Star Narrowboat Holidays
Star Narrowboat Holidays have two unique, spacious and homely narrowboats for hire for a relaxing British waterways holiday.
You could stay in the city centre or cruise on the canals in and around Manchester and the nearby countryside.
The self-catering boats are open all year round and keep the same price all year too. A solid fuel stove and central heating make staying aboard in the winter months very cosy.
Offering great flexibility, you can hire boats for any number of nights from whatever dates you want – subject to availability.
If you are new to canal holidays no problem – the team will teach you how to handle the boats, offer advice on what routes to take and make sure you feel happy and ready to go off on your own. (The Bridgewater canal has no locks).
A barge holiday aboard Gloria or Queenie can be as relaxing or as active as you choose. You will have good access to the Cheshire Ring, The Four Counties Ring, The Anderton Boat Lift, the Rochdale canal, the Leeds Liverpool canal, and the Trent and Mersey canal.
Star Narrowboat Holidays also offer static houseboat hire on the lovely moorings at the Bridgewater Marina, M28 1YB (9 miles from Manchester city centre & 14 miles from Manchester Airport). Have a look at the photos of ‘Gloria’ which is 57ft (17.37m) & sleeps 2-4 people and ‘Queenie’ which is 50ft (15.45m) & sleeps 2 people.
