After 18 months of welcoming your lovely pets onto the Boutique Narrowboats, we have come to the difficult decision to now make these two boats “pet-free.”
We will honour all 2020 bookings made for pets so far, but from the time of writing (Nov 2019) we will not be offering the option to book your pet onto Lesley Ann , Chalkhill Blue or Woodland Grayling. We ask that if you would like to bring a pet, you choose our sister boat, Gosling, instead.
Your dogs, cats and rabbits (yes, really!) are wonderful and many are as well-behaved as you describe. However, animals are unpredictable in a new environment and when a muddy, hairy, excitable bundle of joy has been on board for a week, things can get messy. Gosling is designed as a more robust, family-friendly vessel and we would be delighted to welcome your four-legged friends to join you on your holiday on this boat.
Despite our best efforts, the high standard of the Boutique Narrowboats’ interior decoration means that these boats are not ideal for pets.
Thank you for your understanding.
