With all this talk about self imposed quarantine and generally protecting yourself from the infected public masses, people are starting to panic and stock with essential consumables.

But if the aim is to slow the rate of contamination until warmer weather, then perhaps avoiding unnecessary contact, washing your hands and keeping healthy is very sensible advice.

What better way than to take you and your loved ones on holiday? Just a journey by car, will get you to Devizes Wharf where you can come aboard your next adventure. No need to travel aboard through busy airport terminals or hours on crowded ferries. You can even avoid the supermarkets if you arrange an online delivery to arrive at your boat.

A holiday afloat allows you to enjoy the countryside. Walk the towpath and surrounding hills and woods. View a few of the White Horses of Wiltshire. Meander through the tranquil vale of Pewsey. Learn how to cruise a narrowboat. Negotiate swing bridges, work locks, moor and manoeuvre your boat. Evenings can be spent playing games together, watching films, listening to music. And if you want, you can venture out to a pub or two to sample the food and ‘rehydrate’.

We provide toilet rolls, enough for your entire holiday! We also provide soap and so you can wash your hands as often as you want. Our boats are thorough cleaned for every hire, as we take great pride in the condition of our fleet.

So if you want to get away from people coughing and want a better solution than just staying home, we’d be delighted to welcome you aboard and show you the ropes.

And your doggy friends are welcome too! They love a holiday aboard.
