Star Narrowboat Holidays, is an independent, narrowboat hire company owned and managed by Hester Cox, we started at the Bridgewater Marina (also known as Boothstown Basin) and we recently moved to Anderton Marina, Uplands Road, Anderton, Northwich, Cheshire, CW9 6AJ on the Trent and Mersey canal. We always aim to provide superb quality canal boat hire in the Northwest of England, UK and we are proud to offer unique boat hire and a memorable experience to all who stay aboard.
We have been enjoying great success since we started in June 2012, we've welcomed people (beginners and experienced hirers) from many different places such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Singapore, China, Egypt, Spain, France, the Netherlands, South Africa, Israel and of course all over the UK. We started with Gloria and in 2014 we brought Queenie to the water. In October 2016 we gained Quality Accredited Boatyard (QAB) status. Our boat Gloria had it's last hire in August 2020 and we are currently building a new boat, named Woodstock, to replace Gloria. Our new boat will be ready for July 2021.
Open all year round and we keep the same hire prices all year too. We offer narrowboat holiday hire - where you take the boat out on the canal and static hire at our peaceful base. We also offer Experience Days, Deluxe Experience Days, Gift Vouchers and Static Hire.
We hope you like our website, the gallery pictures will give you a good idea of our boats - thanks to Laura Hutchinson who took most of the interior boat photos.
You are welcome to come and visit us and look over Queenie and Woodstock before you make any decisions about a hire.
We look forward to meeting you.
