We collected our boat pied plover from Blackwater marina, we were both quite nervous as first time we had done narrow boating, we were given a tutorial from Sarah who is quite a character,
The boat itself is very well equipped and cosy, nothing I could criticise.
Although at first it can feel stressful as you get to grips with steering and navigating narrow parts, it adds to the fun and you soon start to build confidence.
Everyone was helpful and as we were a 2 person boat people were happy to helped at the locks
My advice would be buy a map so you are prepared in advance for locks and narrow parts where one may need to walk ahead, it also helps you with mooring up near facilities. Just a note if you stop at chrik for supplies, the M and S on Google is attached to a petrol station on a busy junction, but there is a waitrose in the Dobbies garden centre which does not come up on Google it's is 2 mins from the Poachers pub and easier to get to on foot/bike.
All in all had a fab time and definitely had the bug.
Ps the maps are £11.95 and can be purchased at the start.

This is our fifth canal trip but first time from Worcester Marina. We originally booked from Aldermaston but the water level was too high and we received an email two days before we are due to pick up the boat. We were traveling and only have eSIM but no phone number. It was very stressful to arrive at LHR the day before and was told the plan has to be changed. We were offered a change of date which was obviously not possible as we travelled from Canada. They offer a change of pick up to Worcester. The service at Worcester was very poor. On returning the boat the lady would not refund part of the fuel deposit. All our previous four trips we got a refund of the balance of fuel deposit there and then upon returning the boat. But this lady told us they will email us to sort it out. I presumed it was because we were supposed to pick up the boat from Aldermaston and last min redirected to Worcester. However a week since then and multiple emails later we still hear nothing. They didn’t even bother to reply our email. We wrote to ABC office and they said is to do with Worcester Marina so we are just caught in between. The balance of fuel deposit may not be much but such treatment if their customers left a bitter taste, especially we were already disappointed with the change to Worcester after we had painstakingly build a detailed itinerary for the Aldermaston - Reading route. We also had to travel further from LHR to Worcester. You would expect a more sympathetic customer service instead we felt cheated…..

We have just returned from a wonderful two week boating holiday on the Golden Plover narrow boat from Alvechurch Marina.

It’s the first time we’ve booked a holiday with ABC Boat Hire and it certainly won’t be our last! We were most impressed with every aspect of our holiday and it far exceeded our expectations.

From start to finish, the staff dealing with our holiday were polite, friendly and very knowledgeable. We were kept well informed of all booking arrangements promptly by email and phone and were provided with comprehensive information regarding our forthcoming holiday.

On arrival at Alvechurch Marina, Katie and the other staff in Reception were very polite and welcoming. We were provided with a comprehensive guide book, which included full operating procedures for our boat, together with contact numbers in case of any queries or emergencies. We were then given a tour of our boat and informative boat induction before using our boat for the first time.

We were very impressed with our boat, Golden Plover, which was modern, clean and immaculate. It was well equipped and furnished throughout to a very high standard.

We were very lucky with the weather during our two week holiday and had a wonderful time meandering along the Worcester & Birmingham Canal, then the Stratford Upon Avon Canal, relaxing and watching the world go by. During our holiday we experienced various locks and tunnels and also visited a few local pubs en route, which provided excellent food and drink.

After two weeks, we were totally chilled out and relaxed! Just perfect!

We would thoroughly recommend ABC Boat Hire and can’t wait to book another boating holiday with them next year!

Many thanks to all the team for helping to make our holiday so memorable and fun!

All the best, Julia and Gary

Fantastic one week holiday on the Rufous Wren 4 berth. Two adults and Two kids aged 12 and 9. We set off on the Shropshire Union Canal from Nantwich after being shown around by Mike who informed us of the workings of the boat, locks (using a miniature model) as well as accompanying us south for around a mile to ensure we were happy with the handling of the boat. The first thing we noticed was the cleanliness of the boat. Everything was immaculate. The beds were very comfortable and the heating system was very efficient and easy to use.

After around an hour we encountered our first our first lock which was a bit daunting, however, one boat had just passed through and its passengers were more than willing to show us the ropes which was appreciated. After that it was easy and great fun. My son had brought his walkie talkies along and it turns out they were the best piece of kit we had! They were very handy for communication between the boat and lock handlers. We visited some lovely little towns and villages along the way and were never stuck for places to eat at Audlem, Market Drayton and Gnosall but dinner at Wharf Tavern won hands down.

We did require a toilet pumpout on the return journey however this was a simple procedure using the self service station at Market Drayton. I had called Nantwich centre to ask how we go about it and they advised us accordingly.

Weather wise - it was a mixed bag, a bit windy with only one full day of rain (it was still early April) but the waterproofs supplied on the boat came in very handy. We returned to Nantwich and were again were met by Mike who was

keen to ask all about our holiday. As you start the trip on a full tank of diesel (£100 advanced payment) this was topped up and calculated. We hadn't used anywhere near that amount and were promptly refunded the difference. All and all, a great experience and we would love to return again and try one of the many routes available. Special mention to Mike and Dave at Nantwich Canal Centre who looked after us throughout. A credit to the company.

Tips

Take walking boots / Wellington boots as towpaths out of town are very wet underfoot in places.

Walkie Talkies were very helpful.

Top up water whenever you can using the designated taps. It was amazing how much you go through.

Lookout for Pandas Pantry - an honesty farmshop just outside Audlem (lock number 1) selling pies, ice cream and cakes. The scones and jam were amazing!

Be prepared to change your plans - We started with a target destination of Brewood but decided not to rush so turned around early and enjoyed a leisurely cruise back from Wheaton Ashton.

Super day out from Alvechurch marina. Staff at ABC were great, booking was a breeze, very friendly welcome and check in, along with a comprehensive introduction to the boat. Then we were away for an adventure on the water at narrow boat pace. We soon got the hang of the boat and could enjoy the passing scenery and wildlife. Everyone in our party had a great time and a day out to remember. Thoroughly recommended.

Awful customer service. We booked a trip through ABC boat hire and on the day were unable to attend due to a very close family member being given 24-48 hours to live. They would not allow us to move our trip to another day or refund us to rebook. Even though the Marina was not fully booked out, they would not refund us due to them losing a days work. They did not even offer a discount code and showed no sympathy.

Excellent narrowbaot hire for family travelling on the canals of Britain - fully equipped and safe for
Novices of boat handling in/out of locks and tying up overnight on canal banks or marinas.
Have kitchen and showers so ideal for families for a 2 weeks vacation visiting many tourist sites around UK.
Most fellow narrowboaters are very friendly and cooperative and willing to help if you get into difficulties.
Although I never had to ask for help except in the very first morning for familiarising myself with steering rudder
different to a steering wheel.

Possibly one of the greatest experiences of my life, maybe even surpassing my marriage and the birth of our children! Not really of course, but such a relaxing experience and the level of customer service from first contact, booking, collection and return was faultless and friendly. I'm hooked on canal boats now and I have ABC Alvechurch to thank for that and I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much for a wonderful boat and a fantastic experience on our 25th wedding anniversary, why did we wait so long? Mark & Hazel.

I think it’s important before writing a review to remember the type of holiday a canal boat trip is

The boats are narrow by definition , they have flush , chemical toilets that do require 2 ply toilet paper , the electric is only from a battery converter , so running the engine is necessary to use the microwave etc

And finally the Boat company have no control of the weather

We have been on five breaks on narrow boats , so we have seen a good cross section . The boat we had from ABC was well prepared and had a good inventory . Everything worked and it was clean

The staff were more than helpful and the cruise notes gave good guidance on the river to canal locks etc

We did a week trip , Worcester to Droitwich and down to the Severn . Then up the Severn to Stourport , on the Canal to Kinver and return and then back down the River to Worcester

Droitwich and Stourport were both good to visit . The route through Kidderminster to Kinver was a contrast .

The Black Star at Stourport was very good for food

The Vine at Kinver was also lovely , but we only stopped for a drink

So , if you like narrow boat holidays , I would recommend ABC
