Our season runs from the beginning of March to the end of October each year. The boats are normally hired on a weekly basis as below:-
Friday morning – Great Bedwyn – 11:30am hire commences – 9:00am finish the following Friday
Saturday morning – Great Bedwyn – 11:30am hire commences – 9:00am finish the following Saturday
If you have any questions about hiring a boat, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01380 721279.
The Trust is a non-profit making organisation. However, a hire charge has to be made to help cover the mooring, licensing, insurance, heating, fuel and other operating costs. The cost is £1150 per week for all the boats except the Rachel, which is a bit smaller and costs £900 per week. In addition to the hire charge, we also charge £50 per week for a cancellation waiver.

We recommend that all hirers look through the Boater’s Handbook prior to their holiday with us which can be found at: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/boating/navigating-the-waterways/boaters-handbook
