6-Berth Narrowboat in Rural Warwickshire

Welcome to Rowington Narrowboats

Our beautiful narrowboat, Smoke, is nestled in an idyllic setting in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside on the Grand Union Canal

She is a 61’ Semi-Trad Tug Style Narrowboat built in 2016 and comfortably sleeps 6 people in 3 separate cabins - 2 with double beds and 1 with two side-by-side single beds. 

In season (Mar-Sep) we let the narrowboat out for cruising for either a whole week (change-over day Friday) or for a weekend (Friday to Monday) or Midweek (Monday to Friday). Check in is 3pm and check-out is 10am. Out of season by negotiation we can let out for shorter periods or bespoke check in/out times.

We have off-street secure parking for up to 3 cars and an EV charging point so we can charge your car for a nominal fee.

We are pet friendly (but do take a deposit just in case of deposits!)

Smoke is moored on the Grand Union canal in Rowington near Warwick and offers wonderful opportunities for anyone wanting to discover the Stratford-upon-Avon, Coventry, Worcester & Birmingham or Birmingham & Fazeley canals or indeed (for those with 2 weeks on their hands) the Warwickshire Ring.

The wonderful towns and cities of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Royal Leamington Spa and Birmingham are accessible within a day alongside miles of beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The boat is rented on the basis of taking it out cruising on the canals rather than staying in situ on our home mooring.

If you are staying close at hand then the fabulous Tom o' The Wood pub is literally next door and comes highly recommended for drinking and dining. There are dozens of other pubs on the canals within striking distance also!
