Where Our Narrowboat Lives
The historic town of Droitwich Spa is a beautiful spa town set in the picturesque Worcestershire countryside. A small town of great charm, it owes its existence to the natural brine springs which emanate from subterranean beds of pure rock salt 200ft below the ground. Dissolved by underground springs, artesian pressure forces the salt to the surface as brine.
The celebrated town offers a great range of leisure activities including guided walks, an open air lido and two pretty Green Flag parks. The Droitwich canal network (the Worcester and Birmingham Canal) is a haven for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers and it’s at the gorgeous and modern Droitwich Spa Marina where Cafwin Cruises is privileged to operate from.
Droitwich Spa Marina,
Droitwich Spa Marina is easy to find. For those with Sat Nav, the postcode is WR9 7DU. From Droitwich Spa Town Centre, take the B4090 Hanbury Road towards Alcester. After a series of mini islands, keeping the Droitwich Canal in sight on your left, take the first left after going under the M5. It is signposted from the road.
Disembark at Droitwich Spa Station, where, if pre-arranged, Catherine may be able to collect you and transport you to the Marina and your boat at no extra cost (this will depend on how many hand overs she is dealing with that day and space in her vehicle). If she is not available, then she will be able to provide you with taxi company numbers, but any arrangement will need to be between you and the taxi company including costs.
Cafwin Cruises Ltd is an entirely separate company from Droitwich Spa Marina, but it is the only Hire Boat business based at the beautifully maintained facility and both the Marina and Cafwin Cruises are committed to providing the very best service to our customers. For further details on the Marina please visit their website.
Need food? – Shopping near the Marina
You don’t need to worry about setting off for your holiday with all the food shopping already bought. If you need the full shop, or have just forgotten something small, the largest food convenience store to the Marina is Waitrose; a short 3 minute drive away or a 1.3 mile walk. If you are arriving at Droitwich Spa by train, Catherine will be happy to go with you to pick up any pre-ordered shopping from Waitrose, but this must be pre-arranged.
Droitwich Spa has a large variety of other Chain and Independent shops, details of some can be found here.
