Star Narrowboat Holidays

14 Quayside Cl, Worsley, Manchester M28 1YB


Unique, spacious & warm, narrowboat holiday hire & houseboat accommodation based in Salford and Manchester. Star Narrowboat Holidays offer 2 boats for hire. ‘Gloria’ is a 57ft narrowboat sleeping up to 4 people and ‘Queenie’ is a 50ft boat which sleeps 2 people.

Both boats are moored on the historical Bridgewater Canal and available for narrowboat holiday hire and also static accommodation in Boothstown (15 miles from Manchester airport and only 9 miles from Manchester city centre). Both with solid fuel stoves the boats provide a cosy winter break experience - with misty mornings and beautiful early sunsets.

You can stay close by their leafy mooring or venture out by car or public transport. They are open all year round, keep the same price all year too and the hire prices are inclusive of bedding, towels, fuel, a boat handling lesson and 24hr on-call support. They offer great flexibility in that you can hire the boats for any number of nights from whatever dates you want – subject to terms and availability, however, please note minimum 3-night bookings are available from March to November aboard 'Gloria'.

New to canal holidays? No problem, Hester, the owner will teach guests how to handle the boats, offer advice on what routes to take and will make sure you feel ready to go off on your own (if you stay on the Bridgewater canal there will be NO LOCKS).
