WE ARE A FAMILY OWNED canal boat hire company offering self-drive narrowboat holidays. Our historic base at Hilmorton Locks, close to Rugby, is ideally suited to cruise the Shire counties across the English Midlands. Our narrowboats are available all year round.

OUR NARROWBOATS are available for holidays all year round. All are well insulated and heated so are suitable for winter cruising. Often length of hire period and start days can be varied off season - let us know what you want to do and we'll try to accommodate your wishes.

We are pleased to be able to offer 'Beatrice' a purpose built narrowboat suitable for wheelchair or disabled use with ramps, dual steering controls, wide doorways, large wetroom style shower room etc. Click here for further details.

From our base at Hilmorton Locks near Rugby on the North Oxford Canal, you can enjoy the rural scenery of the Midlands, visit Royal Leamington Spa, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, or simply lose yourself deep in quiet countryside, speckled with small villages. If you take a fortnight or longer, why not explore the waterways that join the Thames; South Oxford Canal through the Cotswolds, or cruise into central London for some sight-seeing via the Grand Union Canal.

Why not book one or more of our large boats for an office weekend away - ideal for team building weekends. We have a choice of boats available all year round.
We do occasionally get last-minute cancellations, so don't be put off if you find a few days spare at short notice. Give us a call and we'll tell you what's available, though our on-line availability is kept up to date and will include any cancellations.

Choice of two start locations !

In September 2009, we took over Willow Wren, located just a short distance from Hillmorton at Rugby Wharf.

This means that we can now offer an even greater choice of boats including a number of large cost effective 12 berth boats which are perfect for large groups requiring all single beds.

You can now check boats from each of our bases online buy using our live online reservation system
