    A birthday treat

    Oct. 10, 2017

    My husband and I stayed on Running bear for two nights for his birthday, it is a beautiful wooden boat which was cosy, warm, clean & lovingly restored so the space is perfect. There is a space upstairs to enjoy bubbles outdoors, heating if needed, very posh toilets/showers in the marina and a bar/restaurant if needed. Thank you Andy, Jan & Sheila- we’ll be back with the kids!!

    Great experience

    Beautifully presented boat in a fantastic location. Great facilities. Lovely people to deal with. We'll be booking again


    Running Bear - a beautiful bateau!

    July 29, 2017

    Running Bear hosted us for a great weekend! Hosted at such a beautiful marina, with incredible facilities just s stones throw from the boat, it's in a prime location. Boat moves minimally, and gently rocks you to sleep at night, as you rise and fall up to 3 metres! The flying bridge was perfect for a G&T, and watching the sunset over the marina. All in all a perfect weekend!

    We had friends with a boat in Lymington Yacht Haven who were coming down for the weekend....very last minute, we decided to have a look at the options on BOB...decided to go for Running Bear, as she had heaps of character, quite unlike all the other boats. Whilst we will try those at some stage, I wanted to have an experience with my two children William (12) and Amelia (8) that they would not forget....a real wooden boat. we booked it at around 11am, and Jan had called us back within the hour....brilliant response time, and great communication. We arrived as arranged and met Andy the other co-owner, who I can only describe as an absolute gentleman. He explained everything about the boat, and made us feel so welcome to have the privilege of staying aboard her. The welcome pack full of goodies and a bottle of wine, were just the icing on the cake.....a touch of class. we will be back many times, I am sure of that.... I cannot recommend the boat and the way we were treated more highly.... Thank you Andy and Jan, you made memories for the kids, and me come to that.

    A great boat.

    Everything about this boat is fantastic. The owners are really amenable and very easy to contact. The greeting on arrival was perfect and the boat was beautifully kitted out with everything you could possibly want. There is lots of space on the boat and it's very comfortable. The location of the boat is ideal too both in the marina and its vicinity to Lymington.The welcome basket is a nice touch too. We will definitely​ return.

    One night stand

    She's a few years older than me and yet was simply magnificent! Introduced to four of us by a very friendly and hospitable Andy on our late arrival just before dusk, we enjoyed ourselves till the early hours. She is so full of character, inviting and cosy inside, we'll definitely consider another stay. Thank you Andy, for sharing Running Bear with us!
