October 2019 Boating News

June 2019 Boating News

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” 

(Quoted from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”) 

Titania would have been perfectly at home on board “Eglantine” (pictured above) on Midsummer’s day.

Midsomer Maiden

Our boat ride down the Thames was perfect!  We loved seeing the villages from the water. Our captain was kind and patient with us as we asked a lot of questions. It was a very pleasant experience. We enjoyed our hampers, the food was delicious along with the bottle of Champagne. […]

“And what a pleasure it was. Most impressed with your brokerage yesterday. Not the usual set-up I have encountered, far more personal and good to speak to someone who really knows her product – I can see why you are successful.”

May 2019 Boating News

HSC is relocating. While we found this option in the Suffolk marshes (photo above) attractive, it is a little far for the daily commute, even on my new Brompton Electric bike! So in the absence of a suitable floating option, we will be moving to a splendid office on Station Road here in Henley-on-Thames […]
