Bridgewater Canal Holidays

Relax and enjoy a Bridgewater Canal Holiday. Enjoy a long weekend with your friends or family on a stylish widebeam canal boat holiday without the stresses and strains of skippering your own narrowboat. We do the driving!

The boat sleeps up to four and is fitted out with a stylish bedroom & house bathroom, a fully fitted kitchen, dining area and gorgeous lounge with sofa bed, multi-fuel fire and TV.

Remember that the skipper, Steve, sometimes lives on-board and has a separate bedroom, bathroom & front door. Guests have exclusive access to the rest of the boat through the main door at the back of the boat and will not be disturbed during your cruise.

Our choice of skippered canal boat holidays along the Bridgewater Canal offer an unforgettable experience:
