Half Term on Britain’s Canals from £507 for a Family of 6

October half-term holidays are an opportunity to try a self-catering break with a difference: a modern family-friendly narrowboat on Britain’s canals, with prices from just £507 for a Monday to Friday break for up to six people!

That’s just one of hundreds of boating holiday options available at Waterwaysholidays.com, the one-stop shop and advice source for breaks on our inland waterways.

£507 is the hire charge for a Derwent or Medway class narrowboat for four nights starting Monday 15 October in the Heart of England (bases at Gailey and Rugby). That’s a saving of £273 on the original price.

The following week, starting Monday 22 October the same boats are £585 for a four-night break, saving £315.

These modern narrowboats have two separate cabins to sleep four in permanent berths, with convertible seating in the saloon to sleep two additional people (six in total).

Each has one full shower/wc and an additional separate wc, a sitting/dining saloon area and well-equipped kitchen. Like most narrowboats, they’re pet-friendly at no extra charge.

Hire fees include damage waiver charge, bedlinen and towels, car parking at the base while away, loan of buoyancy aids and helmsman’s waterproofs and – of course – a comprehensive hand-over with tuition so that families can set off with confidence! The only extra is fuel used during the trip: families should budget around £50 for this.

“With more than 2,000 miles of navigable canals across the UK, most people are within an hour or two’s drive of one of our start points,” says Waterways Holidays’ managing director Nigel Richards.
