Just Show Me Canal-Side Cottages

Enjoy peace and quiet in a canal-side cottage, far from crowds and everyday mayhem. If you think canals are just for narrow-boat enthusiasts, then think again. They attract all kinds of people with all kinds of interests. Yes you can hire a boat for the day or book a restaurant cruise, but there's so much more.

Sample the 'great outdoors' slowly on a canal-side cottage holiday…

A canal-side cottage holiday instantly reduces stress. Walk along towpaths and view things from a different perspective. Get close to nature and wildlife. Explore hidden backwaters of busy cities. There's even a long-distance National Trail, the Thames Path, linking the Cotswolds with the capital.

Many canal paths are also open to cyclists, though there are strict speed limits and a permit is sometimes required. Or cast your line and catch tonight's supper to prepare in your own canal-side accommodation!

There are usually lots of welcoming pubs and restaurants along the banks - perfect for lazy afternoons and alfresco dining as you watch life on the water slowly pass you by.

Extraordinary canal-side attractions range from Wiltshire's Caen Hill Locks and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (a World Heritage Site) in North Wales, to the Falkirk Wheel in Scotland - the world's first rotating boat lift.
