About Us

Kennet and Avon Canal Boats is a small family business with a fleet of three very individual, quality boats owned and run by Richard and Sue Warren.

Having previously been in the hospitality industry as hotel owners we know how to provide the standard of service that makes your holiday unforgettable.

We try hard to enhance your holiday with more comfortable beds, fluffy towels. Our boats have full central heating and a well equipped kitchen. You are most welcome to make an appointment to view the boat prior to booking.

We do not operate our boats like the larger companies, the boats are unique and each has a character of its own. We have a varied range including shorter boats which some people prefer as they find them easier to handle. This makes them ideal for the novice boater, as well as the more experienced crew. Some of our customers have never stood on a narrow boat before, let alone driven one, but rest assured. Richard will not leave you until he is happy that you can handle the boat safely and competently.
We put the extra care and attention into our service because we want your experience with us to be exactly what it should be – a holiday.
