We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Star Narrowboat Holidays

We have 2 boats on offer - Gloria is a spacious, 57ft, narrowboat and sleeps 2-4 people and Queenie, our new boat, is a 50ft, 2 berth boat. We have been enjoying great success since we started operating just near Manchester in June 2012. our boats are moored on the Bridgewater Canal at the Bridgewater Marina near Worsley. Both boats offer their own unique blend of boutique style and traditional homely cosiness enabling you to relax and escape from everyday life.

You will have good access to the Cheshire Ring, The Anderton Boat Lift, the Rochdale canal the Trent & Mersey canal and the Leeds Liverpool canal.

We operate all year round as Gloria has a solid fuel stove and gas central heating and Queenie has a solid fuel stove - so winter breaks can be very comfortable with misty morning and beautiful early sunsets.

We keep the same prices all year round which means you won't get charged a higher fee for taking your hire during school holiday times. We also aim to be as flexible as possible in terms of how many nights the boats can be booked for.

If you are new to canal holidays no problem - we will teach you how to handle the boat, offer advice on what routes to take and we’ll make sure you feel happy and ready to go off on your own.

Our boats are ideal for traditional narrowboat holidays, self catering accommodation whilst you visit Manchester, an alternative to the usual hotels normally popular for business and corporate stays and for anyone wanting to experience a holiday on a houseboat.

We have collected some great reviews and testimonials and have welcomed back various people who have come back for another holiday.
