Luxury canal boat hire

Boutique Narrowboats is a new luxury canal boat hire business in Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. Our aim is to provide exclusive five star narrowboats on the Grand Union Canal Leicester Line, from where you can cruise through the famous Foxton Locks or explore the Wistow Rural Centre & Maze.

With unique interiors, modern tech and well-placed antiques, we hope you will experience our beautiful waterways in boutique hotel style.

Luxury canal boat hire for honeymoons, anniversaries and birthdays

Many who choose a luxury Boutique Narrowboat holiday are celebrating a special event. Our barge mini breaks make an idyllic retreat for couples marking a milestone birthday or celebrating a special anniversary. We also welcome those who are looking for a UK honeymoon with a difference, where romance and seclusion are important, as well as a sense of adventure.

Full training is given on your first afternoon aboard, so no previous experience is necessary and you don’t require a special licence.

We invite you to explore our website to find out more about us. We have two boats available for hire and we love to share our experiences with you via our blog, newsletter or on Facebook.

If you’d like to stay on board a Boutique Narrowboat, then you can check availability and book online very easily via our website.

Happy boating! Sharon and Aaran
