Nuthatch – Canal Boat Hire Near Bath

Nuthatch Canal Boat Hire Near Bath

If you are looking for canal boat hire near Bath, Nuthatch is a cosy, comfortably-appointed Wiltshire-based 2-3 berth canal boat, available for private hire for canal holidays. (Nuthatch isn’t the most spruced-up boat on the canal which means I can let her out a bit more cheaply than many of the others!!) Read what one recent holiday-maker wrote:

All Aboard Nuthatch! A Perfect Break May 2017

Canal Boat Hire Near Bath

“Nuthatch is the perfect way for two, inexperienced narrow boaters, to learn about knots, mooring, locks, swing bridges, turning around and finding beautiful places to stop to eat along the Kennet and Avon Canal. After a few hours of good tuition, we set off with our little Westie and headed towards Bath. We’d been shown how to use the tiller and avoid other boats, to go through a lock and a swing bridge and how to moor and rope up or walk the plank if needs be! The whole narrowboat experience is so calming and so slow, nothing can be rushed. At only 35ft long, Nuthatch is very compact, bijou and romantic, she is a very pretty narrowboat. The galley is small, only one person can create meals at any one time but, with plenty of beautiful old pubs and small towns along the way, we often just enjoyed eating out and sampling the local food and ales.”
