Star Narrowboat Holidays

Star Narrowboat Holidays, is an independent, narrowboat hire now based at Anderton Marina on the Trent and Mersey canal. We are independent of the marina and any other business operating from there. We offer superb quality and reasonably priced canal boat hire in the Northwest of England, UK. We feel proud to offer two unique boats and a memorable experience to all who stay aboard 'Woodstock' and 'Queenie'.

We have been enjoying great success since we started in June 2012, we've welcomed guests (beginners and experienced hirers) from many different places such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Singapore, Spain, the Netherlands, Israel and of course all over the UK. We started with 'Gloria' and in 2014 we brought 'Queenie' to the water. In October 2016 we gained Quality Accredited Boatyard (QAB) status. In 2020 we sold 'Gloria' and built our new boat 'Woodstock'.

We offer narrowboat holiday hire - where you take the boat out on the canal - and we also offer static hire. If you would like a static hire with a skippered boat trip we can arrange this option please ask for more info. We hope you like our website, the gallery pictures will give you a good idea of our boats and the surrounding area where they are based.

You are welcome to come and visit us and look over ‘Woodstock' and 'Queenie' and if you fancy a test run before you decide whether to make a booking or not we can arrange that.
