“Just wanted to thank you from all of us for the boat trip on Saturday. We had a wonderful time it was one of the best family days out we have ever had. As usual the food was excellent and you made it all very informative and entertaining. We were lucky with the weather and the scenery was lovely. ”


“Thank you both so much for such a wonderful time. We all loved it and the children have already been asking to come back again! Thanks again.”
