Luxury Narrowboat holidays and Self-Drive Canal Boat Hire

This fleet of luxury narrowboats is situated at the heart of Warwickshire’s picturesque countryside. Half of our fully-equipped canal boats are moored in Stockton, a marina surrounded by the scenic views of rural England, which provides a perfect destination to begin your tranquil countryside escape. Stockton has many footpaths and country pubs, just waiting to be visited. Alternatively, the other half of our high-quality fleet are moored within the historical town of Warwick. As well as the taverns and boutique shops, Warwick is renowned for its castle and ancient relics; the town holds much history and is great to explore, making the start of your journey a uniquely antiquated and quaint experience.

If you would like to begin your holiday in the authentic town of Warwick, or in the peaceful surroundings of rural Stockton, the deluxe fleet of narrowboats caters for all; whether you’re planning a fun-filled family adventure, a tranquil weekend getaway, or to simply while away the hours cruising down the canal and letting the rolling landscapes pass you by, the choice is yours!
