Had a great little trip down the river (half hour). A dukes 2 children and dog. Staff were great, route was easy and boat was easy too so if you have concerns don't worry. I think for us an hour would have been too long

We hired a motor boat for 1/2 hour which cost £20 which is worth it especially for a large group. We really loved the experience going up the river and would recommend this experience for all ages.

Ok, so the boats are a little older and perhaps a little tired but they work well and without any issues. We took one out for best part of an hour and enjoyed every minute. The river is really something. The guy's face when we...More
