Stylish holidays & days out aboard Britain's finest self drive narrowboats


to your holiday!

Welcome to the wonderful world of inland waterways, the fastest way of slowing down! For the best of narrowboat holidays and short breaks in Bath and on the Kennet & Avon Canal, Wiltshire Narrowboats offers great holidays for families, friends and groups. We also welcome Stag and Hen parties.

Wiltshire Narrowboats, part of Oxfordshire Narrowboats, is proudly independent. We offer a real voice at the end of the phone to help you choose the right boat and the best of locations for your valuable escape from the pressures of modern day living! Based in Bradford on Avon, near Bath, our boats are fully equipped with everything you might need, from phone charging points and DVD players, to all your bed linen and washing up kit... all you need to do is bring your own personal clothing, food and drink provisions, and a sense of fun!

Your holiday is one of the safest on water - we even have a 24hr manned emergency callout phone for your added peace of mind - and we willingly provide buoyancy aids for children and non-swimmers. Full tuition is provided so that even a total novice will set off feeling confident about their first waterway adventure!

We are really proud of our new website! Here you can make and pay for your bookings online for hoidays around Bath and Bradford-on-Avon, on the Kennet & Avon Canal, send emails to us, view boat plans and browse our wonderful galleries of carefully selected images to give you a feel of your holiday with us. Don't forget our booking office is manned 9am to 4pm daily except at winter weekends. We welcome viewing at our Bradford-on-Avon base but recommend you call us first to check your choice of boat is not already out on hire!

We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
