Rose Narrowboats

Escape to a slower pace of life...

The beauty of a narrowboat holiday is its freedom. You can enjoy the great outdoors with something new around each bend - a different pub for lunch perhaps, or a pretty village to explore. Canal cruising is a relaxing way of visiting major towns or waterside developments, and just sitting back and watching the world float by.
