Lancaster Canal Boat Hire & Holidays

Beautiful, cleverly designed narrowboat ideal for both experienced boaters and newcomers alike

Discover the joy of canal boat holidays on the Lancaster Canal. Hire our Canal Narrowboat for a short break or a full weekend and navigate the canal from Preston to Tewitfield. Enjoy the freedom of a Barge Holiday on the Lancaster Canal.

Linking Preston to Kendal, the Lancaster Canal is one of the country’s few contour canals. Built along the natural lie of the land it offers 41 miles of lock free cruising - the longest stretch in the country. As the canal is naturally level, it also lends itself to gentle walking and cycling as well as canoeing and other outdoor pursuits.

In addition to providing spectacular views of the Silverdale Coast, Forest of Bowland and Wyre countryside, the Lancaster Canal also features some of the most impressive canal architecture in the country. The Lune Aqueduct, which is currently is benefitting from a £2.25 million transformation, is one of John Rennie’s finest works and not to be missed.

Daisy is a beautiful narrowboat which sleeps 2/3 people making her perfect for couples or small families.

She is cleverly designed to feel much more spacious than other boats of her size.

At just 34' she is very easy to handle, making her ideal for both experienced boaters and newcomers alike.

As you cruise along the beautiful, lock-free Lancaster canal, visiting lovely villages and canal side pubs along the way, you can relax and unwind aboard "Daisy"... your floating cottage.

When you begin your holiday, we will offer you as much tuition as you feel you need. We will stay on board until you feel confident with the boat then leave you to enjoy your relaxing holiday but remember, 24 hour help is only a phone call away!

The price includes: Bedding, towels, toilet rolls, washing up liquid, sponge, tea towels, umbrella, torch and a full tank of diesel and cassette toilet.
Aboard Daisy you will find a full sized cooker, fridge, TV/DVD player, and all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans you will need.
