Autumn is not only a great time for families but for couples to get away too. We have a selection of cosy two-berth narrowboats, some featuring solid-fuel stoves on the UK canals and a selection of two-berth cruisers on the Norfolk Broads. So whether you prefer the meandering canals or the wide open waters of the Broads, we’ve got you covered for your autumn boating break.
Here are our top recommendations for couples:
Cruise the Cotswolds
What could be more appealing than cruising through a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? The Kennet & Avon Canal runs through many historic, picturesque villages, set amongst rolling hills and farmland. Visit the medieval buildings in Devizes or the unspoilt market town of Bradford on Avon on the way to Bath. Stop here to visit the Thermae Bath Spa, Roman Baths and the cathedral before indulging in some retail therapy.
Boating in the Brecon Beacons
A true rural escape cruising through the some of the most beautiful scenery in the Brecon Beacons. The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is also very suitable for couples, with only 6 locks in its entire length, making for a very relaxing break away. Cruise peacefully through the hilly landscape, past quaint villages, country pubs and unspoilt views. Take a walk through the Beacons; find the breathtaking Blaen y Glyn waterfalls or stop off at the historic market town of Crickhowell to visit the 13th Century castle.
Navigating the Norfolk Broads
There’s something for everyone on the Norfolk Broads whether you like long country walks, wildlife spotting, or country pubs. The options are endless on the Broads; choose from visiting the villages and independent shops or cruising to the wide open waters and finding the quietest mooring for the evening. Dine at the numerous pubs and restaurants or choose to eat on board away from the crowds in your own secluded spot.
