Canal Boats are a great way of seeing the English countryside at a very leisurely pace as you wind your way through farms and villages. The boats are set up with all the conveniences you need and are easy to handle.
Frances and I have had 2 experiences of two weeks each time, hiring narrowboats. The first was in July 2002, and was on the very popular Llangollen Canal hiring a boat from Whitchurch, and a later hire on the Warwickshire Ring picking our boat up at Rugby, in May 2008. I am sure there will be another time before too long.
An over night stop.
