The B&B Boat

Your Holiday

View down canal through bridge

Guests are welcome for both mini-breaks and longer holidays. A 1 night stay typically includes approximately 2 hours of cruising, while longer holidays allow for more cruising and a wider range of destinations (weather permitting of course!).

All holidays are offered on a bed and breakfast basis. Full English breakfast, with a range of options to suit all tastes, is served to you in the separate dining room by the friendly crew. All cruises are designed to allow guests the best combination of canal living and local attractions, and all destinations offer guests dining options for other meals.


Local Areas

View along the canal side

We can arrange to take our guests on a wide variety of cruises across the beautiful Staffordshire, Cheshire, and Derbyshire canals and countryside. Stops are made at local pubs/restaurants and places of interest along the way. These include for example, the picturesque canal junction at Fradley, with canalside cafe and an award-winning nature reserve, and the lovely historic town of Alrewas. Great Haywood is another popular port of call, sitting at the gateway of the renowned Shugborough Hall Estate which offers a host of attractions and special events to appeal to all. Cannock Chase is a nationally recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is close at hand - guests can enjoy its landscape and wildlife on foot or by bicycle. The historic canal town of Stone is another interesting port of call. The scenic splendour of the Caldon canal set in the Staffordshire Moorlands, and being close to Alton Towers, and the Churnet Valley Steam Railway is another popular cruise enjoyed by our guests. We will also be happy to discuss alternative holiday options - for example, cruises close to the Peak District National Park. Guided walks can also be arranged alongside your cruising holiday if desired.
