Welcome to Silsden BoatsBoating Holidays in the Yorkshire Dales.

Silsden Boats offers family boating holidays, weekend and short breaks on the canals across the Yorkshire Dales.

Our luxurious range of narrow and wide-beam boats all come equipped with full central heating, hot water, toilets, showers and a full tank of fuel. We even welcome pets.

So if you are looking for a relaxing holiday set in the beautiful countryside of the North Yorkshire Dales, travelling along the scenic network of canals – then Silsden Boats boating holidays should be your first choice.

The Routes

The UK canal system held its 200th anniversary in 1994. The system forms a network over the whole of England spreading into Wales and forms vital links of a bygone era between all the commercial centres of the country. The network now offers a unique opportunity for holidays to suit every age and taste.

For a one week cruise, you may cruise to Foulridge and experience the tunnel, before turning to cruise and visit the famous Five Rise Locks at Bingley with the even more famous lock-keeper: Barry Whitelock. The return trip will complete your week’s cruise.

Alternatively, you may wish to cruise west through the village of Kildwick and on to the market towns of Skipton and Gargrave in the Yorkshire Dales. Continue cruising through the bleaker hills of the Pennines onto Burnley and then return to Silsden.

Thinds to do and see

Whatever your tastes there’s plenty of things to see and do en route during your holiday.You can simply watch the world drift by taking in the dramatic scenery which is a pre-requisite which ever route you choose.

Travelling west you encounter Skipton, gateway to the Dales and beyond this the beautiful Yorkshire Dales scenery with its rugged moorland, limestone caves and gorges leading into the industrial towns of Burnley and Blackburn.

Moving east towards the Leeds, you can visit the Haworth Parsonage home of the Brontes sisters, or visit Saltaire the Victorian model village built by Sir Titus Salt for his mill workers.

The canal presents a unique opportunity to see wildlife such as kingfishers and herons in their natural habitat.

At East Marton the canal towpath combines with the Pennine Way for a few miles, which together with numerous other footpaths, gives the hiker a chance to explore the dales on foot, using the boat as a base for walking.
