The England region

Manchester and the surrounding area is friendly and full of interesting places to visit and things to do. The Bridgewater canal (where our boat is moored) is lock free but if you want to go through some locks and even experience the Anderton Boat Lift you will have easy access to all of this.

“fantastic trip”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2016

We had an amazing long weekend as usual. The boat (Queenie) was absolutely fab, cosy clean and warm and a real head turner. people stopped and looked and had their photos taken beside it. I would recommend this boating experience to everybody. it is a lovely relaxing holiday. Thank you Star Narrowboats.

Owner's reply: And thank you Audrey and James for your great review...welcome back anytime. Hester

“Very clean and comfortable boat - plus can take dogs.”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2012

The boat was very clean unlike the previous 3 narrow boats that I have hired. In particular, the toilet/bathroom, cooker, kitchen untensils were clean. The mattress was very comfortable and was like a mattress that you would have on your bed in terms of comfort and size. The woodburning stove made it feel very cosy during the evening. The external area from which you steer the boat had rails to sit on (unlike some boats where you are forced to stand for the whole time). We were allowed to take our two dogs. There was plenty of storage space. The interior was nicely decorated. There was a supply of CDs and books. The price compares well with other narrow boat hire companies.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your very kind review Caroline. You are all welcome back anytime along with yor University of Manchester discount. Hester
