Lancaster Canal Boat Hire

We currently have two beautiful narrowboats, Daisy and Poppy - and have just commissioned Rose, a  semi-traditional narrowboat ready for 2017. All 3 boats are superbly appointed, with Poppy and Rose able to sleep 4 people in comfort. All 3 are also pet-friendly and are ideal for holidaying with your dog.

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.

There are many superb pubs and excellent restaurants to enjoy along the 41 miles from The Last Orders Inn at Ashton-on-Ribble in the south right up to The Longlands Hotel past Carnforth in the north.

Rose – Charming 41ft Narrowboat


We are delighted to announce that we have another fantastic little boat joining us. She was the first boat to have been built by Brayzel Narrowboats of Garstang and has all of the characteristic, clever design and wonderful craftsmanship we enjoy on board our other Brayzel boat, Poppy.

Rose is a 41ft long boat with a more traditional feel. She comfortably accommodates up to 4 people (one fixed and 2 singles) so she is ideal for both couples and small families. Because of her short length, she is just as easy to handle as our other boats.

The lounge area is well proportioned and has a TV/DVD player, radio and a woodburning stove for those chillier evenings, (although there is central heating throughout the boat as well!) The seating converts into 2 single beds. (We provide luxury Duvalay sleeping bags for these beds.)

She has a good sized and well fitted out galley containing everything you are likely to need, including a full sized cooker and fridge, pots, pans and utensils.

The bedroom leads off the galley with all bed linen provided.

The bathroom has a good sized shower and cassette toilet. Towels and complimentary toiletries are provided.

The front deck is generously sized with plenty of room to sit sipping a glass of wine while you enjoy the beautiful Lancashire countryside after a day cruising.

We welcome well behaved pets onboard Rose.

At 45ft in length, she is small enough to manoeuvre whilst comfortably sleeping 4 people. There is one fixed double bed in the bow and one make-up double bed in the lounge area. The modern full central heating is sure to keep you cosy.
