Great host, lovely location, would recommend to anyone. Make use of the bikes on the cycle path to get around!!!!
Was lovely to see someone take such pride, attention and care of their rental property.
Made to feel very welcome Laurence and boat were great.
Recommend as a place to relax and unwind.
Looking forward to returning !
I just returned from a week staying on the Marianna. Cannot recommend the boat highly enough. I just wish I could have stayed an extra week, but I will definitely return. Laurence, the owner, is a natural host, and nothing was too much trouble for him. He is ready to assist in any way possible. Extremely warm welcome, and everything went smoothly from the word go. The boat is spotlessly clean, every comfort is on board, and an incredibly comfortable bed. Plus heating at both ends of the boat, so would also be perfect for out of season bookings. Private, quiet, safe. The only noise at night are the owls, and the soft chimes of the village church bell. The Black Bull is well worth visiting, about a 10 minute walk away. I travelled by train, just over an hour from St Pancras, with one change at Strood. So even if you are not a car owner, it's perfectly practical. Plus the venue is so beautiful and peaceful, the last thing I wanted to do was leave the boat to go into a town! Many thanks Laurence for making my stay so memorable. Already looking forward to my next visit.
A very clean and well equipped boat moored in a small basin right along side the R.Medway next to East Farleigh's medieval stone bridge. Excellent walks along the towpaths in both directions. Many thanks to Laurence, the owner, for his help and warm welcome. Will definitely try to stay again..
Lovely welcome from Laurence,superb boat with all amenities and a wonderfully comfortable bed! A pretty little oasis of peace and tranquility would go back in a heartbeat! Was a great experience to cross off our "bucket list"...
What a fabulous weekend getaway! The cleanest and best equipped boat you could wish for. Laurence was the perfect host explaining every detail and even welcoming us with a cup of tea! Truly a gem of a place - we'll be back for sure.
