                  Cheshire Canal Boat Hire

                                            Hello, welcome to our brand new website.

"Cheshire Canal Boat Hire" is a family run business operating out of Aqueduct Marina near Nantwich - set up in June 2019, with the aim of hiring out our family boat for others to experience the boating life.

We live in the beautiful village of Farndon on the border between England and Wales.

Myself, (Jeanette) and Paul (my Husband) along with our two sons, Andrew (22) and Adam (17) have always enjoyed boating experiences, whether that's spending a week on the Llangollen canal as a family or taking a cruise around the Mediterranean, you could say its in our blood!!

As a family we own a beautiful 2015 narrow boat which is like our second home. Unfortunately we don't get as much use out of it as we would like, so we have decided to let others cherish the experience of spending time on our boat. "Hills on Water" (named after the previous owners surname "Hill") has all the personal touches you would expect.

It has been treated like our home so hopefully it won't feel like a hire boat,  She is a 6 berth boat but for comfort 5 adults max with maybe one child sharing the large bed at the front of the boat.


"Hills on Water" is moored up at Aqueduct Marina, just outside of Nantwich, it is easily accessible from Cheshire/North Wales/Midlands. Aqueduct Marina has a fabulous onsite bar/restaurant with different events taking place.  Another benefit of Aqueduct Marina is that there is a lock just outside, this gives us a chance to explain/demonstrate how the lock works first hand.  

The location of Aqueduct Marina on the canal network gives you a wide option of routes you can take, of course we can help you and suggest routes depending on your requirements and hire period.
Wherever your destination may be? we are certain you will love cruising the inland waterways of the UK in our lovely boat.

If you have any questions what so ever then please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you for visiting our website and we hope to see you very soon! :)
