We only stayed at summer craft for one night but we found the staff very friendly and helpful as useual as we stayed here two years ago, it looks like some major refurbishments are going on as the jetty looks almost new. We absolutely love this place as it is so quaint and quiet Thankyou sue and Staff.
Have just spent a great week on Gainsborough Girl. The boat was pristine and easy to handle. I have spent the last 10 years with Summercraft either on a boat or in one of their cottages and have loved every minute of it. Sue and the staff are brilliant and can't do enough for you. I was sad to hear that they will be not operating a hire fleet anymore but the great news is that the cottages will still be available for rental. Keep up the great work.Ian Abram
It was perfect .. there was 4 adults 2 elderly one 8yo and 2 large dogs . So much room very spacious and lots of lovely views we staying moorlands which came with its own little boat and was on the edge of the water this may worry some with smaller children, they do insist on life jackets which they provide .. the staff were super helpful nothing too much trouble .. plenty of space to park this one came with own parking space .. huge shower down stairs with double bedroom and bathroom upstairs with 2 twin rooms . Lots of storage .. my only issue was my own fault while.thwre was small fencing round the whole home my dogs would jump it so it became a little difficult but not the fault of the site infact they even tried adding extra fencing for me but my dogs are determined !! So meant had to keep them inside a lot more than I wanted but if u have obedient dogs who can't jump 3 ft walls Ur fine ! Also considering the stupid heat it was lovely and cool inside .Lovely recommend more than 5 stars
