Our narrowboat will be ready to hire from summer 2018 and we think there are lots of reasons you’ll want to book her for a holiday! Here are our top ten…

1. Romantic retreat for two

The ultimate romantic getaway, all year round.

  • snug, king-sized bed and deep mattress
  • full shower
  • modern lighting
  • away from the crowds

2. Inspiring scenery

Enjoy the peaceful and unspoiled waterways and wake up to a different view every day. A narrowboat holiday is perfect, if you need to slow down for a few days; share the landscape with the wildlife and farm animals – you may see no other humans for a while 

3. All abilities

Full training provided for complete novices as well as experienced boaters. We provide training on handling the boat, as well as teach you how to open locks and navigate the waterways.
