My husband ( Tim ) and I have lived in Woodham Walter for 18 years.

We stumbled across this wonderful location when we were first looking for our own narrowboat - which we subsequently bought and is still moored at Hoe Mill Lock. Her name is Isabella - much smaller than Willow, but another stunning boat.

We spend a lot of spare time Canal boating, Walking and Cycling in the Village - we love using the cycle paths alongside the canal, regular cycling or walking into Maldon. You’ll also find us frequenting the local pubs - so lucky to have such a great choice in such a small village.

We look forward to welcoming you onboard “Willow” and will be on hand should you need help or recommendations.
