Pet friendly boat holidays… We think so!

We recently posted about Norfolk Broads boating holidays being an ideal holiday for pet owners.  Recent holiday goers have shown us just how versatile our boats can be for all sorts of pets, and we thought we would share the latest pet pictures with you!

On the 26th of August we welcomed the Simonnet family onto a boat going from the Wootton Wawen marina in Shakespeare Country.  In a week’s break you can expect to cruise to the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, a town drenched in culture and beautiful architecture, as well as being William Shakespeare’s birthplace. From the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal you can journey onto the River Avon, where you can experience countryside cruising, vast skies and moor up at ‘Cotswoldy’ towns such as Bidford and Evesham for some classic pub dining.

A beloved pet of the Simonnet family, ‘Crispy’ the Pekin Duck, was a passenger on this voyage! Armed with a pink frilly nappy, the boat yard was happy to accept this slightly less orthodox feathery companion on board. Just goes to show, you really can take just about anything on your holiday afloat!

With thanks to Dominic Simonnet and his family for supplying us with some lovely images of their boating trip on the Stratford upon Avon Canal, more of which can be seen on our facebook page.
