Lazy days afloat

You don't have to spend a fortune to get afloat! If you're not sure whether you'll enjoy the waterway life, try it out with family or friends for the day! Our easy-to-operate dayboats at Bradford-on-Avon are close to beautiful, historic Bath. With full safety features and training provided, our own special design of narrowboat allows accommodation for all weathers for up to 10 people. They are easy to handle and fully enclosed with large picture windows. All have a toilet and crockery, cutlery and glassware as well as a two ring hob and central heating radiator onboard. Dayhire is from 09.30 to 17.30 only and a £200 refundable cash deposit is taken on arrival against the boat's safe and clean return on time.

Picnics Afloat
Moor up in the countryside and spread a blanket out on the grass to savour a special day out. Celebrate your special occasion with friends and family - the boats are sociable areas with lots of room to chat as you cruise along. An all-weather covered foredeck allows you to still admire the scenery without getting wet! Folding chairs can be moved around - even ashore for comfortable dining!

Children Welcome
Let the children take part! They will love to help work the locks, run along the towpath, or even steer the boat under supervision - this is truly a waterway adventure for all ages! We provide buoyancy aids and full instruction to enjoy your day in safety!
