A Cheshire Ring Canal Boat Hire holiday offers many options for a getaway on the waterways. The ring canal is situated in the North West of England and is ninety-seven miles long. This can be done in the space of one week with a crew of two but there are many starting points along the route, which offer out and back trips and short breaks. The boats used are mainly the traditional narrow boats used on canals and they can sleep up to twelve people. The cost will vary according to how many people are on the holiday as the hiring fee is for the boat and not per person.
The Cheshire Ring Canal is a circular route and takes in the whole of the Macclesfield Canal and parts of the Trent, Mersey, Bridgewater, Rochdale, Ashton and Peak Forrest Canals. The vistas will change as you journey on, from the urban landscape of Manchester, through to the picturesque Peak district. A licence is needed for the section through central Manchester at a cost of about £30.00.
Boats are fitted with modern conveniences such as hot and cold water, a shower, fridge and cooker. There are televisions, DVD, radio and central heating. Most boats feature open plan dinning areas and plenty of wardrobe and storage space. The hiring companies often supply bed linen, cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery.
A Cheshire Ring Canal Boat Hire holiday will allow you to visit many different areas, with different things to see. There are a number of locks to be negotiated but training will be given before you start out on your trip. There are many pubs and restaurants along the way if you decide to have a rest from cooking.
A Cheshire Ring Canal boat hire holiday is a holiday with a difference which you can tailor to suite your own needs. You can do the whole circular route or if you only have time for a short break, just travel along a section of the canal. Of course if you don’t fancy heading along the canals then you could always try the Norfolk Broads Boat Hire that provides you with a huge choice of boats and easy sailing during the boating season.
