Dine under the stars

Many of our boats have great sundecks where you can enjoy being outside with your family and friends. Start looking forward to balmy evenings, with a glass of wine, freshly prepared food and good conversation with those you’ve missed this year.

Lazy days and active ways

There’s nothing quite like the pace of the river or canal to help you slow down and get some much needed R&R. And for the restless among you – you can throw yourself into the countless active pursuits on offer in many of our cruising regions if you wish. From horse-riding and biking – to playing golf and fishing… and most things in between!

Who knows the ropes?

You don’t need any prior experience to go on a boating holiday. So if you haven’t tried it, maybe this year is the perfect opportunity to try a ‘summer holiday’ with a difference.

Adore the outdoors

Allow our boats to take you to amazing outdoor spaces where you can keep your distance, breath the fresh air and have fun. You can wake up in a new location each day; explore beautiful parks and gardens; the sprawling grounds of stately homes, palaces and castles.

Make a splash

Nothing says "summer" like taking a dip. Many of our cruising regions have river where there are safe places to swim. And even our canals often take you past the coast or near lakes where you can swim. Not to mention the vast array of watersports often on offer.
