Boat hire on the Kennet and Avon canal in Wiltshire

We are a family-run canal holiday business established in 1986. We operate self-drive canal narrowboat holidays on the Kennet and Avon canal from Devizes Wharf in Wiltshire

We operate 3 narrowboats, one 2 to 4 berth and two 4 to 6 berth narrow boats.

Many of our customers appreciate our high levels of service so much that they return year after year to experience at leisure the delights of life on a narrowboat on the Kennet & Avon canal.

Our fleet

We pride ourselves in ensuring that our fleet is maintained to a high standard and welcome prospective customers to view the boats prior to booking their holiday.

Route options

When you hire a narrowboat from us you can meander through the beautiful Pewsey Vale, in the heart of rural Wiltshire, through the Savernake Tunnel and past the Crofton beam Engines towards Hungerford and Newbury eastwards.

Alternatively, you can navigate westwards via Claverton Pumping Station and Bradford-on-Avon to the city of Bath.

Our narrowboat canal holidays are based at Devizes Wharf at the top of the famous Caen Hill flight of 29 locks, but you can still take a lock-free break if you cruise to Wootton Rivers and back on a two-day escape from the rush of modern life.
