We are delighted that our boats are once again cruising along the Kennet & Avon Canal taking you on your holidays afloat. February Half term holidays are often about escaping to the Alps or some warm beach, but for a real adventure closer to home a few days on a narrowboat may suit you and your family.

Holidaying on the water in the UK allows you to get away from your normal routine. Your holiday-home afloat not only creates time to spend together, but also allows you to meander from Devizes through the tranquil vale of Pewsey towards Hungerford. Stop and relax at a pub or two and let them take care of dinner. Walk along the towpath and detour up into the hills or the woods. Bring bikes and canoes. Fish if you like to. Read, sketch, paint, make music and get back to some creative writing. Give yourself time to reconnect with the countryside, yourself and your friends. Dogs love the boating life too and we welcome your dogs aboard, after all it’s their holiday as well!

Now we can’t promise sunshine, despite my best effort I still have no control over the weather, but being prepared with appropriate clothing will make your holiday great whatever the weather. Our recent hirers have all loved their holidays, even with storm “Dennis” joining them along the journeys! We are always just a phone call away in case you need anything, so if something happens we will be with you to sort it all out.

At this time of year fewer people chose to holiday afloat, but our prices reflect this, so if you are wanting to get on the water and enjoy the changing weather without the premium simmer prices, then now is a good time to come aboard.

Whatever the weather, whatever the season, we want you to enjoy a fabulous and safe holiday afloat with White Horse Boats.
