Activities

Canal cruising is fun and easy to learn. Narrowboat life is friendly too – we like to think of the canal network as a linear village surrounded by flowers and trees, wildlife and of course plenty of pretty pubs along the way! ‘It’s as if your whole life slows down and you forget all about the city life’.

All group members are eligible to hire out the narrowboat during the year and can take friends and family as crew.

Facilities

Our narrowboat is 61 feet long. ‘Savoy Hill’ sleeps 7 people in 3 separate cabins which can be configured as single or double berths. It has two flush toilets and a shower and is fully equipped with a microwave, conventional cooker, fridge, and central heating. The boat has LED lighting throughout, USB charging sockets, two televisions with built in DVD players and extra storage.
