Holiday hireboats

 
Untie the ropes, push off from the banks, and let yourself unwind from the world.
 
Narrowboating is a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Canals are a 4mph stress-free zone, so it doesn't matter if you've never steered a narrowboat before - learning how to is all part of the fun. Fresh air, wildlife, peace & quiet mixed with the exciting challenge of crewing a narrowboat makes this a satisfying and uplifting experience.
 
Holiday hire narrowboats come with all the luxury of floating cottages. Sleep in style with water reflecting through your cabin porthole then, after a hearty breakfast, spend part of your day walking or just drifting peacefully along in your narrowboat.
 
Where to go?
You can hire a narrowboat from centres across Britain. It's a good idea to bear in mind how many locks you want to encounter on your journey - some of the more heavily-locked canals are fascinating but can be exhausting. Most hire boat companies are happy to help you plan your route.
 
What about pets?
Well-behaved pets are welcomed by most hireboat operators.
