No Hidden Extras
Fully Inclusive Hire Fee At first glance the initial cost of hiring a
boat may seem expensive. But please remember the cost of the boat
includes your accommodation as well as your transport and your entertainment. This means entertainment for the whole
family, including the dog! The canal scene is not commercialised, and
