Testimonial 1 – Karma Waters – Layla – April 2017

We chartered Layla for five days of cruising the Llangollen Canal between Whitchurch and Llangollen; a great holiday experience! A really interesting piece of the canal network with two aqueducts and three tunnels but only two locks so not too much work. We stayed in Llangollen overnight and took time to visit the town for a day taking in the Horseshoe Falls, a trip on the steam railway and visit to Plas Newydd. On the return we made a stop at Chirk Castle before negotiating the tunnel and aqueduct.

Layla is a fine 58 ft., six-berth narrowboat with an optional three doubles or two doubles and two singles layout with comfortable beds throughout. We collected her at her base at Whixall Marina. The hand-over was thorough and detailed and Bryan covered all eventualities from how to steer and moor to changing over gas cylinders. The boat is well equipped for six and was very clean and tidy on our arrival. Toiletries and teabags are thoughtful additions in case of forgetfulness.

In conclusion I would give both Layla and this stretch of canal five stars; a great combination that has me excited at the prospect of further canal adventures.

Testimonial 2 – Karma Waters & Layla June 2017

We had a wonderful trip with our three kids on “Layla”. We cruised from Whixhall Marina up to Llangollen, which turned out to be a perfect trip when renting the boat for one week. Our kids are still asking when we are going to rent the boat again!
The board is clean, spacious, easy to handle, and equipped like a modern canal boat. Bryan was very helpful and gave basic instructions on how to handle the boat, and also offered to help us during the trip if needed. We went on board on several other narrowboats that were offered for rent, and I can testify that Layla is top class!  
I would highly recommend renting this boat! Feel free to contact me on Twitter ( @runarj ) if you have questions.

Testimonial 3 – Karma Waters & Layla June 2018

To whom it may concern

I have spent many years hoping to one day take a holiday on a narrow boat, but like many people life does not allow the time until my partner said lets do it. After looking on the internet my partner found a boat called “Layla” her base is at Whixall Shropshire on the boarder of England andWales. We arrived Saturday and were given a comprehensive detailed instruction on how the boat worked plus all the safety things we had to know. Mr White explained all questions that we had. All this may seem over the top but it ensured our holiday went without incident. The boat was very well equipped. The cabins were comfortable with plenty of room .Complementary tea, coffee sugar and biscuits were supplied.  Also the shower was a bonus we were able to shower after each journey which was unexpected. On our journey to the Pontcysylite aqueduct we stopped at several places to explore the country side. We found the people very friendly

The Company we hired the boat from was (karmawaterscanalboathire@gmail.com) I can highly recommend  Karmawaters. The seven days were every thing I had hoped it would be.

Thanks  Mr Bryan White
