You can enjoy a holiday on one of our boats March through to October.  Our holiday boats are designed to take passengers with a wide variety of mobility difficulties and health conditions.

Self Drive Holidays on Melody

Melody our self hire boat and has been providing boat holidays for many years and proves to be a popular holiday choice. She is suitable for those wanting the freedom to travel independently and meander the canals at their own leisure. Ideally suited for those with some skippering experience; we ensure there is an adequate hand over with our resident skipper on your first day who will guide you through a lock and show you where everything is on the boat and won't leave you until you feel confident to navigate on your own.

Melody is suitable for up to six passengers and available for holidays from Friday through to Thursday. 

We encourage you to arrange a visit to our base if you'd like to ensure Melody is suitable for your requirements.  Due to her being a narrow boat there are width restrictions on board and this may be needed to be borne in mind.

If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact the office.

Please note: Melody is currently undergoing a full refurbishment so is unavailable this season.

Skippered holidays on Serenade

We offer a unique service to our users; our full time skipper, Chris, stays on board in his own cabin and takes groups of up to ten passengers (families, residential or community groups) on a four day holiday along the waterways.  Over the years we have had many parties embrace this opportunity and they return year after year.

Chris has the knowledge of the many eateries along the waterways as well as special mooring spots to enjoy the scenery and creates a truly bespoke holiday experience for each group.  He is fully DBS checked, trained in health and safety and a first aider.

Please do bear in mind, some members of the party will be required to help with the locks so need to be physically able to assist.

Serenade is available for groups of up to ten passengers and holidays run from a Monday morning to Friday.
