BOATING HOLIDAYS

ON THE BEAUTIFUL BASINGSTOKE CANAL

The Basingstoke Canal is one of the most user friendly canals in the UK. There are plenty of moorings, winding holes and pubs along its length, allowing you to take things at your pace.

  

 

  • We loved the boat which was so homely, the canal was beautiful with such varied scenery and great stops offs with superb pubs. The children loved the dragon flies, We will see you again.

  • Just wanted to thank you for the amazing experience we had on the canal, it is truly a beautiful area to visit and the friendly service you gave when we needed you for advice was gratefully received. We loved the Autumn colours and took some fantastic photos of the wildlife and scenery. We will definitely recommend this break to family and friends and we hope to see you in the Spring.

  • We had a wonderful time on the narrowboat – it met all our expectations and more.  We loved being able to enjoy the environment and villages along the way.  We will recommend the experience to everyone.  The layout of the boat worked very well and Ron found the boat easy to handle. Best wishes.
