Surrey and Hampshire’s beautiful Basingstoke canal is very quiet with none of the problems you sometimes encounter on busier canals. On short breaks you only have to negotiate one lock. We are located approximately 30 miles South West of London and 30 miles North of the South Coast. If you travel by train we are on a direct rail route from Waterloo to Hook (60 mins). There is a Tesco supermarket next to Hook station where you can get supplies and call a taxi from to get to the boatyard (about 8 mins away). Leave the stress of the city behind – come and enjoy a peaceful, relaxing break with us..
