We have just returned from a 7 day holiday on the beautiful LLangollen canal. We were so impressed with our boat. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and we were really impressed with all the finishing touches. As novices we were given an in depth introduction on what to do. This is really needed and I am aware not all companies do this. The owner herself spent an hour with me covering the first locks and was happy to give me her time until I felt comfortable to do it alone. All the staff were really friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The trip to Llangollen took us on average 6 hours a day cruising to get there but it was well worth it. This trip is very good for first timers as it isn't as far as the other route and has much less locks, which take it from me is a real bonus. Overall, an excellent holiday getting back to nature and chilling out. I would recommend Andersen's to anybody who is interested in a canal holiday and we will be definitely using this company again. Thank you to all at Andersen's for their time and help.

Just finished a week cruising the canals of Cheshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands what a great week we had.
Our journey started with great lock instructions for 3 locks from Pauline and my husband being given a detailed explanation of the Bergen Fjord's capabilities from Terry.We set off on Saturday afternoon and by the evening we were confident.Weather was great apart from one day when we had the most locks to do!!! Harecastle tunnel was an experience but it closes at 5pm and you might not get through depending on the time you arrive there.
The four counties is do-able in a week but you have to cruising for at least 8-9 hours a day Buy a map from the office and you can plot your busy lock days that`s what we did. In our experience its better if you have a few people who can steer it rather than just one.
Andersens were helpful, patient friendly and know their boats when we do the Llangollen canal next we will definitely be using one of their boats.

This was the second time we booked a narrowboat holiday with Andersen Boats. Why? Because it's just a fantastic company which offers true value for money. They are friendly, helpful, witty and their boats are great! Need I say more? Okay, one more thing: when you're considering a boating trip, just don't hesitate and book one with ANDERSEN BOATS. You won't be disappointed! Spread the word...

Hired fjord emperor for a week and completed the four counties ring. Can not fault Jenny and her team from Anderson boats all staff really friendly and helpful. The boat has everything you need including a vase of roses and a nice bottle of wine. In fact we had misread about towels being provided, we phoned them and David didn't hesitate to bring us a supply to the nearest point that they could get to. Would recommend this company. We will certainly be back next year. Thank you to the team.
