The Ashby Canal and Stoke Golding
The Ashby Canal is an unspoilt and lock-free rural canal winding its way through picturesque countryside on the Warwickshire/Leicestershire boarder. Travel north past the Battle of Bosworth Field or south onto the Coventry Canal and join the Oxford and Grand Union canals with a wide choice of canal and waterways cruising.
Stoke Golding is a picturesque village situated in the heart of the English countryside, a two hour drive from London or Manchester and with excellent access by both road and rail. Collection from a local railway station can be provided. The village has a 13th Century church, three good pubs, a post office and a grocery store.
For a larger shop prior to your holiday there is a Morrisons supermarket just two miles from the boatyard. Or arrange your grocery delivery from Tesco, Ocado or Asda.
