Perfect for families and couples, our narrowboats are each unique, providing accommodation for 2-5 people, and come equipped with everything you need to enjoy your holiday on the canal. We'll also provide you with all the safety information and a hands on tutorial of how to drive the boat and works the locks and bridges, so no experience is necessary.

The cruising route along the Grand Union canal starts from Cow Roast Marina (which is conveniently located just a short drive from the M25) and runs either southwards to the lovely historic town of Berkhamsted, or northwards where there are a number of traditional country villages and plenty of countryside to explore. You can also cruise the secluded Wendover Arm and the Aylesbury Arm.
