Sailing opportunities in the UK whilst you rent a holiday home
Enjoy your sailing all year round when you go on a boating holiday
Although June, July and August offer the best weather for a boat holiday or sailing holiday, it is possible to enjoy the British countryside all year round. The south of England will offer you a generally warmer climate, but heat waves are not common.
Finding affordable accommodation to suit all your needs should be easy with a British boating holiday. You can keep things traditional and enjoy the rural delights of the country with a holiday cottage. Prefer more modern surroundings? A holiday apartment is a great choice if you're after simple and sleek accommodation.
Britain is used to holiday makers with boats, so you will have no problem finding a spot for lunch or dinner when you want to take a break from your nautical adventure. There are various pubs and restaurants along most canals with places to park your boat. It is advised however that you reserve somewhere in high season.
