Waterways Holidays 2015 Early Booking Deals

Clients booking an August 2015 holiday on a traditional narrowboat on the Ashby Canal in Warwickshire can save up to £189 when booked by January 31st.

The deal, available through specialist boating holidays agency Waterways Holidays, represents a saving of 10% on brochure price and the same discount level applies to all narrowboat hire from the Stoke Golding base, on all 12 hire boats and all dates across the 2015 season, including school holidays.

This means, for example that a week’s hire in August of Oakthorpe, a 69 feet long narrowboat sleeping between six and 10 people, should be £1890, but with the early booking offer is £1701 in total, which works out at just over £170 per person. The price is all inclusive of diesel used during the cruise, gas for cooking and heating, bedding and linen, buoyancy aids, a welcome pack of groceries, parking at Stoke Golding during the cruise and all necessary licences.

The boat is well equipped for friends or families, with flexible accommodation, both double and single berths, and a cleverly designed teak and ash interior with galley kitchen (hob, oven, fridge and freezer), two shower/wc rooms, dining saloon and additional seating fore and aft, plus TV/DVD, CD/radio.

Stoke Golding is in rural Warwickshire, and the lock free Ashby Canal is ideal for novice boaters, while the North Oxford and Coventry Canals are other options for cruising through beautiful English countryside and historic market towns, past canal-side villages with good pubs and towpath walks.
