Types of Boat Hire

Rosette and Shop

The general concept of a holiday was about taking a period of time for leisure and recreation, especially one spent away from home or in travelling. This holiday was always deemed to be from Saturday to Saturday however in the modern era, that we are now in, flexibility is the key.

We still offer the Saturday to Saturday narrowboat hire holidays but we also offer so much more. Please see the various pages of this website which are shortened below.

If you want a variation on the dates/times we offer please get in touch we can usually accommodate most circumstances.

Overseas Visitors

Newbold Tunnel

Overseas visitors make up about one third of all our holiday boat hire customers and quite a few of them return year after year. You can be assured of a warm welcome when you arrive. We are well located in a very attractive part of England with excellent transport connections to and from the major airports (London Heathrow, Birmingham International and Manchester).

Winter Cruising

Evening Sunset

During winter the canals are wonderfully peaceful and you get a wholly different perspective as with no leaves on the trees your vistas are extended magnificently.

Our cosy canal cruising boats are centrally heated, and you will find many snug canal side pubs to welcome you along the way.
