Canalside cottages

Steep yourself in the real world of the waterways and stay in a historic canalside cottage.
Many were once a lock-keeper's home and it's easy to be romanced by the rich history of the waterways.
A weekend away in a canalside cottage invites you soak up the life of the waterways, enjoy the slow activity of the day, followed by the stillness after dusk, until the dawn chorus wakes you again.
