Spring 2018. Our Story So Far!

Steph & I launched our stylish canal barge, Castlerose, just two years ago when we began running our unique boat stay & skippered canal cruises business from Manchester. Doesn’t time fly!

We’ve listened to our guests and are delighted with the wonderful reviews left on Facebook, TripAdvisor, Booking.com and AirBnB. 
We are now offering an exciting programme of cruises for 2018:
We are offering our  Hotel Boat Cruise, when we treat you to full cooked breakfasts and afternoon platters, or a Self Catering Cruise which are available to suit your dates and duration. 
Select from our 6 night Grand Cruise along The Bridgewater Canal, 4 night Cheshire cruise to the charming market town of Lymm, 3 night Lancashire cruise into mining & bird watching country or a 2 night Manchester Heritage cruise to Worsley, birthplace of the English canals via The Barton Aqueduct cruising over The Manchester Ship Canal.
Our cruises begin and end in Castlefield Basin, central Manchester and include an overnight stay in this fantastic corner of Manchester.  The boat sleeps up to six and is fitted out with two sumptuous bedrooms & two stylish bathrooms en-suite, a fully fitted kitchen, dining area and gorgeous lounge with sofa bed, multi-fuel fire and TV.
For more information, browse our website and visit our  Make A Booking” page to view our availability calendar and prices.  Or feel free to Contact Us to discuss how we can make your canal holiday a memorable experience.
We hope to welcome you on-board Castlerose soon!
