This is holiday in slowmotion or minute by minute. Nice activity for grandparents or familyes with older children who likes to take it easy. Boats are comfortable and easy to handle when you got the hang of it after short time. Landscape and canal systems are beautiful and well organised. Have a nice trip. We are going back soon!

Thoroughly enjoyable week from beginning to end. Everything we needed was provided even a life jacket for the dog! We went to Llangollen- very scenic, with not too many locks and therefore plenty of time for knitting while sitting enjoying the views and wildlife from the little front seating area in the bow. Dog enjoyed it too and only fell... More

Have never hired a boat from here under the new owners but they put on great entertainment a few times a year. For my husband and I this is one of the very best venues during the Middlewich FAB festival weekend.

We rented a small narrowboat (42 feet) for a week and had the time of our lives! Josh and Mark made it easy for us to learn the ropes quickly (although I am sure they wondered if they'd ever see old Hazel again!) and we enjoyed a week-long cruise out to Trevor and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Recently refurbished, the Hazel... More

Just returned from a great week aboard the Montgomery navigator from middlewich narrowboats. It was our first canal hol, (2 adults, 2 girls 6 & 9) so had quite a few questions, and a little apprehensive about "driving" the boat, locks etc but it was all covered really well and patiently by the team, they saw us through the first...

What a fantastic company to hire from. On behalf of Fazakerley High School, I hired three boats: Elm, Llangollen & Whitchurch. The Company were more than patient with me as we booked and paid for the trip and even more helpful as the day of departure approached. The three boats were ready for departure hours ahead of schedule and were... More

Thanks for your review. Thanks for coming too. I think you're our first customers with a tortoise! We've had all sorts, following you on Wrenbury, our smallest boat, the customers had the largest Great Dane I've ever seen! The challenge is set now, who can have the most interesting pets aboard.

We first used Middlewich Narrowboats when we were wondering how to have a short break with our elderly mother, ourselves and the children. We went at Easter,last year. It was fantastic and ticked every box. The staff were excellent and made sure that we could work the boat properly before we left and took time to see us through the... More

We have just spent a week on Hazel on the Llangollen Canal and had a fantastic time. The boat is fitted out to a very high standard, the lighting was lovely, great kitchen and lovely taps. The hand basin took some getting used to but it did not detract from the brilliant experience. The team are very relaxed but helpful... More
