Walking freedom & cruising luxury

kingfisherWalk the stunning countryside of Yorkshire and Lancashire, and relax in the stunning Lady Teal wide beam barge as we cruise the Leeds and Liverpool canal.

If you want to wander along the tow path getting on and off when you want or if you want to undertake longer walks away from the canal then you can.
If you want to walk point to point then there’s no packing and unpacking because instead of moving your luggage to the next hotel we move the hotel! This means each day is a new start point  for another fabulous walk.

Either plan your own routes or use one of the routes provided. All walking routes are fully illustrated with photographs and detailed maps to make sure you don’t go wrong. Nick & Gina have both walked extensively and are very happy  to sit down with you and an OS map and plan out a route.

Following a good nights sleep on a fully  sprung mattress, a hearty breakfast awaits you before you set off for your days walking.

walking-holidays-ukTake a packed lunch, stop off at a pub or meet up with Lady Teal for lunch.

After your days walking come back to a powerful shower, cocktails or a beer on the Star Deck , a gorgeous four course meal and  a cruise.

Nick & Gina have trekked to the top of Kilimanjaro, and have done many walks in the UK.  Nick has trekked a number of times in Nepal, including Everest base camp, in Morocco and Jordan. Talks can be given on trekking in these places and specifically on the challenges of high altitude trekking.

If you want to stop walking at lunchtime and cruise to the evenings meeting place, then of course you can.

If someone fancies a day off or is not a walker then stay on board,  walk the towpath, help with locks and swing bridges , or just relax and watch the world drift by.

It really is a great way to walk and to have your floating hotel there to meet you amidst the stunning scenery.
