Star Narrowboat Holidays

Unique and affordable boutique style narrowboat accommodation in Salford and Manchester.
Star Narrowboats offer 2 craft for hire. Gloria is a spacious, 57ft narrowboat sleeping 2-4 people. In addition they now own Queenie a 50ft boat which sleeps 2 people. Both boats are moored on the historical Bridgewater Canal and available for traditional narrowboat holiday hire and also static accommodation in Boothstown (15 miles from Manchester airport). Alternatively they can be moored at Castlefield (in the heart of Manchester). 

With solid fuel stoves both boats provide a cosy winter breaks experience - with misty mornings and beautiful early sunsets.
Bring your bike, your walking boots, your camera, visit the city or cruise along the peaceful canal network. A barge holiday aboard Gloria or Queenie can be as relaxing or as active as you choose. You will have good access to the Cheshire Ring, The Four Counties Ring, the Anderton Boat Lift, the Rochdale canal, the Leeds Liverpool canal, the Trent and Mersey and the Lancaster canal. If you are new to canal holidays no problem - we will teach you how to handle the boat, offer advice on what routes to take and we'll make sure you feel happy and ready to go off on your own. The Bridgewater Canal has no locks making it the ideal first narrowboat holiday destination.
