Couples Boating Breaks on the Grand Union Canal

If you are looking for a romantic escape like no other, a narrowboat holiday could be just what you need!

Slow down

With a maximum speed limit of just 4mph, a canal holiday is the perfect way to slow down and escape every day life. 

Plus, when you are surrounded by nature and have nothing to wake you up but the sound of bird song, nobody could blame you for making the most of a peaceful lie in each morning.

Make time for each other

When you cruise the canals in our luxury narrowboats, you can spend quality time together driving the boat, managing the locks, and enjoying a peaceful evening at one of the many wonderful local restaurants. 

You'll have everything you need to enjoy a comfortable holiday on board ready for you, and even a cosy log burner to curl up in front of on those chillier evenings.

Wake up to a new view every day

When you hire a canal boat for a self-drive holiday, you are free to explore at your own pace. 

So whether you want to spend your days cruising the canals together, or you want to spend some time exploring the beautiful Chiltern Hills countryside, every day is guaranteed to bring a new adventure your way.

No experience necessary!

If you've never been on a canal boat before, that's absolutely fine. We provide everyone with a tailored introduction to narowboating at the start of your holiday where we'll show you everything you need to know about driving, locks and mooring.
