Enjoy a Bridgewater Canal Holiday or Manchester City Break on a stylish widebeam canal boat on-board Castlerose.

CASTLEROSE is 60ft long x 13’6” wide canal barge. She sleeps six and is fitted out with two sumptuous bedrooms & two stylish bathrooms en-suite, a fully fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge with multi-fuel fire and TV.


Castlerose is available for whole boat charter on a self catering basis with “Skipper Steve” or “Skipper Bill” doing the driving. You have the whole boat to yourselves, sleeping upto six, and do all the catering. We just do the driving!

Once we are moored up at the end of each day’s cruise, your skipper leaves you to it for the night and returns to the boat in the morning to continue the adventure!
