Welcome aboard!Bluebell Narrowboat Holidays on the Lancaster Canal is a small, two boat family business providing a friendly, family based service ensuring the best possible experience on the water.

Narrowboat Holidays on the Lancaster Canal

Our 35 ft long craft Bluebell offers narrowboat holidays on one of the prettiest routes in Britain. Green fields, quiet woodlands, stone bridge arches, and even views of the sea, all slip by as Bluebell gently traces the old waterway.

Bluebell has been in the family since 2006. We live only 6 miles away and are on hand for assistance when required. We give full operating and driving tutorials before handing over Bluebell—ideal for beginners and experienced cruisers alike. Our local know-how is extensive and Kyle loves to chat, so if there’s anything you’d like to know, just ask!

Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
