Testimonials

One of the most peaceful and calming places that you are likely to visit. Beautiful sunsets, tranquil surroundings and lots of wildlife all around you. Friendly, Helpful and knowledgeable staff and residents and just a lovely place to be and also why I call it home.
Andy Wilkins | Lowertown Lad (May 2017)
This is a boaters Marina not just a place to put your boat! Knowledgable friendly staff and a very pleasant town with good facilities just a short walk away make this a great place to be. Thanks for a lovely winter stay.
Graham Rollett | KBO (March 2017)
We were all well pleased with the Jazz Night on Friday. It is a lovely room for such an occasion and the company, the food and the music all helped make it a really good evening. Thank you again for letting us use the room.

Hinckley Sea Cadets – Sponsored Walk – 3 September 2016
I have been asked to write to you to thank you for the use of your facilities at the Marina by our cadets during their sponsored walk from our unit to Sutton Cheney and back.
The cadets had a fantastic time on the day, despite the weather, it looks like we will be raising several hundred pounds to be split between ourselves and the Mayor’s charity. The use of your facilities was a welcome haven for them....Thank you again for your generous support .

David Lewis | Hinckley Sea Cadets (September 2016)
Having been moored up in the Marina for approx 18 months I can only say good things about the place. Chris & Jane are very helpful & the Trivett family who own the marina are all fantastic. The facilities are outstanding and kept in immaculate condition. The boaters lounge is a great place to socialise or just to relax in & enjoy the amazing views.
Lee Gardner | The Jolly Bodger (August 2016)
I would like to thank the owners of the new, beautiful Bosworth Marina for allowing me to present a concert of my talented piano students. We all really enjoyed performing in the fantastic building and we came away with lots of happy music making memories. Thank you so much.
Nancy Honor-Wright | (June 2016)
One friendly phone call and we were booked in. Then a friendly welcome.
Thank you Chris & Jane.
Quiet spot, open, well planned with great sunset views. Eco friendly building, spotlessly clean toilets & showers.

Jill & Rob Pendleton | Chrissie ( June 2016)
We have really enjoyed being moored, for about 18 months, at Bosworth Marina. It is in a beautiful location on a quite canal and the marina is very clean and tidy. We have also seen the site blossom from a building site to a fully fledged well run marina. Your Customer Service is second to none and the marina team, particularly Chris and Jane, should be rightly proud of what you have achieved.
Steve & Steph McGrath | Dormouse ( June 2016)
We arrived on a wet & windy afternoon to a very nice welcome from happy, smiley Jane. The facilities are amazing and we found everything to be perfect. We are loving it here and it is definitely the best decision we have made in a long time.
Gill & Dale Faulkes | Diamond Lady ( June 2016)
Just a quick not to thank Chris & Jane for all your help and kindness you afforded us on our arrival at the marina and the subsequent few days, but most of all for your patience throughout the time before we arrived.
Steve & Martin | Chough (May 2016)
We would like to thank Chris & Jane for your help and welcome to the marina during our short stay. We look forward to seeing you when we next pass by.
George & Sandy Goodwin | Queenborough (May 2016)
The marina is set in a fantastic location and all of the Staff are most helpful. The facilities are of a very high spec and the shop is well stocked. The marina is also dog friendly with some lovely walks right on the doorstep.
Reginald Hazel | Florence (May 2016)
Wonderful, Friendly & helpful staff.
Used all of the facilities - so fresh & clean.

Pat & Derek | (April 2016)
We are continuous cruisers but spend the winter months in a marina for a little 'luxury'. Of all the marinas we have stayed at we have found Bosworth to be the most friendly and welcoming. All the staff put themselves out to assist your needs and are most helpful in every respect. The facilities are more than adequate and are kept in pristine condition, the shop is well stocked to cover most day to day needs and is reasonably priced.
We would like to thank Jane, Chris and all the staff for a pleasant stay over winter.

Mick and Elaine | Largesse (April 2016)
We have been on the marina for six months and can not recommend it highly enough, Jane and Chris are really friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The facilities are of the highest standard and very, very clean. There are some really pleasant walks around, including a walk into Market Bosworth. All in all if you are planning to cruise the Ashby Canal this is the marina to head for.
Tim and Julie | Scallywag (April 2016)
We arrived at Bosworth Marina last November.
The management are very nice and friendly couple who will put themselves out to help you with anything.
There is a cosy coffee lounge and a little shop consisting of some Chandlery and food.
The other moorers are a friendly bunch.

Chris and Anne | Heron II (April 2016)
Having met Jane and Chris, the management team at Bosworth Marina ten years ago when we first brought our boat we have twice since experienced the great friendly service that they provide. It was a no brainer when we needed to come into a marina as I was due to have an operation that would leave me bed ridden for a couple of months and all the boat work would be left to my good lady wife Terena. They did not disappoint, nothing was too much trouble. Coal and Gas was all brought onboard for us and all the help Terena needed was freely offered not just by the management team but by many friendly boaters who use this lovely marina. Having originally come into the marina for my recuperation period, we have been so impressed by the facilities, staff and local area 'Carpe Diem' now has a new home.
Two very happy boaters

Stu and Terena West | Carpe Diem (April 2016)
Chris & Jane thank you so much for all of your help and advice you have given over the last few months during our boat buying process. The people you have recommended and your advice throughout this has certainly made the entire process so much easier.
We researched many marinas before deciding on Bosworth and although we have only been here a short time our decision has definitely proved to be the right one!
Now we are safely moored at Bosworth Marina we look forward to spending as much time as possible with you all.

Paul & Dee Webb | The Waltz (April 2016)
I got into the marina with a lot of praying just after 9am as my belt was hanging on by a thread. The lovely marina staff found an equally lovely boater to take my belt to Hinckley to source a new one. While he was doing that I got dieseled up and was given a mooring for a day. I then got two loads of washing going in their spotless laundry by the time my hero returned with the right size belt (it cost half the price my wrong size one did!) I then went to fit it but couldn't quite get it to fit so another boater immediately came over and did it for me! All fixed and working I then spent the rest of the day watering up and getting rid of rubbish.
Oh and the 24 hour mooring with unlimited electric cost just £12. So I have the luxury of this warm and welcoming marina tonight and back on the cut in the morning.

Mandy Wright | (April 2016)
I have been at Bosworth Marina now for 8 months and have loved my time here. Chris, Jane and the Trivett family are all very friendly and really helpful, nothing is too much trouble for any of them.
The boaters lounge has a TV, coffee machine and free WIFI and is a great place to socialise with the other boaters or just to relax and enjoy the wonderful views.

Gordon Ward | Dusk (March 2016)
Our boat has now been moored in Bosworth Marina for 11 months and we love it here. Excellent location on a scenic, tranquil canal and delightful views from the boat over farmland. Well stocked shop and chandlery. Chris and Jane, who manage the marina, are a great couple; good fun and nothing is too much trouble for them. Fellow boaters are friendly and always willing to lend a hand or offer advice. Just a 15 minute walk to Market Bosworth, a really pleasant little market town.
Robin, Julie and Erich Ross | Miss - E - Moo (March 2016)
Having been in other marinas since getting my narrowboat I am so delighted to have found a Marina where the staff are friendly, helpful and always ready for a laugh. The full length pontoons are a blessing having been on 2/3rd pontoons which are a pain, the facilities are excellent and always kept clean.
Although the site is still to be finished it isn't detrimental to the overall experience of the Marina, even the wildlife is friendly.
I am so glad to have found such a brilliant Marina!!

Ken | Myemvee (March 2016)
Thank you for making me so welcome on the marina. Chris for delivering my coal when I had my op & all of your concern when I lost Nell.
Liz | Nimrod (March 2016)
I would like to thank you for the lovely Marina you have all worked so hard to build. The facilities are better than a five star hotel, showers, toilets and laundry are above and beyond anything I could have expected.
A boaters lounge so stylish and comfortable and a great meeting place for all the new and old friends here.
The friendly and helpful attitude of Helen, Josh, Ben, Chris and Jane could not be bettered. It is obvious that a lot of thoughtfulness has gone into providing a Marina that would be hard to beat for good old fashioned attention to detail and customer service.

Rose Brown | Gannet (March 2015)
We stopped off for a couple of days and loved the place & the people. We will definitely be visiting again.
Patrica & David | Delta (February 2015)
I am very new to boating and have this as my first experience of a marina.
I can not say enough to express how happy I have been and how welcome I have been made to feel. People have been so helpful and Chris the manager has been helpful with advice in such a way that I've not felt foolish to ask questions that may seem stupid to experienced boaters.
The location is fantastic with so much to do locally.

Rod Sharpe | Chells Dream (February 2015)
We visited Bosworth Marina today and have to say how impressed we are with the design & the Facilities are ace!
More important the staff are amazing.
Looking forward to a return visit.

Debbie & Chris Will | ( January 2015)
Since our arrival in September we have felt extremely welcome at the marina. Anything we need, Chris and Jane have responded immediately and nothing is too much trouble.
We have met most boaters and have found them friendly and helpful. We enjoy the short walk to Market Bosworth as it is unspoilt and welcoming. Also the battlefield is well worth a visit and we are looking forward to visiting other local attractions.
On the whole Bosworth Marina gets the thumbs up from us.

Lesley & Gordon | Smidsey (January 2015)
Since getting our boat 5 ½ years ago we have been in three marinas. We have always liked the area of Market Bosworth & were pleased when the marina was announced.
From what we have seen so far the facilities are first class. We have found the staff very approachable, friendly & helpful, nothing seems too much trouble. We are looking forward to spending many years here.

Jo Verow | Vita Nova (January 2015)
Adams Apple and Skipper arrived early on October 1st.
I went onto a temporary berth while mine was finished.
Moved onto my berth a couple of weeks later after a trip up to the top of the Ashby.
You are never sure what a new marina will be like but straight away you are made welcome by Chris the marina manager and his wife Jane. The boss Helen came round to say hello and chat about how things are progressing.
They all have one thing in common, friendly and welcoming. What more can you ask for.
Lovely people, on a lovely marina, on a lovely canal.

Richard | Adams Apple (December 2014)
We are delighted with our new home. The thought of all aspects of the marina has created a pleasant environment for us & our family. The best of all was the master stroke of finding Chris & Jane here as they are the catalyst that drives the spirit of the community we all want.
Rosi & Steve | Double Trouble (December 2014)
It is the best Marina that we have ever been moored in.
Susan Powell | Lord Llangattock (December 2014)
From the moment we entered the marina we have been aware of a feeling of friendship and warmth. All of the people, boaters, staff and workforce have been most helpful and understanding of our needs. With the bus stop just outside the marina gates, local amenities and connections to places further afield are within easy reach.
Pat and Mick Allcock | Witchington (November 2014)
We love it! Such a lovely, open space and easy to manoeuvre the boats in and out. Market Bosworth itself is a great Town with everything we could wish for, including a very convenient bus service. To summarise, we couldn't have picked a better, more friendly place and we are more than happy to leave our boat knowing it's secure.
Jen and Brian | Gentle Jane (November 2014)
We were delighted to discover a marina was being developed at Market Bosworth as this had been one of our favourite destinations on the Ashby canal.
The marina boasts many features that are desirable for boaters in the modern age. There is plenty of parking close to the pontoons, the pontoons are full length up to seventy feet long and each has electricity and water provided. The free water space is amazingly generous which means that manoeuvring in and out of the berths is extremely easy. Of course having a well designed marina is one thing but you still want to feel welcome and that is where Helen, Chris, Jane and the rest of the team really excel with customer care.

George and Sue Kennedy | Caxton (November 2014)
We first made contact with Bosworth Marina in March 2014. All of our requests have been answered in a helpful, friendly and professional manner. Helen, Chris and Jane are a credit to the company. We moved in on October 1 and have been very happy with the marina. All the fellow moorers we have been met have been friendly with a pleasant community feel among the boaters. We look forward to a long and happy relationship with Bosworth Marina.
Jen and Pete Kirchoff | Old Harry (November 2014)
Everyone here is friendly and the staff here are absolutely brilliant and nothing is too much trouble to help and/or advise me.
I am pleasantly surprised at just how long the mains electric hook-up meter credits last, which to be honest was my only real concern whilst moving here from Daventry, Northants. I attend the Market Bosworth Free Church every Sunday and the local parishioners are keen to learn more about this fantastic new marina here on the 22 mile lock-free Ashby Canal here at Market Bosworth.
