Taking a short break over 3 nights from Friday to midweek breaks Monday to Friday gives lots of time to relax and explore the tranquil routes from Sawley Marina along the Trent and Mersey Canal or the River Soar.

Having a longer break for one or two weeks will take you further along the canals again with many breathtaking routes towards the historical Potteries of Stoke on Trent or Newark on Trent with its beautiful castle and market.

“Thank you so much for taking care of us so well! Despite the weather we have had a lovely ‘Covid’ time and escaped from the world. Our Honeymoon has been fantastic, I finally got to grips with those locks and Pete became VERY expert at steering.”  Pete and Jan.
