Float by Boat

Description

Float by Boat uniquely provides meditative canal breaks, hosted aboard our 69ft narrowboat, Spirited Away. The experience is tranquil and spacious; including canal cruising, meditation sessions, and free time to enjoy the countryside, learn boat handling skills, reading, being creative or just resting.

It’s a low carbon holiday too. On a narrowboat we’re well connected to the resources we use and are careful to conserve everything we can. Food is vegetarian and vegan, and locally sourced where possible. Travelling to us is easy as we provide local collections from trains and buses, and bikes can be stored on the boat. We generate our electricity and hot water as a bi-product from moving around, supplementing electricity supply with 2 solar panels. Life aboard is a simple one without mod cons, which lowers our environmental impact and creates a natural, peaceful atmosphere.

You can join an existing trip or charter Spirited Away from a special meal, day trip, weekend or longer stay. The boat sleeps 6 to 7 and two crew members, over 69 feet, with two shower and toilet rooms. Weekends are priced at £150 per person for 2 nights and are all inclusive.

Narrow boats, wide eyes, open minds...

Please note that the address is a postal address only - Float by Boat operates from a narrowboat that cruises around the rural waterways of Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire and the Midlands.
