Taster days are available and so are one night taster stays. This gives you the opportunity to try life on a canal boat before booking a longer trip. For a taster day trip we suggest you travel south to Sandon, we have to work between turning points and Sandon is a comfortable day return back to Stone. During this route you can head straight down to Sandon and have lunch at the award winning ‘Dog and Doublet’ or stop off at the Aston Marina or the Greyhound at Burston.
