Thinking of a Stay-cay this year?

Think About a Canal boat Holiday!

We’re fulfilling a long held dream of owning a narrowboat but we can’t use it all year round. So we’re hiring it out for you to enjoy, starting in May 2018.

KODRAN is a well appointed 60′ cruiser stern canal boat with 6 configurable berths. There’s 2 washrooms, each with a toilet and there’s a hip bath with shower. A fully equipped kitchen and dining area completes everything you need for a canal boat holiday for All the Family!

Never been on a canal cruise before?

We have a professional team to look after you and get you under way. They’ll take you through the operation, pre-start checklist and safety features of our narrowboat. Importantly, they'll show you how to use the lifejackets: your safety is very important to us!

Once we’ve shown you how to operate a lock, you’ll be free to explore England’s historic canal network.

Where can we go in a week?

We are centrally located on the historic Staffordshire and Worcester Canal in the rural English Midlands. This makes for easy scenic cruising to the picturesque Shropshire Union Canal, the Trent and Mersey canal for the Potteries or the Birmingham canals for industrial history buffs.

There are several routes for long weekend breaks and cruises further afield for those with two weeks or more to relax. Click here for more information.

How do we get there?

Arriving by car is easy with the base located a half mile from Junction 12 on the M6. There’s plenty of free parking.

Rail travellers reach us by fast train to Stafford or Wolverhampton and can pick-up a taxi outside for the onward journey; Gailey Wharf is less than 10 miles away.

Full directions, a map and information for travellers arriving by air can be found here.

Kodran is a non-smoking narrowboat.
