Narrowboat Holidays on the Lancaster Canal

Bluebell Narrowboat Holidays offer you canal holidays on one of the prettiest routes in Britain. Our two boats; Bluebell at 35’ long and Cornflower at 37’ long, are fully equipped with everything you need for a self-catering holiday in the English countryside. We give full operating and driving tutorials before handing over the boat—ideal for beginners and experienced cruisers alike. Green fields, quiet woodlands, stone bridge arches, and views of the amazing Morecambe Bay.  All this slips by as you gently trace the old waterway in your boat of choice.

Bluebell has been in the family since 2006 and she has been on hire for holidays since 2014. Cornflower was added to the fleet in 2020. We live only 6 miles away and are on hand for assistance when required. Our local know-how is extensive, 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.
