Canal holiday narrowboats on the beautiful Kennet and Avon . Based only 2 miles from the world heritage city of Bath, we are a family business offering narrowboat holidays on our comfortable, individual, boats .

More comfort, more features:

We try hard to make our boats stand out from the crowd by providing better beds, more equipment and the little extras that make the difference between a good holiday and a truly memorable one.

Stunning scenery:

The Kennet and Avon canal is the jewel in the crown of the canal system - and our boats are based where the Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty gives way to the magnificent Georgian spa city of Bath - the perfect location for your narrowboat holiday.

Your boat :

We don't operate a faceless fleet - our narrowboats ooze character and are not painted in corporate colours. Most of our business comes through recommendation.

We try harder:

Run by people with a wealth of boating experience, Castaway Canal Boats treats all clients as individuals. We will do our very best to ensure that you have the necessary tuition and information that you will need to enjoy a week (or longer) on one of our boats.
