Absolutely loved our time on this beautiful canal boat! We can’t wait to rent it again next year. Very homely and it had everything we needed! There was even coffee and sugar to get us started . I would definitely recommend.

We have just had a short break on the Georgie Bee. Very nice boat. David and Sarah do everything they can to ensure you have a good holiday. Would recommend them if you are looking for a narrow boat holiday.

Had a fabulous time on The Georgie Bee, well equipped, stylish interior, everything we needed, customer service was top class, well organised tuition on driving the boat, we were left feeling confident and well informed on handling the boat throughout our trip … David and Sarah were very helpful before and during our trip on hand should we need assistance at any time. We came back feeling relaxed and looking forward to another adventure on The Georgie Bee.  Can highly recommend.

What can I say! What a wonderful break we had! David and Sarah were absolutely wonderful; they made sure everything was carefully explained so that the holiday was safe and enjoyable, and every care was taken to ensure we were happy before handover. They’re so approachable and genuine, we we’re really put at ease that no question was a silly question.
The Georgie Bee is pretty luxurious and modern, everything is really well thought out and is very comfortable for the five days we were aboard, truly a home away from home. I have no doubt that an extended holiday would be just as enjoyable and very achievable. Everything was beautifully clean and homely; which given the current/recent pandemic really puts you at ease.
Everything is so well thought out, even with a 10 year old and baby in tow it was a very pleasurable break. I will most definitely be back.
Thank you both so much for such a pleasurable holiday experience.

We have recently returned from a week on the Georgie Bee.  The boat is beautifully presented and a real home from home. The surrounding countryside and villages are very pretty with some great canal side pubs to enjoy.  If you want to escape from the stress of every day life, look no further. Sarah and David are wonderful hosts.  Thank you both.  William, Andrew and Grace.

My partner and I have just returned from a short break aboard The Georgie Bee. I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with the service and information that we received. David and Sarah are extremely friendly and are very accommodating and there for you if you have any problems. They have only the one boat at the moment, but have a great little set up. You receive a very personalised professional service. We were given sufficient tuition to steer the boat and got shown how to go through a lock.

This was our first canal trip but we have peeked inside other canal boats and they appear a bit basic. The boat itself is very well decorated internally – very modern and has all you need. We didn’t really have any issues during the break apart from travelling too many hours in one day but that was down to us. We very reluctantly gave the boat back at the end of our break as we wanted to keep going. Even though I have limited canal holiday experience I do thoroughly recommend using them. The only problem is that they will no doubt become very popular. We are certainly thinking of a longer break next time.

My family and I had a fantastic time on The Georgie Bee ran by David and Sarah.  Even after operating the locks it was the most relaxing time you could have on a holiday.  We were met by Mike who was very pleasant and informative who stayed with us to make sure we knew how to operate all the equipment and the locks and make sure we were safe.  It was great meeting with other holiday boaters and the people that lived on them also, everyone was very friendly.  The Georgie Bee is very well equipped and clean.  On the return we were met by David who got the boat back to the moorings where we also met Sarah.  We had a 7 day cruise which finished all too soon.  We would recommend a holiday on The Georgie Bee and wish David and Sarah all the best on their new venture. 

Thank you both

We recently returned from a trip away on The Georgie Bee. David and Sarah were very welcoming and gave us excellent instruction on how to handle the boat.Our break was very lovely and the excellent accommodation made it like a home from home.  We had never been on a narrow boat before our trip and would thoroughly recommend it.

Linda and Paul, 30th July – 2nd August 2021

Had an absolutely amazing time. Never been on a canal boat before but we are definitely going to re book for a week next year as the time went too quick we wanted to explore more. David and Sarah are a lovely, friendly couple and I would recommend their holidays. We received expert tuition and felt so confident on the water and the locks because of this . Thank you xx

Annette, Steve and family, 23rd – 26th July 2021

I would highly recommend Bee Boating Breaks, my husband, 2 kids and I have just got back from a 3 night weekend break and we all loved it. The boat is beautifully decorated, very homely, extremely clean and has everything you need for your stay aboard. Having never used a narrow boat before they stayed with us until we were confident on how to manoeuvre the boat and operate the locks. Brilliant fun for all the family and 10 out of 10 for the boat.

Wendy and Dominic, 14th – 18th June 2021

Highly Recommended. We had a wonderful 4 day mid week break on the Georgie Bee. The boat is modern, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners David and Sarah provided great instruction and guidance on using the boat with very useful advice on routes to take.
We loved our stay on the Georgie Bee. Many thanks David & Sarah for a fabulous holiday.

Dan and Emma, 11th – 14th June 2021

Many thanks again.

Wow What an amazing 4 nights spent on “The Georgie Bee” meandering down the canal, absorbing all the spectacular wildlife up close and personal. Everything we needed to relax and unwind, a real “Home from Home”. Other boaters were so friendly and helpful. David and Sarah have really gone above and beyond, fantastic hosts we can’t thank them both enough. As novices David really allowed us to gain confidence before leaving us which was really reassuring. The boat is absolutely beautiful inside and out and we will definitely be hiring again next year we are hooked simply can’t wait.

Until next year.

Well it’s the end of the most amazing 5 days!
We have never been on a narrowboat holiday before and when friends invested in a narrowboat we just jumped at the chance to have a go!
What a fantastic experience! Filled with fun, new adventures, lots of laughter, loads of love, new experiences and most of all total freedom to enjoy life!
If I can advise anyone to take a narrowboat holiday then please try the Bee Boating Breaks experience on the Georgie Bee.
Dave and Sarah make your experience like home from home. All you need to have the most relaxing time.
Everyone you meet along your journey is so friendly, helpful and relaxed.
Thank you so much to Sarah and Dave for allowing us to take your amazing new adventure out on her maiden voyage as a hire narrowboat. A totally unforgettable experience.
Forget the open road get yourselves on “the cut”.
