What You Can Expect: Exploring canals aboard our narrowboat makes a fascinating, exciting and unforgettable holiday experience. Each new day brings opportunities to explore new places. The canals wind their way through the countryside to pass through countless towns and villages where you can moor up and explore at your own pace. There are many walks to experience along the towpath as well where you can see our wonderful wildlife at its very best. Imagine being able to moor up at the end of an exciting day in the middle of nowhere, on your own with nothing but the country wildlife for company. Light the fire, pour a glass of wine and wind down as the sun sets and the stars come out. It will redefine the word ‘peaceful’. The kids will love it. Or if you are a couple trying to get away from it all, what could be more romantic? For the more experienced and adventurous narrowboaters, there is no limit. Even London can be reached by canal. Narrowboating is fun for all the family…whether it’s a chilled out break for 2 or an adventure holiday for families and children, there’s something for everyone. The kids will love being involved with working the locks (under supervision of course), plotting the route and maybe helping to steer. They’re almost guaranteed a good night’s sleep after all that fresh air. What To Expect Onboard: "Adele Marie" has a lovely layout which can easily accommodate up to five people. The lounge has double opening doors making it light and airy and allowing for a relaxing view from the front of the boat whilst cruising or enjoying an evening glass of wine. There is a 22″ TV/DVD for evening entertainment and a CD/radio for music, (which can also be played from an SD card). Our galley and diner allow preparation of lovely meals for all the family, with full gas hob and grill / oven. There is plenty of hot water and space for food and utensils. Our welcome pack will provide you with washing up liquid, cloths, tea-towel, tea / coffee and a few surprises to get you started. You can also preorder things like bread and milk which can then be waiting for you in the on-board fridge / freezer. It really can be a home from home. Imagine sleeping here, in the middle of the countryside, nothing but the sounds of birds and wildlife…so far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life….Adele Marie can sleep up to five people – it has one fixed double (featured), 2 singles which can be converted into a double and a pull down sofabed can be added to extend sleeping to fivele. So…plenty of room for a family or a group of friends to get together and enjoy the splendour of the British canal network Our bathroom is comfortably equipped with a lovely hot shower, (or cold one for those hot summer days), basin and plenty of storage. Towels and shower mat will be provided and there is a shaver recharge point available. Check out the layout of Adele Marie. The two chairs at the front can be replaced with a pulldown sofabed meaning that the boat can sleep up to 6 people. The single beds at the stern can be zipped together making a second double bed. There is plenty of storage throughout. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
