“Different weekend stay”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We really liked the boat, rather like glamping on the water!
Well presented and clean too.
We were welcomed by Nick who was very personable and helpful, he also came out a few times over the weekend to assist us with queries, thanks!
Lovely to find a bottle of bubbly and chocolates waiting for us too :)
Decks and galley very nice and with superb comfortable seat and cushions.
The down side for us was the sleeping accommodation. We are 4 sizeable adults and the rooms are pretty compact, particularly bedroom 2 which was very difficult to get into and out of. This is the first time in life that I have felt a genuine fear of being trapped in a space.
The bedrooms are probably best suited to younger folk and perhaps the second bedroom hhfor small children. For this reason I have reviewed this as 4 dots rather than 5.
Lymington was superb and the marina facilities excellent.

Hi John,
Thanks for the reply and we can completely understand that some may find the rooms compact which is part and parcel of this type of holiday.
Glad it didn't spoil things for you and you were able to take Lymington in.
All the best Melissa

“Perfect chilled break”
Reviewed 16 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely few days spent on the yacht, we were blessed with good weather apart from one very wet day. The accommodation is lovely although very tight indeed but this added to the fun. Nick and Melissa were great and good communication from start to finish. The yacht club is great with an excellent shower block (it's easier than trying to use the one on the yacht). Lovely bar bistro, pricey but with great views and atmosphere. Altogether a great break.

“The perfect escape!”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the unique experience this getaway offers and felt we were made to feel very welcome with the friendly greeting. The boat was fantastic, beautifully presented and very comfortable with everything we needed for the weekend and more with the bubbly and hamper. We wanted nothing more than a quite relaxing weekend and that's exactly what we had even with the rain we thought it was fab! Thank you so very much and we hope to see you again in the near future! Allie & Adam.

“A taste of how the other half live!”
Reviewed 13 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My partner & I had a fabulous 3 night weekend on Y-Knot in early November. The boat is georgeous & it felt like such a luxury to be on board. She's been fitted out and dressed beautifully and has everything you'll need for a short break away. It's a unique experience and a chance to get a little taste of how the other half live. Living/sleeping quarters are very comfortable but obviously compact - it is absolutely ideal for a couple in my opinion. The deck area is spacious and I can imagine is amazing in the summer months. As it was November the canopy was up for our stay but we opened up the back end when the sun shone. The rain was no drawback in our case - in fact we enjoyed a massive thunder storm with torrential rain battering down and we were snug as bugs inside. The galley/kitchen area is very compact as you would expect so I'd avoid attempting a Sunday roast but we managed quite easily with pizza, and cooked breakfasts. We ate out a fair bit anyway and there are a multitude of places to eat out in Lymington (under 10 minutes walk to The Mayflower and 15 minutes to The Crown - both great pubs with good food) including the marinas own Haven Restaurant and Bar.
We had a welcome bottle of bubbly & some Lindt chocolates (neither lasted very long!), and essentials like a pint of mild, cooking oil, tea/coffee are all provided.
We rate the weekend away on Y-Knot and Lymington in our top 3 weekends away ever (and we've had a few).
I've added photos to the Y-Knot FB page.

Liked best: Being on board a boat and waking up to views of yachts/cruisers.
Liked least: Space is limited on a boat (and I like my space) so 3 nights was just about right for us.
