Located in the ancient Saxon Town of Bradford on Avon, half an hour’s drive from the World Heritage City of Bath, Sally Narrowboats provides independent canal boat hire on the Kennet and Avon Canal.
Our fleet of canal narrowboats allow you to cruise the Kennet & Avon Canal, to Bath in a westerly direction and Reading in the east with numerous points of interest between – See our leisure guide page for some recommendations! Our fleet ranges from intimate two berth boats right up to those which can cater for groups of ten.
Situated in the Bradford on Avon Marina, Sally Narrowboats is easily accessible from both the M4 and M5 motorways, and only a short walk or taxi journey from Bradford On Avon train station.
To ensure that you enjoy your canal narrow boat holiday to the full, before you begin your cruise one of our professional staff will instruct you in the safe handling of the boat as well as the operation of locks and swing bridges. For your total peace of mind our training and handover protocols have been accredited by BMF, the British Marine Industry’s trade association.
Unfortunately for the foreseeable future we will no longer be hiring to Stag or Hen Parties.
Sorry you cannot go on the river. New legislation on stability testing of Narrow boats for hire and the flow of the river Avon has made this trip a nonstarter. Bath will be your turning point.
