We had a wonderful weekend on the Blue Otter. The boat was beautifully kitted out, the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept on! Mark couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating when we were delayed on our journey up. The marina was quiet and friendly and The View bar/restaurant served very tasty food and beer! We would love to return.

We really enjoyed our stay on the Blue Otter, we didn't miss anything on board. It was warm and cosy. The location was nice and quiet, lovely for a long walk on the canal.

Had a lovely 2 night stay on the Blue Otter. The boat was immaculate, cozy , modern with stunning views. Lots of plug sockets , Wi-Fi had a brilliant signal . Smart tv with Netflix was available. Lovely touch of biscuits, tea , coffee and milk left for us. The most comfortable bed , we have ever slept in ! Mark was lovely and friendly and showed us all we needed to know about our stay. Lovely country pub within walking distance, as well as a little antique shop with cafe. Will be making a return visit without doubt. And already have friends booking their stay.
