What some of our guests said about their experience aboard the Wessex Rose during 2013
|Guest name(s)||Home country||Date of Cruise||Comments|
|Joe Taylor||England||Dec 2013-Jan 2014||We were invited for a three night cruise on the Wessex Rose by friends. The winter weather
was cruel, but the ambiance, the peace of chugging along the canal at 3 miles per hour
allowed us the most relaxing winter break. I was so relaxed, the thought of starting work
after New Year was daunting. Karen and David are our kind of hosts, attentive, kind,
knowledgeable and friendly, The cooking was gourmet, thank you David! I can only imagine
how beautiful it must be cruising the canal in summer, though the weather allowed us and
our friends to talk in a cosy atmosphere. I had the best New Year ever.
Cheers David and Karen, all the best for the future
|David Green||England||Dec 2013-Jan 2014||An absolutely wonderful experience and David's cooking is superb!|
|Willie Collings||USA||Dec 2013-Jan 2014||Incredibly perfect -outstanding accommodation, wonderful food, warm and
very gracious hosts. Awesome experience
|Silvia Shinn||England||Dec 2013-Jan 2014||Being on the Wessex Rose for 3 nights has taken us completely into another world.
Arriving tired and stressed we left in a state of peace and are restored to return
to work with new energy. Karen and David are caring and kind hosts. Although our
journey was in winter with storms and rain accompanying the gently moving canal boat,
we loved the landscape, the silhouettes of the trees and the peaceful atmosphere.
Meals were exceptional.Thank you Karen and David
|Nick Shinn||England||Dec 2013-Jan 2014||What a wonderful way to step out of the rat race and slow right down for a few days|
|Margaret Holmes||England||September 2013||My first canal trip and it has been a wonderful experience, hopefully to be repeated.
David and Karen are the perfect crew and so efficient and friendly. The Wessex Rose
compares very favourably with any first class hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to
recommend it to anyone. Thank you for a most enjoyable holiday.

|Dougie and Patti Reed||Canada||August 2013||Our seven days on the Wessex Rose was possibly the best holiday we have ever had.
Combine a beautiful vessel with lavish accommodation, including a large private cabin
with en-suite restroom, five star meals and hosts that make you feel like family, along with
one of the most beautiful canals in England, and you have a perfect formula for complete
relaxation and enjoyment! Whether hiking on towpaths, taking a turn at the tiller or
exploring a quaint English village, our days were filled with pleasant memories that
will remain with us always. By the end of the week David and Karen became valued friends.
We will highly recommend this adventure to all our friends and family.
|Priestly Brook||England||August 2013||Brilliant, relaxing and enjoyable break of seven days!|
|David Pyle||USA||August 2013||David and Karen are wonderful hosts and the Wessex Rose is as comfortable as a
boat can be. A holiday on the Wessex Rose is a fantastic experience.
|Tristan Pyle||USA||August 2013||Really great experience|
|Monica Martin||USA||August 2013||We had a great trip. These four days were the highlight of our 2 weeks in England.|
|Debbie Collings||USA||July 2013||You treat a guest as one would want to be treated. You're pleasant, informative and kind
and your kindness goes beyond what a guest would expect. The food was creative and healthy,
the salon is spacious and comfortable and my room exceeded my expectations.
I thought I would be in a closet of a room but I never felt cramped. I think it would
be fun to organise a group to fill the boat for a private cruise.
