Autumn, the best time of year to go boating, trees all turning colour, not many other boats around so mooring up is easy and the weather is usually fine. We set off from Norbury, went down the Staffs and Worcs to Kinver, then up the Stourbridge, joined the BCN, down the Wolverhampton flight and back to Norbury. We didn't push it and even tied up for most the day in Brewood. The boat (Axbridge) was good, everything worked, heating was fine. Luckily for us we managed to have this week when the pubs were still open. Norbury Wharf is in a lovely part of England and starting from here there are many routes to chose from which means we will certainly be back and not just because there is a loyalty discount for return bookings!

We have just returned from a week's holiday on narrowboat 'Axbridge'. We have taken narrowboat holidays for many years with various companies; we both felt the week we've just had was excellent. The boat was lovely. Despite the weather, which was atrocious at times, the boat was warm and comfortable. The bad weather didn't put us off at all; we did have a little less time cruising but enjoyed relaxing on the boat very much. Everything needed is provided including a very well equipped kitchen and very comfortable bedding. There are plenty of places to visit on the canal including Market Drayton and the villages of Gnosall and Brewood. Norbury Wharf itself is really nice; there's a lovely tea room if you arrive a little early. It's also a nice place after the holiday before you set off for home. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The video link sent in advance to replace the normal boat walk-through was very helpful too. The Shropshire Union is a great canal for experienced boaters and those new to narrowboat holidays, but mooring up can sometimes be awkward; the way it is built (with a ledge just under the water) means it can be sometimes difficult to moor up in the middle of nowhere and we often ended up using town or village moorings which are built better. My only suggestion would be to provide side fenders for the boat; every boat we've hired before has had these provided to make for better mooring. None of the Norbury boats have these provided which means over night mooring can sometimes be a little bumpy; however this really is a very small issue. It was a lovely holiday on a lovely boat, and Norbury Wharf's independence from the usual big narrowboat hire companies is also a real bonus.

We arrived and were greeted by very friendly staff who then showed us to a well presented vessel. The facilities were ideal for making bacon butties and for lots of drinks to keep us warm. We would highly recommend the Navigation Inn and Gnosall for lunch The boat was ideal for our family consisting of 3 generations. It gave some of the family an opportunity to 'take the helm' for the very first time. A very enjoyable and memorable day. Thank you

Norbury wharf is a friendly and welcoming venue. I have only ever hired one their day boats, they are always clean and well equipped. So I assume that their holiday boats would be of equal quality. They provide sufficient training so that you can enjoy your day out and I assume for their holiday boats also. Highly recommended.
