Bruce Accessible Boats at Great Bedwyn


The Bruce Branch has a fleet of four wide-beam boats. Hannah sleeps 12, Rebecca and Diana 10, and Rachel six. Each boat has the highest quality accommodation and the ultimate flexibility for people with a wide variety of special needs. They all have a fully equipped galley with cooker and fridge, microwave, central heating and flushing toilet. The extra width of the boats provides excellent manoeuvrability for wheelchair users and they have all been designed to give wheelchair users the opportunity to steer by using the tiller.

Built in facilities:


    boarding ramps

    Low-level bunks

    Specially fitted showers and W.C.s

    Large, low-set windows

    Scissor-action hospital bed on The Rebecca


Additional equipment available on request:

    Transfer hoist

    Shower chair


    Cot sides

    Perching stool


We’re ideally situated for a pleasant cruise east towards Hungerford, Newbury and Reading, or westward through Bruce Tunnel and Honeystreet and on to the Caen Hill Flight at Devizes.

The boats are available for weekly hire for self-catering, self-steer holidays. We ask that the Team Leader for your group has had at least one week of previous canal boat experience – otherwise we ask you to join us on one of our training weekends in the Spring. We also offer day trips, crewed by our voluntary helpers, when we have a boat available.
