New Narrowboats to Hire through Waterways Holidays

Waterways Holidays, the one-stop-online-shop for booking holidays on Britain’s inland waterways, will be offering as many as 12 brand-new boats for summer 2018, with the first completed boat launching in time for Easter.

Lily is a 66-feet long narrowboat that combines modern comforts with heritage features. She is based at Trevor on the beautiful Llangollen Canal in north Wales, and sleeps four people.

The exterior features traditional paintwork, portholes as well as modern windows, hatches next to the dining table for ‘open air’ eating and a traditional ‘cratch’ (removable awning) over the fore deck for a sheltered seating area.

Inside, two shower rooms and two wcs mean the two sleeping areas are virtually ensuite (there’s a fixed double bed and another cabin area which may be used either as a double or two singles). Radiators provide central heating and a cosy solid fuel stove adds a focal point in the saloon.

LED ceiling lights make it bright, but Victorian-style wall-lights add atmosphere. The galley kitchen features a Belfast sink and Victorian style taps, but also boasts a modern gas hob, oven and grill, fridge, microwave and everything needed to self-cater. Other features include WiFi and flat-screen TV/DVD.

Lily is pet-friendly, with the first one free of charge, and a second welcome at a small supplement. Bedding, linen, towels and buoyancy aids are all included in the hire price, as is car parking while you cruise and initial tuition.

Budget for a £50 damage waiver fee (to cover accidental damage to the boat) to hire charges that start from £740 for a three night break, and from £1060 for a week. Pay for fuel as used.

From her base at Trevor guests can explore the Vale of Llangollen on a cruise that could include the famous ‘stream in the sky’ otherwise known as the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
