Having recently returned from a 4 night break with an 8 berth barge, I can confidently say it is one of the best barging holidays we have experienced. The initial introduction was thorough and emphasised particular safety procedures not always explained by other companies. This was impressive.
A welcome bottle of rose and flowers was a great touch to get us in the mood.
The boat was well equipped with even the little details like folding chairs, hairdryer, dishcloth and oven gloves provided. Our party of 7 had a great time and it was pleasant to have room to sit out together at the front or rear of the barge.
Overall, the whole experience was excellent and thank you to the polite and helpful team at the site, who couldn't do enough to make our trip brilliant.

Just returned from another great holiday aboard nb Fjord Empress. As usual on arrival at the boat yard the staff were welcoming and very helpful = the boat was ready and waiting and in great condition (as always). We only had one little hitch the weather for the first two days was a little damp. Andersen Boats try harder for sunshine next time!!! Seriously though we have hired from this company for quite a few years now and have never had any complaints regarding the staff or the boats. Thank you. See you in September (for a two week hire). Please remember lemon roses are my favourite!

Spent a week on Sande Fjord in April 2015. Slightly apprehensive initially but we were contacted by Andersen's on the morning before we arrived, which was reassuring. There are locks within walking distance of Andersen's Boats so the owners came with us and talked us through these which was great and we received all the instructions we needed. The owners were contactable f we needed during the week, which again was reassuring.
The boat itself was immaculately clean and comfortable. Kitchen facilities were excellent and the complimentary bottle of wine went down a treat!
We received a warm welcome by the owners when we returned, so we'd definitely recommend Andersen's Boats for anyone considering a canal trip.

Just spent the bank holiday on the Sande Fjord with some friends. We were a bit apprehensive to start, as we had never done this sort of thing before. But the boat owners gave us all the information we needed. The boat had everything we needed - including waterproofs which came in handy during the trip! Would definitely recommend this company to anyone who would like to try a narrowboat holiday.

We took a 2 week cruise around the Cheshire Ring. Our reception at the boatyard was excellent and we were pleased with the boat. A nice touch was that we found a complementary bottle of wine on board. I have no hesitation in recommending this company.
