Grab a Twixmas canal boat holiday bargain!

For a Twixmas holiday with a difference, Waterways Holidays suggests exploring the canals and rivers of the UK with a stay on board a narrowboat.


A great way to get away between Christmas & the New Year

‘Avocet’ and ‘Dabchick’, for example, are both well equipped 55ft narrowboats sleeping six based at Hillmorton near Rugby in Warwickshire.

A choice of cruising routes is available from Hillmorton – including lock free cruising along the North Oxford and Ashby Canals or with locks along the South Oxford or Grand Union Canals.

Four nights’ hire – starting 27 December 10 – costs £750 inclusive of diesel, two bottles of gas, car parking, bed linen, cancellation protection and tuition on arrival.  Up to two well behaved pets are welcome – the first is free of charge, the second for a cost of £15.  0845 127 1020,
