James, Sabrina & the kids.

We (The Anelay Family) setup Roam & Roost after experiencing frustration ourselves attempting to book narrowboat holidays both for ourselves & later for friends and family. Outdated websites, difficult to use searches, and fragmented information were some of our frustrations and so we set out to build a system that grouped together most the UK’s holiday offerings in an easy to use, simple, comprehensive website. Backed up by great livechat and telephone support from Boaters like ourselves.
Roam & Roost currently offer a choice of 100’s of narrowboat holidays from locations up and down the UK with a focus on partnering with only the best independent hire bases, those that make the extra effort to ensure their hirers have a fantastic, fun and safe holiday afloat.
After falling in love with the UK’s canals and their pace of life we now live full time on narrowboat “IMVUBU”, bringing up our two children, surrounded by nature day in day out it’s important for us to do our bit to help protect it which is why 5% of our revenue goes towards helping the nature that call the canals & surrounding fields home.
