Our luxury canal boats are the ultimate in English Boutique Retreats. We offer unique romantic getaways in our five star self-cruise boats.

Marbled White, Chalkhill Blue, Woodland Grayling and Kathleen May are the first of their kind in a small fleet of stylish narrowboats, designed for beginners and experienced boaters, alike. Our more traditional family narrowboat is Gosling.
