Fabulous long weekend with great friends on a fabulous boat. Just terrific! Pin Mill is absolute magic - so peaceful and quiet. The boat is terrific, cosy, warm and so well equipped. Denise is a wonderful asset - so welcoming and helpful. It was a terrific way to start the weekend. Thanks 10/10!
We tried to find a special place to send off our beautiful sister before her wedding next week, and special and beautiful we found! Thank you for a warm, supportive and absolutely perfect weekend. Life is about special moments such as these!
What a wonderful few days celebrating my 60th with family and friends. After a lovely welcome from Denise we settled into Endeavour and let the party begin! So many lovely places to visit locally and so many dog walks right from the door! We've had a wonderful time - a very comfortable, well equipped boat....we will return! Thank you.
Great way to celebrate a 'biggie' birthday! Three generations plus dog all had great walks; beautiful, peaceful area. Many birds - nearest to be seen was an egret! Thank you.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for a great stay on Endeavour this weekend. It was the perfect treat for my partners 50th and she loved it, as did her folks and kids. It was so nice, especially in this weather to sit in the top living space with the doors and windows open, with the wonderful natural habitat all around us - with a hint of seaweed of course, to remind us we were afloat - just fabulous. What an amazing pub next door, superb fish n chips! Will definitely be in touch to stay again. Many thanks.
Brilliant location for a relaxing few days. Sitting by the table looking up the river is a treat. Pretty wild as Storm Doris came across us! Funky spot and beautiful area.
What a fabulous boat. Clean, tidy and very warm. Denise & Pete made sure our stay was very welcoming. The local pub is great and the people have some great stories. We would come again.
Very relaxing and quirky. Great place to celebrate my birthday with family (including dog). Denise & Pete were very helpful. Hope to come back.
Wonderful weekend away. Quirky and full of character.Lots of places to go to, plenty of walking areas. Denise gave us a fantastic welcome, despite us being later than expected. Thank you so much.
We had a cosy stay. Enjoyed sitting by the stove after a long walk. Food at the Butt & Oyster is great, glad we booked ahead!
We have had such a fun time here in sunshine and storm! A really unusual place - no need to venture far from the call of the curlew! Thank you.
Thank you Denise for such a warm welcome upon arrival at a most inviting and cosy clipper. A beautiful peaceful and serene location. Butt & Oyster definitely worth a visit. Walk to Woolverstone Marina and back via St Michael's church recommended - beautiful scenery.
Many thanks for a wonderful stay in unique surroundings. What a privilege to experience, even only for a few days, life on a clipper. Thank you.
Wow! An amazing place to stay to discover this lovely part of the world. A lovely weekend spent with friends on this beautiful boat.
Wow! We loved our stay on your beautiful boat. Everything has been thought of. It was such a cosy way to spend a weekend and we were blessed with beautiful weather. Lots of lovely walks and great pints at the pub. Thanks so much to Denise for your warm welcome.
It was an incredibly special experience to wake in the morning to the sun rising over the harbour, step onto the jetty and feel that we had really been out to sea! The hamlet of Pin Mill is picture perfect. We felt instantly part of the boat community despite our lack of actual sails. Picturesque dog walks in all directions - we didn't want to leave.
We've enjoyed a unique non sailing boat experience! Quite idyllic setting. We recommend cycling to Shotley marina (through the National Trust woods and hugging the shoreline - bit bumpy but beautiful all the way). Walking to Woolverstone marina then up the hill and back across the fields. Visiting Languard Fort (English Heritage, excellent audio tour and we could take the dog in!). Fascinating for history of the estuary area. Back again soon!
Thank you Denise for a great welcome, very cosy and relaxing time had by all 3 of us on the Endeavour (2 + dog!). Great walks, scenery and pub food and fun dodging the rising tide! Will be back again!
A thoroughly enjoyable time beginning with the very warm welcome from Denise. We loved the quirky atmosphere of the boat and it's location to the pub. Completely relaxing, peaceful and serene with no passing traffic noise. Good local walks but just enjoyed watching the birds and changing scenery as the tide ebbed and flowed. Loved it and will definitely return!!
Wonderful walks from all directions from the door. Wonderful food and beer at the Butt & Oyster, topped off by a cosy nights sleep on Endeavour. A perfect get away from it all weekend, less than an hour from home! Thank you!
The perfect way to celebrate our 30th anniversary, starting with a very welcoming tour from Denise. Wonderful walks from all directions from the door, wonderful food and beer at the Butt & Oyster, topped off with cosy nights on the Endeavour. A perfect "get away from it all" weekend and less than an hour from home! Thank you.
Denise gave us a great welcome, very lovely person who even offered to help with our bags. The dog treats were such a nice touch as where the chocolates. Love the quirkiness of the boat and all the original old features and what lovely views to get u to each morning! We have enjoyed our stay.
Wow! What do I say. We have had a fantastic time here at the Endeavour in this blissful location. The boat is beautiful. Pin Mill is a great base with fantastic dog walks in all directions. We recommend the walk down to Shotley Point with some amazing views and a great pub, The Shipwreck at the end! The Butt & Oyster is a great pub with places to sit and watch the boats and tide come in. We didn't want to leave and will certainly come back, love Heather, Andy, Milly, Bertie & Belle xxx
