If you want the most perfect holiday destination on the waterways then the Canal Holidays on the Kennet and Avon are your number one choice. The Kennet and Avon canal is a link canal that links the Bristol Channel with the Thames and along the way has some of the most outstanding countryside for you to enjoy. You can enjoy marvelling at rural live as you meander slowly down the canal, passing by the southern areas of the Cotswolds and slowly making your progress down the canal.
There are two superb boatyards for you to hire your boat from when you take the Canal Holidays on the Kennet and Avon. The Reading Marine which is near to Aldermaston Wharf and the UK Boat Hire at Trowbridge are your two choices and each one has a great deal to offer in terms of boats and location. You have a choice of cruising routes where you can take in areas such as Bristol, Devizes, Reading and Bath to name just a few and you can stop off and enjoy the towns and villages en-route.
There is such a wide choice of boats as well and you can choose between a canal boat that can sleep from 2 people to 12 people, so something to suite everyone. Making the right choice of boat for your holiday is essential, especially if you want to keep the costs down, choosing a boat that is too large will cost you more. So make sure you decide on how many people are going on your holiday and then you can choose the right boat. The Canal Holidays Kennet and Avon are perfect for families or groups and this part of the canal network comes highly recommended.
