Luxury Narrowboat Holidays and Self Drive Canal Boat Hire

A narrowboat on the canal, a customer on a canal holiday
Narrowboat holidays in the Heart of England. Rent a canal boat and experience the magic.

Whether you’re looking for a family holiday with a difference or just want to unwind and take life at a more tranquil pace, each boat in our luxury narrowboat holiday fleet provides a level of comfort and convenience that is normally associated with privately owned narrowboats.

Don’t forget the boat is the holiday, you don’t need to allow for those expensive days out during the week! Our quoted prices INCLUDE diesel and damage waiver (and linen and car parking) – if you are comparing prices with other narrowboat holiday firms make sure you compare like for like!

Dogs and canals go together, the dogs can just be part of the holiday. We have our own dogs and are well aware of the scenario when you are on a self catering holiday and go out for the day. You spend lots of time worrying about where you can stop, will the dogs be able to get out, you want to have a look at something and it is too hot for the dogs to stop in the car – is this familiar? On the boat you can just relax and know they are ok, apart from the odd unintentional swim!

Star ratings for each narrowboat are displayed on the relevant pages, and online availability and reservation is now also a feature, but please feel free to phone or email if you would like to discuss your canal holiday plans.
