Luxury narrowboat holidays on the Grand Union Canal – experience the magic of Britain’s Waterways

Narrowboat holidays and canal boat breaks

The canals of the Heart of England are one of the UK’s best kept holiday secrets, a way to get out into the depths of the English countryside, escape from the rat race, move back into another pace of life, without leaving behind the niceties of modern life, like a fully equipped kitchen, TV,  central heating and 240 volt electric supply!

Don’t forget that the boat is the holiday, so once you are aboard there is no need to spend   on those expensive days out that you often need from a self catering break. You can take your food with you (or have it delivered to the boat at the start of your holiday), and then choose whether to cook aboard, or to try the canal side pubs, or a combination of both.

Select a  cruising route that suits what you want from a boating holiday, the Warwickshire ring makes for an energetic week, or a very relaxed fortnight,  it is about being on the boat, rather than how far you can get.
