The Area

Taking a short break over 3 nights from Friday to midweek breaks Monday to Friday gives lots of time to relax and explore the tranquil routes from Sawley Marina along the Trent and Mersey Canal, the River Trent or the River Soar.
Having a longer break for one or two weeks will take you further along the canals again with many breathtaking routes towards the historical Potteries of Stoke on Trent or Newark on Trent with its beautiful castle and market.

What's special about this boat

Wake up each morning to a different view whatever the season or location. Towns and cities, waterfront bars and restaurants as well as the peaceful tranquillity of the open countryside. Canal holidays have it all.
