We have booked a week with Canaltime at Sawley Marina in June 2013. We fly into London Heathrow two days ahead of time and are wondering if anyone has suggestions for getting to Sawley and provisioning the boat. Right now, I am thinking of spending the night in London (our flight arrives fairly late) and the next day taking the train to Nottingham. We would then spend the night there and the next day make our way to Sawley. Does anyone have suggestions for a quaint B&B or small independent hotel in which to stay in Nottingham? Where would be the best place to shop for boat provisions? What is the best way to get from Nottingham to Sawley (and the grocery store to get provisions)? I believe I read somewhere that you should have your provisions with you the day you check in for the boat. Does that sound correct? Does anyone know what time we should arrive at Sawley Marina to check in? Thanks for any and all suggestions regarding this trip.
