  Weekend Breaks

We are able to offer weekend cruises on the canals from 2pm Friday finishing at 9.30am Monday.

These cruises are available aboard Friday start boats. The boat may be picked up any time between 2pm and 3.30pm on Friday (after 3.30 pm by prior arrangement) and returned Sunday evening instead of Monday morning.

Midweek Breaks

Hire starts at 2pm on Monday and finishes at 9.30am on a Friday.

Saturday boats may be booked for shorter periods than a week but these can only be confirmed at two weeks notice. Please telephone with your requirements.

To ensure clean and reliable boats for your holiday we employ an experienced team of cleaners and service engineers.
All sheets, duvets, pillowcases and blankets are washed by our local launderette.
