We have just returned from a week on Vita and had a great time. Although the weather was a bit chilly the boat was warm and cosy. We saw cows in the river and it was like stepping back in time with the manual locks - so pretty and a lovely escape from everything.
We had the most amazing holiday on Vita. We were total novices as this was our first boat holiday. Alex was so helpful and took us through a lock . She was always there to answer our questions and queries prior and during the holiday. This put my mind at rest and really enjoyed our holiday . The boat is well equipped and Alex has gone over and beyond to make your stay comfortable. The river Wey is beautiful . We enjoyed some wonderful views and pubs on the way. We would thoroughly recommend holiday on this boat.
*** We knew you would love it and just chill down and relax! How can you not enjoy the charms of the River Wey and the watering holes too? You both took to it like ducks to water and we look forward to welcoming you back on board Vita soon. ***
My parents hired this boat for a week, and had a great time sampling the local pubs along the river Wey! My brother and I visited the boat after a family meal and it was lovely! Spacious, but cosy, Alex has really made this a beautiful holiday home for anyone wishing to try something new !
*** Glad you enjoyed your visit to Vita. Thank you for your comments. ***
What a joy! We loved Vita it was a perfect size for our family of 5 (3 adults and 2 tweens!)
From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Alex, gently tutored through until we remembered how to use and manage the narrowboat from previous holidays. Vita was well equipped and easy to handle once we got going,and we were quickly able to navigate the delights of the lovely river Wey. Some small technical problems with the electrical functioning of the boat were quickly dealt with by Alex and her marine engineer, and although this caused a few challenges it did not spoil the overall week for us, and we were grateful for the speedy attention and compensation. One week was ample time to navigate through the locks in both directions, something that we all enjoyed, developing cooperation and teamwork. I’m not a complainer and like to think of myself as the Princess with the Pea, so for added comfort, I’d suggest a mattress topper for the fore end berth.
Many thanks for a memorable holiday.

** Thank you for the review Gianna. All comments are gratefully received; we will look into the Princess and the Pea situation. Maybe a new mattress is required! You said you'd be back and we would be delighted to see you all again. **
We had a great break recently on Vita. A very warm welcome from Alex when we arrived at the marina. The boat was spotless and well equipped the welcome pack was a nice touch. The week we had on board was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed the river Wey and all its delights. Many thanks we totally recommend and we will be back.
** Many thanks for the lovely review Jane. We look forward to seeing you again on board sometime in the future. **
