“Brilliant Stay, and a nice relaxing break”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed on Gloria over the weekend with the family and had an excellent time. The owner, Hester, was very helpful in showing us how to use everything and steer the boat and stayed with us until we were comfortable we knew what we were doing! They also have secure parking at Bridgewater marina in case you are worried about leaving your car over night.

The boat itself is lovely, spotlessly clean! There is a nice cosy bedroom at the front of the boat that leads out into a seated area. There are windows you can zip (and unzip) which was very child friendly. The living area is surprising spacious and the fire and central heating makes the place very warm. All the cooking essentials are provided, and the free standing tables are great when eating and moving out the way if you are using the dinette bed.

The trip itself was lovely and relaxing, we went from Worsley and moored up in Lymm for the night before heading back to Worsley the next day. The whole family had a fantastic time, and we would definitely do it again soon!
