Spent the weekend in the wonderful Dutch House close to London so many choices of venues nearby to visit. The temperature dropped this weekend to single figures but we were warm with every comfort on board that you could possible want. It was over and above expectations and we enjoyed every moment, Cannot wait to return. Thank you Manuela and Richard.

My husband and I spent three nights on The Lovely Dutch Barge over the Easter break and had the most relaxing time. The barge is amazing and the facilities superb. The bed was super comfy and we slept like logs. There are a range of walks to local hostelries all of which were very accommodating. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and loved listening to the many birds. Great communication with the owners and a lovely welcome - the fresh flowers were a delightful touch. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOLIDAY DESTINATION!
