Canal Holiday Guide

Our 'Canal Holiday Guide' is intended to help you relax and enjoy your narrow boat holiday as much as possible. This waterway guide allows you to prepare yourself fully for your adventure on the waterways before you arrive at the marina. 

Any boat handling and navigation instructions given are intended to complement The Boater’s DVD published by the Canal & River Trust, which will be shown to you on arrival, and sent to you as a web link prior to your holiday. 

Our 'Canal Holiday Guide' will also be sent to you via e-mail when you book with us, along with a separate PDF for the particular marina you have chosen, which includes directions, local taxi numbers and more.
