was also made most welcome - thank you.
