  • How to keep a family narrowboat holiday fun!

    While there really is nothing more delightful than a family break on the waterways, sometimes things don't always run as smoothly as they do on dry land - especially if rain gets involved!

    However, with a little preparation a narrowboating holiday with your children can become both an entertaining and educational experience.

    Here's how to have a  really memorable trip:

    Get back to nature

    The British canal and waterway system is simply teeming with life, with birds, insects, fish and mammals all living in abundance within short reach of the banks. This is a great chance for your kids to explore nature and learn more about the environment – if you have the inclination you can even use it as an opportunity to explain more about the impact humans have on the land by pointing out the effects of littering and pollution.

    There is also something beautifully therapeutic about feeding the ducks. For most Brits it’s actually our earliest encounter with any sort of wild animal and even adults can get involved with this enjoyable pastime – which is twice as fun when you’re doing it from the deck of your own canal boat. Turn it into a game with the kids and see how many ducks they can get following the boat and your Hansel & Gretel-esque trail of floating breadcrumbs.

    Get active

    A canal boat holiday is rife with opportunities for getting the children active. They can help with steering and mooring the boat, opening and closing the locks as well as simply running or walking alongside it. Canal paths are also a great, safe space to ride their bikes, and with one person needed on the towpath anyway to open and close the locks, they’ll have somebody close by to supervise them. When not in use the bikes can be secured to the roof.

    Enjoy flexible fun

    One of the greatest things about life on the waterways is the flexibility it affords you – if you have very tiny kids they may not be ready for a full fortnight away from home so a single week would be better, or you may want to take things slow and moor up for a few days at a time – spinning out your trip over multiple weeks. Whatever suits you and your children, you can arrange it with a narrowboat holiday.

    Essentials to bring on a family canal boat holiday

    • Board games –a wide selection will ensure some indoor entertainment when the weather turns bad.
    • Waterproofs – this is Britain remember and there is nothing to put a literal dampener on things than feeling a bit soggy.
    • Dogs – your furry friend is going to love the canal as much as you do. Just remember to bring all their associated gear: leads, bowls, bed and the all-important poo bags!
    • Books – it wouldn't be a real boating holiday without a bedtime reading of  Kenneth Graeme’s The Wind in the Willows.

     

     

     

     

  • 5 simple healthy summer recipes to cook in your caravan or narrowboat

     

    It's almost beginning to feel like the sun is going to break out from behind the clouds. Could it be that summer is actually here?

    We can never be sure in the UK, but just in case, we’ve put together some of our favourite recipes for meals to enjoy on a sunny day. Staying healthy when you’re enjoying a caravan or narrowboat break, can be difficult, but we’ve picked a selection of our favourite filling but healthy recipes.

    These are all tried and tested, though the occasional packet of crisps has been known to sneak in!

     

    healthy recipe caravan narrowboat

    1) Breakfast Tacos

    This super filling breakfast (or lunch or dinner!) dish is not only incredibly easy to make, but also easy to multiply up or down depending on how many hungry mouths you have to feed.

    All you need to do is beat the eggs, spinach and seasoning in a pan, line the tortilla with chopped avocado and some salsa, and add the egg mixture when cooked.

    The dish is filled with brain boosting ingredients, which is handy if you have a day of map reading ahead!

    Ingredients (per person): 1 tortilla, handful chopped spinach, ½ an avocado, some salsa, salt and pepper, 2-3 eggs.

    Optional Ingredients: You can make your taco as fancy as you like, add mushrooms, chicken, sweetcorn, anything!

    Top Tip: If you want to further reduce the fat content, use only the egg whites for the omelette part.

    2) Garlic Prawn and Any Bean Pasta

    The smell of garlic cooking is enough to get anyone’s mouth watering, and this delicious recipe is high in protein, making it super filling. Put your pasta on to cook, and five minutes before the pasta is ready, start cooking the oil, garlic and prawns in another pan for two minutes.

    Then add the beans, cook for a further two minutes (or until the prawns are pink), combine the contents of the two pans and serve with a generous douse of squeezed lemon.

    Ingredients (per person): Handful of pasta (wholegrain is preferable), 5-8 prawns, any green bean or pea (eg runner bean, mangetout etc), 2-3 garlic cloves, olive oil.

    Optional Ingredients: Add chilli for a kick and shallots for texture.

    Top Tip: If you are on your boat or your caravan is near water, try and find a local fisherman who may be able to sell you prawns caught that day.

     

    3) Hawaiian Pizza Wrap

    If you’re craving pizza, but trying to be good this summer, then the pizza wrap is for you!

    Like in your favourite pizza joint; simply the toppings to make your favourite pizza - but instead of spreading over a base, spread the ingredients on your wrap, fold up and you’re ready to go.

    Ingredients (per person): 1 low-fat tortilla, 3 sliced pineapple chunks, 1 tomato sliced, sprinkling low-fat grated mozzarella, 2 slices ham.

    Optional Ingredients: Add sliced black olives and a sprinkling of oregano to create more of a pizza feel.

    Top Tip: This dish is delicious hot or cold, if you’d prefer the cheese to melt you can dry cook the wrap in a frying pan - or pop in your microwave for 20 seconds if you have one.

    4) Bacon & Egg Salad

    Turn your guilty morning fry up into a delicious healthy meal with this crowd pleaser of a dish that is easily made in either a caravan or narrowboat kitchen. First hard boil your egg(s), then when they are cooking, assemble the salad. Peel and quarter the egg(s) and add to your salad before finally frying the fat-trimmed bacon. If you have a kitchen towell to hand soak, up all the bacon’s excess fat, cut it up and toss on. Perfect!

    Ingredients (per person): As much lettuce as you'd like, sweetcorn, tomatoes, cucumber, 1 slice of bacon, 1-2 eggs, low-fat dressing, salt and pepper.

    Top tip: If you have a grill, use that instead to cook the bacon.

     

    5) Creamy Chicken

    Don’t be fooled - just because this dish is creamy, doesn't mean it's not healthy and it's just perfect after a day of exploring in your caravan or boat. Start off by lightly frying the onions and chicken in a pan, add chopped peppers and cherry tomatoes, and when the peppers are cooked add the cream cheese. Stir until melted and serve with wholegrain rice.

    Ingredients (per person): Handful of cooked rice, 1 chicken breast, 6 cherry tomatoes, 1/3 bell pepper, 1/2 onion, 2 tbsp super low-fat cream cheese.

    Top Tip: Some people like to add lemon or lime to the dish, but do so after serving as it can cause the

  • Top Tips to Avoid Caravan Theft

    It is estimated that every year 4,000 caravans are stolen. Given only 10% of these are recovered, in all likelihood if this happens to you, you probably won’t see your caravan again.

    Regardless of the value of your caravan, having your possessions rummaged through and then taken is a horrible experience.

    Here are the best ways to avoid your caravan being taken:

    caravan security

    1) Get handy with a UV pen.

    Write your postcode and any other details you can fit on all over anything that could be removed from your caravan.

    While this won’t stop thieves from taking the items, it will help you get them back if the worst should happen.

     

    2) Take everything out of your caravan.

    Yes it’s a pain, but if you are leaving your caravan for a long period of time, remove everything, even the upholstery.

    The less attractive your caravan looks, the less a thief will be interested in breaking into it. Make sure you keep the curtains, cupboards and drawers open to demonstrate how sparse and unappealing your caravan is.

     

    3) Register your caravan with CRiS

    If you caravan was made in the UK after 1992, then it will automatically be registered with the National Register for Caravan Keepers. But if it is older, you should get it registered.  You’ll be provided with a unique 17 digit number.

    Doing so means if your caravan is stolen, the next owners or the police will be able to track it back to you.

     

     

    caravan security

    4) Fit your caravan with an alarm and tracking device

    Hopefully a blaring alarm will put off thieves from making off with your caravan, but to make your caravan extra secure fit it with a tracking system. This means if your caravan is taken, the police or tracking system operator will be able to track it.

    Always turn your alarm on - even if you are only leaving your caravan for a minute or two.

    We actually  offer a great multipurpose GPS tracker that allows you to keep track of your van (pictured to the right and currently with £30 off!).

     

    5) Keep it in a secure location

    Keeping your caravan in a dedicated, secure space when it’s not in use may seem like an extra cost, but it will give you peace of mind and can even bring your insurance costs down.

    A quick Google search will bring up the one closest to you.

    If this seems like too much hassle, think about employing a caravan sitter should you go away for a couple of days.

     

    6) Lock everything!

    Invest in a hitch lock, a wheel clamp, a wheel lock and any other lock you can lay your hands on to make your caravan look as unmoveable as possible.

     

    7) Keep doors and windows shut

    You may only be popping out of your caravan quickly, but always lock your windows, doors and rooflights. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

  • Thought you knew everything about your caravan and motorhome hobby? Think again!

    We know there’s nothing better than visiting a new place or returning to a favourite one in your motorhome or with a caravan in tow, but did you know you’re actually contributing £6billion to the UK economy or that you’re sharing a hobby with Dame Helen Mirren and Dame Kelly Holmes?

    No?

    Well read on to find out more about the wonderful world of caravans and motorhomes in the UK.

     

    lorraine kelly caravan facts

    1) Caravanning is cool. Ok we’ve always known it – but now big name celebrities have cottoned on too, with Dame Helen Mirren, Billie Piper and Dame Kelly Holmes both members of the Caravan Club.

    There’s also a chance you’ll find yourself pitching up next to Loraine Kelly or Linda Barker on your next caravan trip, though whether that’s a good thing, we’ve yet to decide!

     

    2) Caravanning actually contributes more than £6billion to the UK economy every year and the industry employs more than 130,000 people – making it of huge importance to the UK’s economy.

     

    3) If you live in your caravan you are classed as being of ‘no fixed abode’ and if you want to have your voice heard in a general, local or European election the way you need to register to vote is a little different than if you live in a ‘fixed abode.’

    We write all about it here for the Canal and River Trust (just swap the word narrowboat for caravan!)

     

    caravan facts

    4) In the UK, more than 51 million nights are spent in caravans each year.

     

    5) There’s a lot of us. In fact there are more than 1million leisure caravans in use (that’s totalling touring caravans, motorhomes and caravan holiday homes).

     

    6) More people are caravanning than ever before. In 2009 one in five people were going on either a camping or caravanning holiday, now it’s one in three.

     

    7) The most popular countries UK residents to go on a caravan holiday are the UK, followed by Spain then France.

     

    most expensive caravan in britain

    8) The most expensive caravan in Britain was sold for a staggering £550,000 and comes complete with an iPhone controlled heating system (we thought all caravans had these!!).

    The static caravan based in North Wales was built to mark the 75th anniversary of park owners, Haulfryn Holiday Homes.

    Despite having an integrated sound and television system, underfloor heating and an en suite spa shower and toilet, it is technically still a caravan because of its wheels and chassis.

  • How to vote if you are live in your caravan, motorhome or boat

     

    If you want to vote in the general, local and European elections you must be registered to vote.

    But if you are of ‘no fixed abode’ this can seem a little tricky and can apply if you live in your caravan, motorhome or boat.

    Here we explain what to do if you don’t have a residential address:

    • vote caravan motorhome boatFirstly, check where you are living doesn’t have a permanent mooring or a permanent address – if it does, you can register to vote here. The process is the same as if you were living in a built property; just enter your details into UK/Register-To-Vote and you’ll be registered.

     

    • Definitely not of a ‘fixed abode’?! Then you must instead register a declaration of local connection. This basically tells the government that even though you don’t, in their eyes, live in the area you still have a vested interest in it and are eligible to vote.

     

    • vote caravan motorhome boatContact your local electoral registration office (Google will be able to help you here!) and give them the details of a place where you have a connection, this could be a workshop you use, a work place or some other place in the local area that you spend time.

     

    • The electoral office will process your application, and once complete you’ll be able to register to vote.

     

    • Register to vote.

  • The best pet-friendly touring and campsites in Scotland

    Back in February we shared our favourite pet-friendly touring and campsites in England and we were thrilled with how popular it was.

    We’ve spent a lot of time discussing our favourite holidays on the other side of Hadrian’s wall to create a list of our favourite places in Scotland where you can take a caravan, motorhome or tent AND your dog.

    Now the sun has finally made an appearance, what could be nicer than exploring Scotland with your four-legged friend by your side?

    Here are our top five:

    1) Loch Greshornish Caravan & Campsite, Isle of Skye

     Situated in one of the world’s most beautiful locations, this Inner Hebrides working croft welcomes both cats and dogs.

    Skye is filled with dramatic scenery, walks and lots of fishing as well as a cottage arts scene and if cooking round the campfire gets a little tiring then the Michelin starred Three Chimneys isn’t far away.

    The site itself offers loch-side hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes as well as camping pitches.

    It holds several awards including the AA Scotland Campsite of the Year 2012 and has twice won the ‘Loo of the year’ award!

    Cost: The pricing varies depending on whether you are a member of the Camping and Caravan Club or not. 

     

    2) Braidhaugh Holiday Park, Perthshire

    This beautiful pet friendly campsite is situated located near Crieff in central Scotland, making it a short journey from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee.

    As well as being absolutely stunning, the area is rich in history and offers lots to do come rain or shine.

    Located on the river Earn, it’s possible to get a fishing license – though we’re not sure how helpful your pet will be!

    It has wifi, disabled facilities, a play area and a TV room and welcomes caravans and motorhomes as well as having its own permanent camping pods.

    Cost: A serviced hardstanding electric pitch costs from £22 a night for two adults.

     

    3) Thurston Manor, East Lothian

    Situated in close proximity to Edinburgh, Thurston Manor is the perfect location to either escape from the city or get into it for day trips.

    Its surrounding sandy beaches and rolling hills are just the type dogs yearn to frolic in and the site also offers a heated pool, sauna and steam room for tired dog-owners!

    While there is a bar and restaurant on site, if you want to cook for yourself there is an onsite shop or a supermarket just a five minute drive away.

    Tents, caravans and motorhomes welcome.

    Cost: Prices start from £13.45 for 6 people.

     

    4) Isle of Iona Campsite, Isle of Iona

    This really is the place to get away from it all though, as no cars are allowed on the island, this is only one for campers.

    The tiny island of Scotland’s West Coast is famous for its religious history as a centre of Gaelic monasticism as well as its tranquil unspoiled beauty.

    From the campsite you and your pet will be able to visit the island’s monasteries, royal burial sites, beaches and rock pools by bicycle, horseback or foot.

    The campsite itself offers showers, a washing up area, a small shop as well as the occasional sighting of an otter or two!

    Cost: From £13 per night for two people

     

    5) Queensberry Bay Holiday Park, Dumfriesshire

    This beautiful West coast holiday park is easily accessible from the North of England and offers a wide range of accommodation options.

    You can pitch your own tent, campervan or motorhome or stay in one of the caravan or pods onsite – dogs are welcome here too!

    There are beaches and rockpools to explore and while it is true the site offers incredible views, we do have to say it’s the delicious bacon sandwiches the onsite shop sells that keep us coming back.

    Cost: Prices start from £15 a night

  • The Ultimate Generator Guide: How to buy the best generator for your leisure needs



    There are many makes and models of generator out there (at Sail and Trail, we stock more than 100!) so it isn’t always easy knowing which generator is the best fit for you and your needs.

    Essentially you should be basing your purchase on four things; its portability, power, noise and fuel requirements:

    Portability

    Kipor Suitcase Generator for Caravan Camping

    First things first, if you’re after a generator for leisure use (camping, boating etc) you want it to be quiet and portable – avoid back up or standby generators as these are designed for blackouts or hefty models that are meant to aid construction work.

    Suitcase generators are the lightest and most portable. The Kipor IG1000 pictured here is an incredibly popular model.

     

    Power

    Work out how much power you’ll want or need. If it’s for your motorhome or caravan you’ll need to think about your air con / heating unit (if you have one) as well as adding up all the electrical devices you may need or want to run at one time.

    At the lower end of the scale a 700w generator is mainly for charging, small TVs and mobiles/laptops. But the most popular models are the 2000w models as this will run just about everything you could throw at it in a motorhome/caravan apart from some household kettles which can be above 3000w and any air conditioning or electric heating units

    If all you are looking for is to be able to charge or power small items then a 1000w generator will be fine, but it won't cover items like a microwave or a hairdryer. This is because even though an 800w microwave in theory should run under 1000w, most items with a heating element start at double or even triple their rated wattage, so an 800w microwave will roughly start at 1600w. This is why you will see a peak power and then a constant power on the descriptions for generators.

    If you’re boating or camping then you’re likely to be fine with 1,000-2,000 watts. If you want to work out the exact figure, add up the power of everything you are likely to want to be running at the same time (If it is given in amps, multiply the amps by volts to get the watt value).

    However it is important to remember that the power requirements are balanced, and while many people in a motorhome might add up all of their appliances and get 4kw, not all are turned on at once; so if you use the microwave for a few minutes, you might not be able to boil the kettle until it is finished.

     

    Noise

    SDMO quiet generator for camping and caravanning SDMO quiet generator for camping and caravanning

    All generators make noise but now there are some models out there that are actually quieter than a normal conversation.

    EU regulations mean a generator's sound has to be measured from a certain point, rather than in standard decibels which can be a little confusing.

     

    To get a better idea of how decibels work, regular conversation is about 60 decibels and painful noise about 140!

    The SDMO Inverter PRO models are some of the best when it comes to keeping the noise down. In fact, the 3000 model pictured above is so quiet we say it’s ‘whisper quiet' at only 51dB(A) @ 7m.

    Fuel requirements

    LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) generators are the most popular generators for leisure use as they are more efficient and cheaper to run than petrol or diesel generators.

    In fact LPG is about half the price of petrol, and because it produces cleaner emissions you’ll be able to use it in many public spaces unlike with a diesel or petrol generator.

    However, they do have a higher initial cost than a petrol generator, so provide the best value when they are used regularly.

    Petrol generators can be converted to LPG generators with conversion kits like these ones.

     

    We have lots of technical guidance at Sail and Trail, first of all check out our handy guide https://www.sailandtrail.co.uk/generatorfaq.

  • Should I Get Solar Panels for my Caravan or Motorhome?

    Getting away from it all is a wonderful experience, but as much as we love getting back to nature not having electricity can make for a miserable trip.

    While many people opt for a LPG generator, there are actually huge benefits to investing in portable solar panels to power your appliances when camping, caravanning or boating;

    solar panels generator caravan motorhome
    • Solar panels help you save money - the sun’s energy is free!

    Not only is a portable solar panel cheaper than a generator but you'll also no longer be spending money on petrol, LPG or diesel for a generator. The more you use it, the more your solar panel will begin to pay for itself.

    • Solar Panels are good for the environment

    First of all, solar panels don't produce carbon emissions and secondly if you knock your panel over by accident there won’t be any dangerous spillages.

    • They make little to no noise.

    If you find the constant buzzing of a generator ruins a peaceful getaway then solar panels will make a welcome change to your caravan or boat holiday.

    • They are more portable than a generator.

    In fact, you can fold up portable solar panels.

    • They don’t actually rely on it being sunny.

    Logically you would assume that for a solar panel to work it has to be sunny. However, this isn’t actually the case and your panel will still generate energy in cloudy conditions. It is important for them not to be too shaded, though.

    While your solar panel won’t work at night, the energy it produces in the day can be stored in a battery.

    solar panel caravan motorhome

    However, it is important to bear in what your solar panel will actually be able to power:

    What can I power with a 40-Watt solar panel?

    A 40-Watt solar panel like this one will be able to power a wide range of small objects you might want to take away on your caravan or motorhome holiday including a clock radio, stereo, mobile and tablet.

    What can I power  with a 60-Watt solar panel?

    A 60-watt solar panel (which we sell for £240) is enough to recharge your laptop, tablet or smartphone, as well as to generate enough electricity to power a lightbulb (though be sure to check the wattage before you take to the road!).

    Depending on the wattage you may also be able to power items like a portable fridge as well as all the things a 40-Watt solar panel can power.

    What can I power with a 90-Watt solar panel?

    We sell a 90-Watt solar panel for £299 and with this you should be able to power items like a fan, run a mac book pro, even a printer and tv should you want.

    You will also be able to power all the things a 40-Watt and 60-Watt solar panel can power.

     One last thing:

    And finally, another thing worth remembering is that while there has been a lot in the news about home and landowners being paid by the government to generate solar electricity (Feed In Tariff) this scheme does not apply to off grid devices.

     

  • Camping with your cat: Everything you need to know

    The camping season is almost upon us, but what do you do about your pets when you want to get away for the weekend?

    We recently listed some great camp and touring sites in England that cater for pets – but while taking your dog away with you may seem straight forward, there are a few things you should think about before whisking away your whiskered friend.

    If you are hoping to take your cat on a caravanning trip, the same rules apply – there’s just less canvas to be clawed….

     

    1) Use your common sense!

    camping and caravanning with your catIf your cat gets car sick, is prone to running away and hates being put in his/her travelling cage, then camping is probably not for them!

    It is also worth bearing in mind that if you are staying at a campsite known for being pet friendly, then there are likely to be dogs around. If you cat is not used to them, this can be upsetting for your cat.

    It can be an amazing thing to share your holiday with your feline family, but if they are going to hate it or, worse, run away then it is best to leave them at home with a trusted minder.

     

     2) Pack lots of treats and familiar faces

    While cats aren’t as malleable as dogs are for the hint of a treat, it’s worth having a decent back-up of your cat’s favourite snacks to hand.

    Also make sure to line their travel box with a familiar smelling blanket and toy, while your cat may turn their nose up at them initially, they will secretly be grateful for recognising something in an environment that’s unfamiliar.

    Not quite as cute, but do also invest in a disposable litter tray.

     

    3) Don’t forget your cat’s first aid kit

    Sometimes accidents happen, so it is important to make sure you have at least a basic first aid kit on hand for your cat in case something happens and there isn’t a vet for miles.

    Typically it should include bandaging equipment, tweezers, a blanket and antiseptic wipes or lotion.

     

    4) Get your cat used to being on a lead ….

    …. they going to be spending a lot of time wearing one! If you keep returning to the same camping spot with your cat then they should eventually get used to the area, but until then you’re going to want them where you can see them.

    They will need a harness and a lead that you can attach to a tie out stake/ anchor or a washing line strung up between two trees or posts.

     

    5) Do a full test run

    caravan and camping with your cat or pet

    If you are planning on heading far from home for more than a night it is worth doing a full test run. Pop your cat in its harness and into its travel box, drive around for a bit and then take it out to explore some new surroundings on its lead. If at any point it seems overly disturbed or defensive, then you may want to rethink the actual trip.

    Remember to see how much your cat likes being in a tent, especially if you are planning on leaving it in there and you want to guarantee when you return your tent is more than shreds of material. In this instance, it’s much easier to go caravanning with a cat!

     

     

     

     

     

     7) And never ever forget this ....

    Whether you chose to put your cat on a lead, keep it in a pen, or let it roam free make sure it has access to shade and water, and never ever keep it cooped up in your car, caravan or tent for too long.

    Good luck and happy camping!

  • Inspirational Caravan Interiors That’ll Make You Want to Get Redecorating Today

    We love getting away from it all in a caravan or motorhome, but until recently it has never been considered an especially glamourous hobby. Now it’s all the rage to have a vintage caravan or Airstream in tow, but for those of us who prefer (or are lumbered with!) a more run of the mill version there’s no reason why we can’t still inject a little luxury to inside of our vehicle. The beauty of interiors is that don’t need to have a fancy model for it to look great on the inside as these inspirational pictures show:

     

    Caravan1Using light colours is a great way to make a small space look bigger. The cream of the throw here really does this, while its colours brighten the place up (and hides dirty smudges!). Image courtesy of lisaleonardonline.com

    caravan2Adding new curtains and / or cushions to your caravan or motorhome is the cheapest and easiest way to give it a new look. If you’re feeling creative you could make your own curtains and cushion covers. Not for you? Pick up charming readymade items for very little at any haberdashery or furnishing store like Dunelm Mill.

     

    caravan3 While this look isn’t one for the faint hearted, it’s certainly original! So maybe you don’t want to go for the full polka dot look just yet, but introducing a few spots will completely transform your caravan’s interior. It’s a clean print so manages to look both modern and classic, and if you chose light shades it will really brighten the small space you do have up. Image courtesy of Poppytalk.

    How great is this map wallpaper? This would work especially well if you have a touring caravan and you could map the places you have been. OS maps can be found super cheaply in in charity shops and on eBay. If decorating the whole interior with maps is a bit much for you, a feature board is a great way to incorporate something a bit different.
