Yes. All of our boats have a 12v. supply with a car type cigar lighter socket, that can be used with a mobile phone in-car adaptor lead. Plus a 150w Inverter can be supplied.

Yes, but please contact us before you arrive so as we can make sure that the boats you wish to view are available.

Yes, but be careful of storage on the roof as they can easily be damaged by bridges and trees.

We are happy to welcome well-behaved pets. We ask you to please bring pets bedding and keep them off the upholstery and bed linen.

Children love canal boat holidays where they can participate fully. We do have buoyancy aids available for both children and adults. Safety netting can be provided around the cruiser sterns. Cotsides are available for small children.

We have limited car parking space, free of charge, in a secure compound. However, we must limit this to one car per four hirers up to a maximum of three and we request that we keep your car keys in a locked safe for the duration of your holiday. Cars are parked at your own risk and may need to be moved in emergencies – please make sure your car insurance will cover this.

Of course. In addition to offering free bedding we also offer a free supply of towels for our overseas guests free of charge.

Firstly you need to decide which boat suits your needs and budget, then which dates you prefer plus an alternative-just in case!

We offer weekly breaks, or multiples of weeks as well as short breaks at either weekends or during the week.

Yes, all customers are dealt with by our office staff at Middlewich who know all about the boats and routes available. We are not a central booking office.

Boats will normally be available between 2.30pm-4pm on the afternoon of departure. All boats should be returned by 9am and vacated by 9.30am. If a boat is returned late, it will cause delay to the next hirer and therefore, a charge is made for each hour of delay.

No. We have a wide range of maps and guides in our canal shop and online store that can be purchased when booking, or at the start of your narrowboat break. The locals are also very friendly and helpful – just feel free to ask.

We supply enough diesel for a two week cruise. The water tank should be topped up daily. The toilets are designed for the capacity of one weeks normal usage. If you choose or need a pump-out on your holiday it will be at the hirers cost.
