We offer 2 night trips between Manchester and the Peak District (Bugsworth Basin), and between the Peak District and Macclesfield. Come on your own and join a trip, or charter the boat with friends.
Your hosts Mark & Ruth will take care of everything, though you’re welcome to have a go at steering and help out with locks. We are like a floating hostel and have 2 cabins of 4 bunks each, taking up to 8 guests at a time (or 10 for a charter trip). We provide all meals and include complimentary fair-trade tea, fresh ground coffee, and hot chocolate with marshmallows.
We have an honesty bar and have a beer pump so you can even pull your own pint! We run trips with and without locks, and can also arrange other activities such as walking, mountain biking or kayaking.
