About The Floatel

The Floatel is brought to you by Drift Away. A small family company offering a modern take on narrowboat hire with our bespoke luxury canal boats.

Throughout the summer months Audrey and Vivien and soon to be Marilyn are used for holidays along the Great British Canals. For more info on summer use click here.


During the winter months (October - February) the boats are what makes The Floatel. Mooring permanently in our home marina, you can book to stay the night or more on our 6 berth boats and get a feel for the canal life. With full central heating on board, all bedding included, Free WiFi & secure on site parking just to name a few features.


Plus if you enjoyed your stay then all Floatel guests receive 10% off the hire of the boats during summer through Drift Away.
