Newbury Marina Holiday Narrowboat Hire

Canal holiday narrowboat hire on the Kennet & Avon.

We would like your boating holiday to be a memorable one, we look at each customer as an individual, so even before you book your Newbury Marina narrowboat holiday, please feel free to call or email us if your requirements are not shown or are unavailable. 

We will endeavor to make your holiday one of your most enjoyable & best holidays yet! Full tuition and handover of the boats is always given, this can take up to 1 1/2hrs so we advise you to get here early! We show you how to navigate the boat, how to moor up safely (showing you how to use ropes & tie knots). We also take you through your first lock and electric swing bridge.

We also offer each and every customer their own unique and individually tailored narrowboat holiday route map/planner as we know that everybody has different requirements (which obviously depend upon your length of holiday and how much time you would like to spend cruising each day).

The map will highlight all locks, bridges, swing bridges and essential points, like where to stop for water and refuse points along the way, It will also state where to moor up over night and most importantly where to turn around! We will also advise on places of interest (historical) local amenities and of course the best pubs to eat and drink in - if you fancy an afternoon or night off the boat along the way!!
