Covid-19 Statement

Due to the latest lifting of Government restrictions, as of Saturday the 4th of July, we are now able to restart our over-night hire boating operations. All bookings will and must be restricted to up to 2 household groups but they must social distance when on the boat at all times. The captain will be allowed on the vessel with the member of staff during the handover procedure, the rest of the party must remain ashore or inside the boat away from the member of staff. We will ask the client during the handover to bring and wear their own face mask.

Welcome to Kennet and Avon Canal Boats, where you can book a unique break on one of Britain’s most attractive canals and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Wiltshire countryside.
