Crick officeThe ABNB Office

The ABNB office is situated on the outskirts of Crick, about 30mins drive from Northampton (or about 2 days by boat!).

The Crick Boat Show is held annually just the other side of the A428 West Haddon Road.

Braunston, the hub of the canal system and home to the annual Historic Boat Rally, is approx 15mins drive away.

Many people take advantage of being able to visit a handful of used & new boat brokerages within the area, including in Braunston & Whilton (both near Daventry) and Hillmorton (near Rugby), in their search for a boat.

There's a number of interesting places to visit around the Crick area, so come & make a day of it. Rugby Art Gallery And Museum, Mini Meadows Farm to keep the little ones entertained, Toft Alpacas: a source for buying luxury yarn for your boating garb, Althorp House: home to the nineth generation Spencer family set in 13,000 acres of beautiful countryside, Stanford Hall: a beautiful stately home set in 700 acres, Daventry Country Park: where you can give your dog a good run and there's a cafe overlooking the reservoir.

As a bit of flight relief why not visit the famous Foxton Locks and the inclined plane, near Market Harborough or the Long Buckby flight of locks at Whilton Locks.

Good walking routes from Crick along the towpath and onto the Millenium Wood. For good views, including over Yelvertoft, there's Cracks Hill to climb.

Visit The Moorings restaurant and find a quiet spot to read through our boat brochures whilst enjoying a well earned cuppa!
