How Do You Know Where To Go on the Canal?
A Lancaster Canal Guide is on the boat, this shows where you are for navigation and where you can moor up etc. It also gives details of the area and where you can find shops, bars and places of interest.
What you need to bring
Storage space aboard a narrow boat is limited. We recommend you bring a sensible selection of informal clothing. Non-slip shoes or deck shoes are essential for your safety when decks become wet and slippery. As you well know, the English weather is not the most predictable, therefore we recommend that you bring warm clothes, cool clothes and waterproofs to ensure a comfortable cruise.
Diesel and Gas
All included in the price of your holiday.
Bedding, towels and cooking utensils
Freshly laundered bedding and towels are provided on your arrival and each boat is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery.
Your pets are welcome to come on holiday with you. Just let us know at time of booking. But please help us to look after our boat by keeping your pets off the bedding and upholstery and keep on top of the dog hairs and paw marks.
We have a parking area at our base. We do not charge but owners leave their vehicles at their own risk. You will have the ability to use your vehicle at any time, when you return to the mooring. (keys provided to unlock the gate)
We will be happy to provide Buoyancy Aids at your request.
The Bond Payment
We request a bond of £150 (cash) once our guests are happy with their boat and its facilities on departure. This is returned on the last morning of your break when we have checked that there is no excessive damages or breakages have occurred and the boat is returned in the condition it was collected, and it returns to the mooring on time.
Please let us know if you are held up and will be late collecting the boat.
