Our Wonderful Narrowboat Holidays

Have you ever dreamed of floating peacefully among the magnificence of our tranquil and stunning countryside? At FloatingDreams.co.uk, based in Nantwich, Cheshire, our narrowboat hire service provides you with the perfect boating holiday experience.  Whether it’s a chilled out break for two, or an adventure holiday for the entire family, narrowboating is suitable for people of all ages to enjoy. Get involved in the entire narrowboat experience by working the locks, plotting the route, and steering your way down the canal. Remember to say hi to any passing ducks and swans...and watch out for Kingfishers and Herons fishing near you.


Your boating holiday starts at Nantwich Marina which is on the Shropshire Union canal in Cheshire. Llangollen, Chester and Middlewich are all within cruising distance. Exploring canals aboard our narrowboat makes for a fascinating, exciting, and unforgettable holiday experience. As a new day comes, you’re provided with another chance to explore new places and take in the eye-catching surroundings. As you wind your way through the countryside and pass through countless towns and villages, you’re free to travel at your own pace. Watch out at who'se passing. Narrowboating and The Llangollen Canal are a known favourite of a certain Harrison Ford!

Bask in the Surroundings

Moor up at the end of a thrilling day narrowboating and exploring the countryside and unwind in the middle of nowhere. With nothing but the country wildlife for company, what’s not to love about the peace and quiet that a narrowboat offers? Light the fire, pour a refreshing glass of wine, and chill out as you sit and watch a gorgeous sunset. As the stars come out, you’re truly able to get to one with nature. What’s more, there are many walks to experience along the towpath where you’ll get the chance to witness UK wildlife at its very best.


The location gives access to some of the most fantastic canals and places to visit, such as Ellesmere, Market Drayton, Chester, Middlewich, and Llangollen. On the way to Llangollen, you will pass over the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which is an absolutely stunning view from our narrowboat.


For the more experienced and adventurous narrowboaters, there is no limit. Even London can be reached by canal.
