Step aboard this quaint canal boat for 2 and enjoy a tranquil stay on the water with stunning views of the Lancashire and Yorkshire countryside along the way. This is GLAMPING with a difference.

The Little Blue Canal Boat is moored at the top of the famous Five Rise Locks in Bingley. This gives you the option of going through the famous staircase locks on your first day as you meander down towards Saltaire ( a world heritage site, and home to a good many festivals during the summer season ), and then on to the big city lights of Leeds. Or set off toward Skipton where you can explore the Castle from the depths of its dungeons to the top of the watchtower. Then enjoy a drink and snack at the local tearooms before taking in the beauty of Skipton Castle Woods and no locks until Gargrave close to the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and great walking country. The choice really is yours!

Little Blue itself offers a simple lifestyle with all the basics that you need in a tiny living space. Sleeping 2 people and a dog, there is a lounge area with log burning stove, DAB radio and the vital USB charging point, so you can plan your days out! There is no TV on the boat, so make sure you bring a good book or maybe a few board games to entertain you during the evenings. The kitchen is compact but has everything you need to cook the perfect meal or simply enjoy a meal out at your village stop. A 6 foot by 4 foot sofa bed completes the boat along with a shower room and toilet.

A practical training handover will be done before you start your holiday and assistance is available 24/7. Bookings available with Friday arrivals for 3-7 night stays.

Weekend rates range £200 - £400 and weekly rates from £285 - £650 depending on the time of year. A dawn @til dusk stay is possible in low season with prices from £85 - £100, please enquire for high season.
