A break on a narrowboat makes the dream of an ‘away from it all’ family holiday a reality. Once the summer rush is over, Central England’s most beautiful countryside is waiting to greet you from the deck of your canal boat. Waterside pubs, timeless sleepy villages, bustling country towns and an abundance of heritage sites and historical treasures are open – and quieter – for your appreciation. With the Comforts of Home and New Views Everyday, you will discover a different aspect of England and Wales and moreover, your real self!

Fair weather cruising

The months of September and October can be some of the fairest because of the vagaries of the British weather. The weather is calm at this time of the year: although the heat doesn’t linger and sometimes the mornings are chilly, the days can often be of clear blue skies and most calm, making perfect cruising conditions.

But don’t be put off by the lower temperatures! There’s central heating onboard. You can check out Kodran’s other features including cosy cabin layouts here.

A more relaxed holiday

Another big advantage is the school holidays are now finished and the canal network is a lot quieter. There’s still a lot of hire boats on the water but these are usually seasoned cruisers who know the advantages of a more peaceful holiday. That means that when you encounter them in locks you’re going to get professional help and not bump into somebody who has as little understanding of what’s supposed to happen as you do!

Autumn is certainly our favourite time of year to come home and escape to the canals of the English Midlands. See our blog post of a recent trip here for some ideas.
