Cafwin Cruises
The 5* Eco-friendly Boutique Canal & river Boat Holiday Company

Luxury Narrow Boat & Electric-Hybrid Narrow Boat Hire in Worcestershire, warwickshire & gloucestershire

A Luxury Holiday Like No Other

Inspire romance and indulge in the idyllic waterways of Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Gloucestershire in 5* rated luxurious style on truly beautiful narrowboats unlike any others seen on the water.

A holiday aboard a rental boat on a historic stretch of the British canal network is one of the greatest pleasures boating has to offer. While various sun-chasing holidays abroad can leave you even more exhausted than you were at the start, a good canal holiday has you sucking in restorative air, smiling at people you would usually ignore and marvelling at how your heart rate appears to have halved. After just a couple of hours, you find yourself sidestepping the ferocious pace of modern life, and easing along at a couple of knots with nothing on your mind but the water, the scenery and the thought of that pub that awaits you just around the next corner.

All About Our Narrowboats

Arthur & Ollie Owl were built to provide the same creature comforts you would expect in a quaint boutique hotel and have been rated as 5* accommodation by British Marine.  You will not find any other hire boats on the water that provide such luxury, comfort, space, accessories or beauty as that found on our 57 ft boat, Arthur Owl (sleeps 4), or for those eco-conscious guests, our new in 2022, Ollie Owl (sleeps 5), an all-electric propulsion for near-silent cruising, combined with an efficient onboard generator, plus 1.6kW of solar power to enable recharging of the high capacity battery bank, without the need to connect to shore power. 

Cafwin Cruises believe that life is better on the water and to help our guests take responsible care to  protect the waterways environment as much as possible, we have kitted Arthur Owl out to be as eco-friendly as possible, but our amazing Ollie Owl is the way of our future and, to our knowledge, is the first Serial Electric Hybrid Narrowboat available for hire on the English canal network.  Find out more below about the eco values of Cafwin Cruises. 

We loved our first week on Arthur Owl so much that we came back a month later and loved it even more!  It’s a great feeling cruising along knowing you’re on the best boat on the water!  Can’t recommend Cafwin Cruises highly enough.
