Our boats do not cruise over the winter as the conditions can be too hazardous (ice/snow) over the colder months. This makes cruising impossible and very difficult for us to get to the boats should anything happen. So no, for elf and safety reasons (sorry, couldn’t resist…) we do not hire over the winter or for Christmas.

We start cruising again in February 2020. Most canal holiday operators close from November to end of February,  but if you are keen then Waterways Holidays will show any Christmas availability.
