TAKE YOUR TIME ON A LONGER HOLIDAY…
So you’re ready for a two or three week canal boat holiday? Good for you!
You’ll enjoy the pace of a longer break. There’s plenty of time to moor up and take in the sights, stay a day or two in a place that takes your fancy, or treat the children to a day at a local theme park or attraction.
Many of our guests take a longer holiday to complete one of the tremendous waterways rings, such as the Four Counties Ring from our Cheshire base, which is easily manageable travelling for around four hours per day, or the Warwickshire Ring from our Stoke Prior base taking around six hours per day. These rings will give you a fantastic variety of landscapes, both in town and country and there’s an excellent sense of achievement when accomplished!
You don’t have to have previous experience in canal boating to do the rings, just be aware of the time and make a note of where you need to be by a certain date – our teams at the canal bases can help you with this before you leave.
Depending on the base you start from, you can generally start a 7-night break from 2.30pm and 3.30pm Saturdays, Mondays and Fridays or from 9.30am on Wednesday departures. Boats should be returned and vacated by 9.30am Saturdays, Mondays and Fridays or 2.30pm on Tuesday returns.
