Canal Boat Holidays with Andersen Boats
Family Boating Holidays with Andersen Boats
Our base in Middlewich allows a wide range of routes for your family's holiday, including your pets.. On a canal holiday on one of our boats you can experience adventure, excitement, relaxation, inspiration and so on.... this is a truly amazing style of holiday on which you can wake up somewhere new each day, see new things everyday and importantly you don't have to budget hundreds of pounds extra... it's all part of what you will have paid for!
You may travel through scenic countryside and past quaint villages on the Llangollen Canal - a UNESCO World Heritage Site with highlights including the 126ft high Pontcysyllte Aqueduct,known as the "stream in the sky" spanning the Dee Valley. The Llangollen Canal is one of the most popular UK canal holiday destinations, with a totally rural backdrop, brought to life by the magical and spectacular scenery, amazing aqueducts and of course the holiday town of Llangollen.
......other ideas are the Caldon Canal as one of the jewels of the waterways, combined with cruising through the history of the Potteries....... the Roman city of Chester is a wonderful place to visit on the way to the fascinating Canal & River Trust Boat Museum at Ellesmere Port..... the Anderton Boat Lift on the nearby Trent & Mersey Canal is perfect for a family adventure holiday, and children love it.
Lots of Locks
A canal boating holiday is great for active family breaks, navigating locks and steering a canal boat is all part of the experience. You'll receive full lock instruction on arrival and buoyancy aids will always be provided for adults and children.
Theme Parks & Amusements
Why not plan a trip to Drayton Manor Theme Park just south of Stafford is within easy reach of the Trent and Mersey Canal.... or just east of Stoke on Trent cruising on the Caldon Canal will take you to Froghall, this being just a short taxi ride away from Alton Towers.
If you're planning to spend a day out and about off your boat, please make sure you factor this into your plans when working out the amount of cruising hours required to complete your holiday route.
