a beautiful rural canal Near-ish to London A canal boat that sleeps 6, with everyone getting a separate bed (no sharing a double) Must have "chi-chi" canal side pubs/restaurants "with a vibe". Not too many locks
I have started to Google, but if anyone could steer me in the right direction I would be very grateful.
We used Hoseasons (admittedly quite a few years ago) to book a boating weekend on the Thames. It was absolutely brilliant. We got the boat at Witney and travelled down as far as Lechlade. There are loads of lovely pubs and places to stop at.
You can also go the other way up (down?) the Thames, between Reading and Richmond.
