Griffin Narrowboat Holidays

Glide along the Trent and Mersey Canal in style, aboard a warmly welcoming pet-and-eco-friendly narrowboat. Family-owned, pet friendly and full of cosy comfort, you'll find Silver Ann 2 moored at Mercia Marina, a tranquil South Derbyshire haven in the heart of canal country. You simply couldn't be better placed for gliding along the glistening waterways of the Trent and Mersey Canal, without a care in the world. Better still, you can relax in the knowledge that your carbon footprint will be reassuringly light. Canal boat hire is one of the greenest holiday options you can choose, and we are fully committed to environmental care. Silver Ann 2 uses LED lighting and solar panels, with all linen and towels made from bamboo - which is sustainable, hypoallergenic and irresistibly soft! You'll also find a host of extra touches to make your holiday memorable. Leisure options include bicycles, fishing rods and easels; you can treat yourself to a 'Taste of the Shires' hamper, while we also cater for the feathered-friends you are sure to make with a bag of duck food. Or of course you might just choose to cruise gently along, taking in the scenery and the wildlife, and wondering what'll be on the menu at the next canal side inn you reach...
