Our luxury canal boats are the ultimate in English Boutique Retreats. We offer unique romantic getaways in our two five star self-cruise boats. Lesley Ann and Chalkhill Blue are the first of their kind in a small fleet of stylish narrowboats, designed for beginners and experienced boaters, alike.

Located along the Grand Union Canal in Leicestershire, we offer Modern Rustic getaways for couples. A barge holiday is a unique combination of both seclusion and adventure. But our narrowboats go further than this; we invite you to experience our Boutique Retreats in style.
