Sail the UK inland waterways in style with these great boating holidays!

In and around Kytra Lock, On the Caledonian Canal, where bespoke canalside cottages are available to rent through Scottish Canals

If you’re still waiting to hear if your favoured holiday destination makes it on to the ‘Green List’ this summer, there are some brilliant UK-based holidays which will offer you and your family and friends a completely different experience. See our glorious countryside from a new perspective from the deck – and have all the fun of being skipper of your own ship!


You don’t need boating experience to handle these superb craft. Training is given before you set off and most cruise companies include enough fuel for the duration of your holiday. Whilst storage space is limited, there’s room for your bike, golf clubs or fishing rods so you can make the most of your time on and off-shore. And negotiating locks are all part of the fun!


Traditional boating holidays have long been associated with the beautiful Norfolk Broads. You can sail the Broads in a stylish cruiser in great luxury with you at the helm. Cruises for 7 nights for 4 people include fuel with superb accommodation: two bedrooms with ensuite facilities, flat screen tvs, wi-fi – and you can take your pets! Cruises like this start from £2405 in June and are selling fast!


Boating on the Caledonian Canal is a unique and unforgettable way to see Scotland’s wilderness. Enjoy the Highlands of Scotland, spending much of your time on lochs, where you can take in the beauty of hilltop castles, rugged valleys, cosy pubs and melodic bagpipes. Moor up and enjoy exploring, fishing or golf. Sail Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal from £1373 for 7 nights.


If you want to go ‘old-school’ and hire a barge to explore Warwickshire, Shakespeare’s heartland and so much more, you can hire an ultra-modern canal boat to accommodate up to 6 people. This is perfect for families with the added bonus of taking your bikes along, as well as your pets! 3 nights in June starts from £1059.
