The Wessex Rose is built for luxury cruising and relaxation and we are there to ensure your break is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, but for the energetic and/or adventurous, why not venture off the boat for a little while and explore some of the most beautiful and gentle countryside in Britain.
Walking alongside the canal or river can be as gentle as a stroll along the tow path, venturing into nearby towns and villages or visiting local attractions but for more adventurous and/or energetic walkers there are numerous opportunities for longer expeditions into the neighbouring countryside.
On the Wessex Rose we have a selection of OS Explorer 1:25000 maps covering the area around each of our cruises which you are welcome to use if you wish to explore. We are happy to help you plan a route and suggest popular landmarks and features worth visiting.
Depending on how energetic you are feeling you may like to take a morning walk and meet up with the boat again for for lunch or if you prefer a longer full day walk, we can arrange a packed lunch for you.
