Hey all I was wondering if anyone here has hired Astral Light from Herbert Woods in the past. If so what was their experience of her. We have booked her for the end of June for a week.

This will be our first time on the broads but not our first time hiring boats, last year we did the river Ouse and river Cam.

Hi, Welcome to the Forum,

Have not hired Astral Light but have Hired Evening Light, Dazzeling Light and several others over the years and are taking out Weymouth Light next week all from Herbert Woods.

Never had a complaint very good service, friendly people and very helpful hence we return to them often.

Hope this is of some help to you .

Enjoy your holiday and I am sure you will return again once you sample the delights of the Broads as so many of us do. Cheers

Regards
    TJ

Welcome aboard, and congratulations on your choice of boat. I have not hired Astral light but have been on boats of the same design. They are quite spacious, with the exception of the Quarter Berth amidships which is a little claustrophobic.

In my opinion these type of "lowliner" dual steer cruisers offer the best compromise of "boaty" style design and access to most parts of the broads. They handle well, and create low wash and over the last couple of years Herbert Woods have really started to turn their boats out nicely.

Thx for the welcome, yes i guess the cabin midships would be a little claustrophobic, lucky that the two  grand kids are small Smile
