Going it alone


Is a narrowboat holiday good holiday for single people?

Our narrowboat can be skippered and crewed by one person, and it could be a good way to escape for a while, but some experience is definitely recommended before embarking on your own. Hiring out a boat to an individual will require previous experience as it can be quite hazardous working all those locks  etc on your own.

If you’re single or just travelling alone and looking for a holiday where you can indulge in the cruising lifestyle and combine it with meeting new people and enjoying their company in cosy and friendly surroundings, you should consider a skippered holiday.


What is a skippered holiday?

On our skippered boat holiday, you’ll have your own skipper who knows the rivers, their wildlife, culture and heritage. The boat crew will operates the locks and navigate the waterway, of which you can help out as much as you like. Or you can just relax, sit back, chat, read a book or watch the wildlife go by. The crew will keep you safe, comfortable and content so you can focus on having fun.

Please contact us if you are interested in a skippered Holiday.


Why should I choose a skippered holiday instead of a hireboat?

A skippered boat holiday is great for anyone - couples, stressed executives & minions, seniors, groups; just about anyone who wants to relax and be pampered in pleasant surroundings. But its perfect if you want a cruising holiday on your own, a perfect relaxing option for you, especially if you want to escape other pressures and spend time on a hobby, such as photography, painting, bird-watching, writing or just reading a book. Plus you get to meet other like minded people, often making lasting friendships.
