Come on board and start your 2022 summer adventure

11th May 2022

With Spring 2022 very much with us, the sun shining and the summer holiday season rapidly approaching, it would be difficult to find a more relaxing holiday this summer than a trip on one of our narrowboats. All boats have completed winter maintenance programs, they have been freshly painted and spring cleaned ready for your summer adventures.




You are free to choose from the array of routes available from our base at Weedon on the Grand Union Canal. Pick and choose attractions and places that interest you along your route through the stunning scenic countryside. With most places now open you can visit and enjoy attractions from the comfort of your own narrowboat. The vast array of routes that are available cover short breaks ideal for novices wanting to take out a canal boat for the first time, through to extended trips to match your needs. 


All of our Grand Union Narrowboats are designed around your needs and provide you with a “home from home” giving you your own space to retreat to where you can unwind and go at your own pace. Free to do what you want, the well equipped galley kitchen allows you to self cater on board and enjoy home cooking. Alternatively eat out at one of the numerous canal side restaurants and pubs taking in the unique atmosphere.


You can book for a weekend 3 night break, a 4 night short week, a 7 night full week through to longer multiples as required. This gives you flexibility to match your needs. Full details are on our website.
