Cosy canal boat winter holidays


Winter cruising on the Trent & Mersey Canal

Take a narrowboat holiday with a difference this winter and enjoy the canals in a unique setting. The scenery on the canals in the winter months is picture-perfect with frosty mornings, calm waterways and crispy towpaths. It’s not just the scenery that makes a winter canal boat holiday appealing, it’s a chance to slow down, with shorter cruising times of around 4 hours a day, there’s plenty of time to stop off and enjoy a nice pub meal by an open fire before making your way back to your cosy, floating home for the evening.

‘Bridie Bear’ Stove


Whatever the weather, you’ll be nice and warm on-board. All of our narrowboats have central heating and hot water; some even feature a stove heater for an extra-cosy winter break. With TV/DVD players on the majority of boats you can enjoy a nice evening snuggled up watching a film in front of the stove. Don’t forget to bring your warm winter clothing and make the most of what will be a memorable boating holiday!
