The fastest way of slowing down! That's what a waterways holiday is all about. It's the perfect antidote to the breakneck pace of modern life.
Our base at Bradford on Avon is perfectly situated to take advantage of some of the most popular cruising waterways across Southern England. Admire the grandeur of the Kennet and Avon Canal. Traverse majestic aqueducts, cling to the valley side with stunning views as the canal winds its way to world-famous Bath. Rise up to the challenge of the famous Caen Hill locks and into the sublime cruising scenery of Wiltshire.
From our smaller boats for holidays with close friends or family, to a big boat for party of 12 and for stag and hen parties, we have designed our boats (many with ensuite facilities) for all types of party; all with exceptionally quiet engines and spacious rear decks.
A short break is the ideal introduction to canal boating. For a Weekend Break of culture and countryside, our base near Bath is the most wonderful location. Plenty of time to see the famous city, enjoy a brilliant evening out, yet still savour the charm of the canalscape through the countryside. But there's no need to go anywhere near civilisation!
If you're looking for something further afield, our other bases are perfectly situated to enjoy the whole of the South of England. At all our bases you cruise through the best countryside England has to offer with charming little villages, magnificent feats of engineering, waterside pubs with moorings away from everything and everyone if you so desire. Take a Midweek Break, gaining an extra day for free, and combine the unmatched rural charm of the Cotswolds and River Thames with a visit to Oxford; cruise along the idyllic Oxford Canal toward Cropredy, or meander along the Avon Valley.
