It may not be the obvious choice for a holiday, but Canal Boat Hire Holidays are becoming increasingly popular with people from all walks of life. From families on a budget to those who have a little more cash to splash, there is something for everyone on Canal Boat Hire Holidays as the hire of the boat is one cost and not calculated per person.
Boats are available in a variety of sizes with some vessels sleeping 10 or more people, ideal for families with a few children or groups of friends who are looking to get away from it all for a few days. Boats range from narrow boats to cruisers and give users the chance to experience a completely different way of life. Relaxing on the UK’s waterways is the ideal way to forget about the stresses and strains of modern life and forget about emails, meetings and phones for a few days.
It is also the ideal opportunity to take in much of the sights of the country. There are a number of routes that can be followed for those who are new to boating, such as the Cheshire Ring, which covers seven different canals in the Cheshire and Greater Manchester area and sights as diverse as Manchester city centre and the Peak District. Those who regularly take Canal Boat Hire Holidays might rather just travel without a schedule, and go where the fancy takes them.
Canal Boat Hire Holidays are not just limited to England. There are numerous routes throughout Scotland and Wales which would appeal to those who want to explore the country and newcomers to boating should not be put off by the thought of locks and operating the vessel as boat hire companies will always explain everything that you need to know before you start.
