With us your whole rental is personal. We were one of the first, and remain the only long term, dedicated private hire, narrowboat operator in Southern England.  We specialise in helping British, ex-pats and foreign visitors experience our stunning canal system.

The Squire

I’ve been boating for over 40 years – many of those living by and travelling on the water. I’ve hotel-boated around almost the whole connected waterway system and have many years in hire boats and tourism. This makes me uniquely placed to share all of this experience and enthusiasm in helping you plan and enjoy the most amazing extended holiday experience.
