Coronavirus and Narrowboating

The current situation is difficult for us all and the information below will help you make decisions regarding your holiday with us. Things may change the information below and we will endeavour to update this page as quickly as possible.

The Canal and River Trust [more info here] and British Marine [more info here] have both indicated that leisure boating is in the category of 'Unnecessary Travel'

Q: Can I still go on a narrowboat holiday?
A: NO, during the current lockdown it will not be possible. Unfortunately it is not possible to be definitive about the date that the restrictions will be lifted but we are hoping that around mid June we will be able to operate our narrowboats again. There will be some ongoing restrictions after lockdown, such as social distancing measures and we do not know when pubs and restaurants will be able to re-open. Your narrowboat holiday will be one of self sufficiency with most meals cooked and taken onboard. Takeaways could be a possibility, depending on how things progress, they would have to be delivered to the boat at a suitable mooring point.

If you would like to reserve a narrowboat holiday from July onwards. We will only take a £50 refundable deposit to secure your dates and once the restrictions are lifted we will take the remaining deposit payment or full payment if the holiday is within 6 weeks from the date booked. 

Q: Where can I find out more information?
A: Here  NHS information: coronavirus (COVID-19)  NHS information about how coronavirus is spread and how to avoid catching or spreading germs.
