Save up to 40% on October Canal Boat Hire

Waterways Holidays, the one-stop advice centre and booking site for holidays on Britain’s inland waterways, has a host of offers on October hire, with reductions of up to 40 per cent.

The largest savings are on boats starting from Pershore on the River Avon, where modern four-star narrowboats with impressive names like ‘Omniscient’, ‘Ostentatious’ and ‘Ubiquitous’ are discounted for weekend and midweek breaks as well as full week hire – including half term. For example:

Hire ‘Ostentatious’ for seven nights starting 20 October and pay just £750, saving £500 on the original price! This 52-feet long narrowboat can sleep up to six, and has central heating, a clever galley kitchen, shower, wc and all mod cons for a self-catering holiday afloat. It is pet friendly too, at no extra charge. Everything is included in the hire price, even fuel, though hirers are asked for a damage waiver deposit.

Other options include three nights on ‘Quintessence’ (sleeps up to eight) starting 20 October for £591, saving £394, and a four-night break starting 16 October on ‘Omniscient’ which is now reduced to £438, saving £292.

From Pershore, the River Avon winds through beautiful Worcestershire countryside, including the orchards of the vale of Evesham and limestone villages, to Shakespeare’s Stratford, while to the south lies historic Tewkesbury’s lovely abbey.

In Cheshire, the majority of boats based at Anderton on the Trent & Mersey Canal are now reduced by 35 per cent throughout October, with savings of up to £560 on a full week. That’s on seven nights’ hire of ‘Booted Eagle’ starting 22 October, now reduced to £1040 for the whole family.

Other breaks from Anderton include four nights’ hire of ‘Tufted Duck’ starting 8 or 15 October at £552, saving £297, and three nights’ hire of ‘Reed Bunting’ on 26 October now just £422, saving £227.  Anderton is a brilliant starting point for visiting pretty Lymm and the Lion Salt Works in historic Northwich.

Other October discounts apply to boats based at Sowerby Bridge in the Pennines, and on the lovely Kennet & Avon canal in Wiltshire.
