UK Short Breaks

A short break on a narrowboat is perfect to unwind and one of our three or four night breaks is plenty to get used to the slow pace of life and enjoy a holiday afloat.

We have short break boats available from all start bases, each with a number of splendid routes to choose from. Take a three night weekend break starting on Friday, or a four night midweek break starting on Monday for the same price. Remember these boats are also available for weekly hire and, by adding a short break to a week you can also take a longer break of ten to eleven nights.
