Charnwood Canal Boat Holiday Hire - the friendly family firm

Canal Boat Holiday Hire with Charnwood

Welcome to Charnwood Canal Boat Holiday Hire.

We are a small, family run canal holiday hire business and as such are able to provide a more personal, flexible and cost effective service than many larger companies. Our aim is to provide a friendly service and a reliable, comfortable holiday hire boat at a reasonable price.

Canal boat holidays are suitable for all members of the family from those who want to sit back, relax and watch the world go by, to those who want the satisfaction of mastering a new skill and have lots of energy to expend operating the locks and walking or cycling along the towpath, and also those seeking a glimpse of the heritage of the canals e.g. canal tow-path pubs, landmarks etc. They are a great way of spending time with friends and family of all ages.
