Are you too busy for a weekend getaway?

Do you want something relaxing to look forward to?

Trying to think of the best Valentine’s surprise?

Simply tell your partner that you’ve booked a romantic narrowboat trip for the Spring!

Whether you enjoy walking, nature, heritage, market towns, rural villages, country pubs or city shopping, there are plenty of romantic, relaxing, and fun things to explore on the Fenland Waterways.

Our Urban Fox narrowboat is ideal for a couple and the hire price includes all fuels used (diesel and gas), VAT, car parking, towels and bedlinen. She is a pretty little boat, painted brightly in the Fox Boat colours of red, yellow and green. Urban Fox is a 45ft boat with a cruiser stern, which means there is room to relax on the back deck, whether you are cruising or moored up for the night. Entering the boat from the back deck you’ll find there is a double berth and TV in the master cabin. The bed will be made up for you on arrival with a duvet and fresh linen.

Moving forward through the boat to the galley you’ll find a full size oven with four burner hob, a microwave, fridge and Denby crockery. If you’d like to order your shopping online we’ll put it on board for you, so that it’s ready at the start of your trip.

Walking through the galley towards the bow you’ll find the comfortable saloon has a dining table and flat screen TV with Freeview, stereo CD player and a USB charging point. On a sunny day you might leave the bow doors open so that you can look down the canal as you enjoy your evening meal.

Also on board you will find 240v electrics, a 12v mobile phone charging point, WiFi, a hoover, hairdryer and radiator central heating. Browse around inside the little narrowboat by looking at these photos: Narrowboat Urban Fox.

This boat has a cycle rack, so you could bring along your own bikes if you wish. Your dog would also be welcome on board, just contact us to let us know if you are bringing a pet!

If this is your first time on a narrowboat, or if it’s a while since you steered one, we offer free boat handling training at the start of your holiday.

On a three night weekend break you could cruise to the cathedral city of Ely, or head along the pretty River Nene to Ferry Meadows Country Park. Read more in: Two Valentine’s Breaks to Fall in Love With
