‪We rented an ABC narrowboat for a weekend excursion out of Aldermaston Wharf along the Kennet and Avon Canal. We had a few questions leading up to the trip as we had never been on a canal boat overnight (though we had extensive boating experience) and they got back to us promptly with helpful answers. The boat exceeded our expectations for decor and fittings (the bathroom was especially commodious).

A few caveats...
On the day of departure the communication was very poor. They didn't answer our phone call and when we left a message they never replied. We wanted to see if we could leave 2 hours earlier than the appointed 2pm time to make the first longer (especially as we had to return the boat a bit early). When we arrived, the people at the wharf said "we never got the message. if we had we would have been happy for you to go out earlier." :-(

Which brings us to the weekend deal. They had a package for 2pm Friday afternoon through 9am Monday morning. I guess the one final night on the boat is no skin off their teeth and some people might want it, but for us it seemed logical to return to boat at the end of Sunday and not take a day off work on Monday just to get another night on the river. We would have preferred an earlier start on the Friday to get a bit more time in on the first day.

Always impressed when places like this have a nice hot shower with good water pressure, but unfortunately, it ONLY had hot water which was quite scalding so actually hard to shower with.

We couldn’t get the wifi to work ever (but it’s only a limited amount of data anyway provided to guests anyway, about 500m).

We were disappointed that there was no way to run appliances (eg. fans) in the evening with the boat turned off.

TIP 1 - we propped up dining room bed mattress with towels to level out the mattress. The boat seems to list to starboard side which had us rolling out of our bed the first night.

TIP 2 - The whole point of living with the small quarters constraints is to access the expansive outdoors. But without some folding chairs and a table, it’s hard to sit an have a lunch or drink aside from picnicking on the ground. We should have brought some of these.

TIP 3 - If you drop off out of hours, you need the gate code to get out of the facility (or at least your car out of their parking lot).‬

‪We did the Stourport Ring in a week from Alvechurch. Lovely boat, really well equipped and fantastic staff. The safety briefing was thorough and they answered any questions. Returning the boat was really fast and we were back on the road in 20 minutes.

We enjoyed the route, with lots of beautiful countryside, industrial areas and Birmingham City centre. There were 2 really long tunnels which gave me the heebie-jeebies. Luckily my son stepped up and took over. I would allow a couple more days for the Stourport Ring...just for a little down time and rest. Tardebigge in a heatwave was fun.

Great job ABC Boat Hire.‬

‪Fantastic two weeks aboard the Horned Lark out of Alvachurch. Opted to do the Avon Ring with a detour to Warwick castle and Gas Street in Birmingham. Lots of beautiful scenery and loads of locks so a route not for the faint hearted.
Weather was awesome …20 mins of rain in two weeks. Staff at alvechurch were very friendly and helpful, the boat was very well equipped. We had a six berth for four adults so saved having to put the lounge bed up. Only negative most of the live aboards aren’t very friendly towards the hire boats.‬

‪This was our first time on a canal boat, and it certainly won’t be our last.
ABC looked after us impeccably. They ran through every detail before we set sail, making it sound so easy!
The boat we had , had recently been refurbished ( Grey Partridge).
Although a six berth, there were only four of us, and I would certainly recommend keeping it that way. I feel six would have made it feel more cramped.
We hired it for four nights, and enjoyed blissful relaxed sailing from Wrenbury to Ellesmere and back.
A fabulous four days had by all.
I would also just like to mention Katie from the Whitchurch marina, who came out to our boat whilst in Ellesmere to sort out our WiFi……as my title reads…..FIRST CLASS!‬

‪we used ABC barges in May this year a group of women we decided to go friday till monday. on arriving we were shown the boat given a 5 min tution on boat and we set off, the beds were made up wrong and the mattress were stainedand wrong sections given, the kitchen was not clean, nothing like pictures in hoseasons discription. we then discovered our toilets did not work, after phoning office they asked us to find pump and try to fix ourselves, by then we were fedup with the whole holiday, then we were told we had to be back by 9.00am on the monday, anyone who has been on a barge knows it takes ages to get anywhere we would have to start at 5.00am to get back.... honestly this was the worse time of our lives . the people who lived on barges on the cannal were not very happy where ever you mored up. I would personally go with a company which are more helpful and give prober advise . we did complain to hoseasons but to be honest they had our money and did not care. the weekend for barge was 1800.00 wish we went and stayed in a nice hotel instead.‬

‪Great family day out from Alvechurch. Not only was it value for money, the day trip floated the boat of the teenager and octogenarians on board. Boat was easy to steer and really well equipped for the day for our on board picnic. Staff are super friendly and helpful too.‬

‪At the end of April we enjoyed a very happy family weekend on the Red Breasted Goose. Staff at the Alvechurch marina couldn't have been more helpful and the 7 of us were soon able to set off on a sunny afternoon along the Birmingham & Worcestershire canal. This break was originally booked for 2020, so it was great to be able to have the opportunity at last for three generations of the family to spend time together. It was good for us all to relax in the sunshine and watch as the countryside gently slid past with fresh greenery and lots of bluebells. The younger members of the party especially enjoyed being able to stop the traffic to open a swing bridge and facing up to the challenge of turning a 69' narrowboat in a 70' winding hole and the senior member (81 years old) was happy to take a couple of turns at the tiller.
Well worth waiting two years for!‬

‪Perfect 4 day cruise for 4 people on a 49ft boat from Lowesmoor marina around the Droitwich Ring.

ABC staff were excellent and providing a full explanation of what to do and where to go etc so we set off on a clockwise route out of the marina.

The weather was perfect and our first stop at the Camp Inn we enjoyed a drink listening to some local live music along with a resident peacock and geese!

We would highly recommend this route for a short weekend break or similar as its the perfect balance of duration with locks and pubs etc along the way without being busy.

All in all and excellent long weekend with thanks to all the staff.‬

‪Fantastic 4day break from Gayton marina to Milton Keynes and back .
Staff were excellent from start to finish.
Instructions were made easy to understand and demonstrated very well. The boat was spotlessly clean with enough kitchen wear . Beds were very comfortable. Showers were adequate and hot . please don’t expect a power shower experience .
We had 4 adults and 2 teens and we managed very well over the 4 days. We were very lucky with the weather so didn’t need to use the provided waterproofs except going through the bills worth tunnel. Plenty of places on route for food and drinks .
Overall excellent service throughout
Many thanks‬

‪We had a brilliant day on board. The boat was warmed up ready for our arrival. The check in process was quick and easy, and Simon, the Technician showed us all we needed to know in just a few minutes. With on board tea/coffee making supplied, an easy to use heads,and saloon heating the boat had everything we needed. The engine was quiet and easy to use. We had a great day. Thank you ABC.‬
