Welcome to Saltway Narrowboat Hire
If you are looking to relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life or for a little adventure or even would just like to wake up to a new view every morning, you can find it all on a canal narrow boat holiday. Your holiday will flow at a relaxing pace with a great sense of freedom.
We are a friendly, family-run canal boat / narrowboat hire company located at Droitwich Spa Marina on the beautifully restored Droitwich Junction Canal.
The marina is easily accessible being just 2 miles from Junction 5 of the M5 motorway and it is a short stroll along the towpath to the picturesque town of Droitwich Spa. The town is well supplied by supermarkets with a Marks and Spencer, Morrisons and Waitrose (Waitrose being within metres of the canal). With the supermarkets delivery service you can have supplies delivered directly to your boat ahead of your holiday.
We currently have 4 narrowboats for you to choose from; Isabel, Amelia, Elsie May (Amelia's sister) and Grace. Our boats are personally selected unique canal boats; Isabel we believe is the only tug style narrowboat for hire on the canals. They all come with a comprehensive inventory and a full professional handover. We will take you through the 1st lock, so a canal holiday with us is suitable for experienced boaters or those new to the canal boat holidays.
Why not take a look at a short video of Isabel:- Isabel on the Droitwich Ring in Worcester (1min 6 secs)
or the extended version:- Droitwich Crusing Ring (10min 18sec)
We offer a choice of short breaks, mid-week breaks or longer holidays; where you can take advantage of the unique 2 day Droitwich cruising ring (taking in Droitwich Spa and Worcester) or extend your trip and travel further afield. There are a variety of routes to suit all and there are an abundance of pubs along the routes making cooking on board optional; after all it is a holiday!
Our changeover days are Friday, Saturday or Monday. We offer family friendly prices with no hidden charges and the length of your break is flexible even during holiday periods.
If this is your first canal boating holiday or you want to a reminder of what's involved, please watch this instructional video before your holiday: CRT Boaters DVD (25min 50 secs)
