We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.


We are a family run canal boat hire business established in 1986 operating self-drive narrowboats on the Kennet & Avon Canal from Devizes Wharf at the top of the famous Caen Hill flight of 29 locks. You can meander through the beautiful Pewsey Vale in the heart of rural Wiltshire and on to Hungerford and Newbury eastwards or you can navigate westwards towards the beautiful city of Bath. If you prefer a lock free break you can cruise to Wootton Rivers and back on a 2 day escape. We do not offer day hire only w/e, short break or weekly hire of a 6 berth narrowboat. Many of our customers appreciate our high levels of service so much that they return year after year.
