Our Narrowboats

Our 2, 4, 6 and 8-berth purpose-built, 4 star narrowboats, are available for hire from our easily accessed base at Weedon. You can be confident of having a canal boat holiday to remember, taking in the delights of the canals of Great Britain.

Routes you can take

From Weedon ...More >there is an amazing choice of routes for your narrowboat hire including gems such as the Oxford Canal, the Ashby Canal, the River Thames and, of course, our personal favourite – the Grand Union Canal, cruising either north along the stunningly beautiful Leicester line of the Grand Union Canal through Watford Locks, Market Harborough and Foxton locks or perhaps south through the amazing Blisworth Tunnel and the quintessentially English canal side village of Stoke Bruerne and on southwards towards the Chilterns. See more information on routes you can take with our boats..

New to canal boating?

We understand that for some the prospect of taking to the helm of your narrowboat hire together with the operation of the canal locks can seem a little daunting! DON’T PANIC. We are very thorough on our handovers, as well as showing how all the controls on the boat work to ensure ALL our novice customers get practical steering tuition along with instruction and help with your first locks. We feel this is very important as the sooner you feel at ease with the practicalities of a canal boat holiday the sooner to can start to enjoy the delights of England’s waterways.
