Each year we offer static/moored houseboat hire from November to March.
The boat will be based at the Bridgewater marina which is 9 miles by road from Manchester city center, North West, UK. With a solid fuel stove and central heating, the boat is perfect for winter and early spring hideaway. If you have ever fancied staying on a houseboat come and try ours. You will be based on a well-serviced marina. From March to November, the boat is used for narrowboat holiday hire along the canals.
Our boat has a reverse layout, meaning the kitchen is at the back of the boat. Step off the back deck down into the kitchen where there are a gas cooker and hob, fridge/freezer and good quality utensils for self-catering. Into the lounge area, there is a dining table and chairs plus two easy chairs. The solid fuel stove is situated in the middle of the boat. The narrowboat's bathroom is modern and relatively spacious. It has a sink and shower and plenty of handy storage areas with places to hang clothes and towels. The toilet is a plumbed in cassette toilet (with 2 cassettes).
