                  Cheshire Canal Boat Hire

                                            Hello, welcome to our 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 two beautiful narrowboats.

"Hills on Water"

  • Built in 2015, (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 offered as a self drive holiday hire narrowboat.

"Plane Sailing"

  • Will be finished in July 2022, and named after our two passions, Aviation and Narrowboats! She is our newest narrowboat to the fleet. She has the same layout as Hills on Water, apart from the kitchen being located at the stern. We offer plane sailing as 6 berth- (ideal for 4 adults) narrowboat also at the beautiful Aqueduct Marina. She is perfect for a lovely getaway, and gives a true "boutique" feel. Whether you want a glass of wine on the deck or a hot chocolate in front of the toasty fire! Plane Sailing has been fitted out with exceptional eye to detail. She has been fitted out for all year around living. You are welcome to view before booking (where possible). 

We are based 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 and lovely well kept gardens.  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! :)
