Lancaster Canal Boat Hire

Daisy is a beautiful narrowboat sleeping 2/3 people making her perfect for couples or small families. She is cleverly designed to feel much more spacious than other boats of her size. At just 34' she is very easy to handle, making her ideal for both experienced boaters and newcomers alike.
Poppy is a brand new, bespoke narrowboat. At 45' she comfortably accommodates up to 4 people while still being small enough to manoeuvre easily.

Rose is a 41ft long boat with a more traditional feel. She comfortably accommodates up to 4 people (one fixed and 2 singles) so she is ideal for both couples and small families. Because of her short length, she is just as easy to handle as the other boats.
When you begin your holiday, you will be offered you as much tuition as you need. The owners will stay on board until you feel confident with the boat then leave you to enjoy your relaxing holiday on the beautiful, lock-free Lancaster canal, but remember, 24 hour help is only a phone call away!

The price includes: bedding, towels, toilet rolls, washing up liquid, tea towels, umbrella, torch and a full tank of diesel. All boats have a full sized cooker, fridge, TV/DVD player, and all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans you will need.

Daisy and Rose have a cassette toilet while Poppy has an ordinary 'flush' toilet. The heating on board Daisy is provided by a cosy wood burning stove. Poppy provides a touch more luxury with full central heating. Rose has a wood burning stove for those chillier evenings (although there is central heating throughout the boat as well).

Buoyancy aids will be provided free of charge to anybody who requests them. You are strongly advised to take out personal insurance for your trip.

A welcome pack containing tea, coffee, sugar, milk, biscuits and one or two surprises are also included.
