Canal boat B&B’s are growing in popularity throughout the UK, and for a number of reasons. Just like with a regular bed and breakfast, you can expect to see high quality customer service, but you get the added benefit of being able to escape from highly populated areas, and the opportunity to travel and visit anywhere you like (provided they’re near a canal).
With a canal boat, you can travel anywhere you like within 50 miles. This means that if you hire a barge in London, which offers a B&B service, you could visit anywhere you like within the South-east. You aren’t limited to a local area when travelling through canals. With most boat B&B’s you don’t just pay for a bed and breakfast, but for the run of the ship. You can direct the boat to any location you like, or even just cruise around aimlessly, enjoying being out on the water.
