Heritage Narrowboats is based on the Macclesfield Canal, and offers the perfect location to start your holiday narrowboat hire. Explore the outstandingly beautiful Cheshire plains on one our holiday narrowboats. Ideally placed for the ‘Four Counties Ring’ , ‘Cheshire Ring‘ and Llangollen canals. We have a wide choice of holiday hire narrow boats to suit parties of all sizes and make-up; you are assured of a relaxing and enjoyable break.
Sometimes called a ‘long boat’ or ‘barge’, a ‘narrow boat’. One can travel at a leisurely 3 miles an hour, and you cannot help but relax and unwind.
There are routes for ‘first timers’, for instance through ‘Bosley Locks’ and up to the ‘Peak Forest Canal‘, allowing you to cruise without too many locks allowing the new user to get a feel for the boat.
It is the sort of holiday that can appeal to everyone, and is a great way to escape from the pressures of modern life, travelling through the beautiful countryside by day and mooring for the night near a friendly canal side pub or a peaceful stretch on the tow path. Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday on a narrow boat, or our canal side holiday bungalow, moorings for your own boat, or just a day on the water on one of our day boats, Heritage Narrow Boats has something to offer all those wishing to relax and spend time on or around the water.
