An absolutely fantastic long weekend aboard Sweet Chestnut! Perhaps not the poshest of hire boats on the canal but absolutely perfect for the price and exactly what we needed! we were 2 couples enjoying the Llangollan canal, the boat was very well equipped with everything we needed! Greg and Sue (the owners) are the loveliest couple and made our holiday so special to celebrate my 30th Birthday going above and beyond so we could get the best of the canal in such a short time. The only complaint I have was the weather but this can't be helped by anyone and meant we got chance to use the wood burner which made the living area really cosy!
We will definately be returning to this beautiful area and would not think of going anywhere but Middlewich Narrowboats to hire a boat! It really was a great introduction to narrow boating and we have definately got the bug!
Thanks again Greg and Sue and everyone involved with Middlewich Narrowboats!

We booked Elm for three days over the bank holiday weekend, there were 12 friends altogether so a bit of a squeeze but that was part of the fun! As soon as we arrived we received a warm welcome by the owners and another man who worked on the narrowboats who showed us the ropes. They were very informative with tips on the best route to travel with the most pubs! We were taken down the canal so that he could show us how to operate the locks which was really helpful. Everything worked on the boat except the TV but we weren't bothered about that. The showers were hot and the beds were surprisingly comfy and duvets really warm. The boat and its facilities were all clean. All in all we had a brilliant weekend and i would definitely recommend a holiday with this company.

We had a lovely April week on Middletown Navigator. Incredibly luxurious and very much enjoyed having two bathrooms for the 4 of us. The weather was a bit changeable but we were always very comfortable. We were novice boaters but the staff looked after us really well, even when we made mistakes. Would thoroughly recommend Middlewich Narrowboats.

We have just got back from an absolutely fabulous day out on the Oak from middlewich narrow boats the owners were fantastic (so dont look at old reviews as these are new owners) they were really helpful and went to special measures to accommodate our family of 7. The boat was clean and well equipped and new inside,it had everything we needed. It was one of the best days out we have had in Cheshire for a long time and well worth every penny! The kids had a great experience turning the locks and learning from all the other helpful, friendly boaters and we enjoyed a lovely meal at The Galley cafe On the way back. So our advise is...if you want a fabulous and different day out in Cheshire with or (without kids :) ) ...go hire a posh narrowboat
