Aqua Narrowboats operate a luxury 5 star narrowboat hire fleet based at Mercia Marina on the Trent and Mersey canal. All our narrowboats are beautifully handcrafted to the highest quality and exceptionally well equipped. We welcome all our guests with a homemade cake so you start your holiday relaxed, refreshed and ready to go. Included in the price of your narrowboat holiday is:
Bed linen, a welcome pack (tea, coffee, sugar, milk, washing up liquid, tissue roll, cleaning cloths), gas bottle supply, free boat handling tuition and free parking for up to 2 cars at our base for the length of your hoiday. We want to make sure your holiday is an enjoyable one and therefore we provide a comprehensive handover which includes a full walkthrough of the boats features and necessary safety precautions. This is followed by practical tuition on the canal to demonstrate boat handling and the operation of locks. You can then relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of the countryside on your narrowboat holiday.

    “Brilliant!”

    We hired narrow boats for many years before owning our own boat, which regrettably we had to let go last year. The Aqua boat has - by far - the highest standard of accommodation and provision of equipment and linens we have ever experienced on a hired boat. The heating on the boat was fantastic, incredibly swift to warm all areas. We could not fault a thing. An amazing extra, certainly never before experienced, was finding a beautiful cake in the fridge on our arrival to pick up the boat!
    Aqua is such a lovely company to deal with. Nothing ever a problem or too much trouble. We have absolutely no hesitation at all in recommending this company to anyone considering hiring a narrow boat.

    Thanks so much Sandra for that lovely review! We do try our very best to make sure that the boats are comfortable whether on board for a short break, week, or in your case 4 weeks! Glad you enjoyed the trip. Look forward to welcoming you both back on board in the future. Kind regards Justin, Jane and team.
