Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our first visit and we had a lovely time it's about 5 minute walk from the centre of matlock and street parking available but not a lot.
    The boats are great fun and the man was very friendly. The trai wasn't running on our visit.

    Four of us had a week on the Cheshire canals from Anderton Marina, via an RCI timeshare exchange. After a friendly welcome from the marina staff and completing handover paperwork we were shown to our allocated boat - CLC’s 6-berth Spirit of Debdale. We had the obligatory tuition before setting off along the Trent & Mersey canal, then the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union and the main Shropshire Union to Christleton near Chester, where we turned around to retrace our journey back to base.

    Unfortunately on the return leg the boat developed a mechanical fault that resulted in an almost complete loss of power. We called the marina who arranged for an engineer to meet us at the next accessible bridge and we managed to keep going (albeit very slowly) to the rendezvous point. The fault was duly dealt with and we were on our way again.

    We cruised some lovely rural stretches, saw lots of bird life and enjoyed walking our dog along the towpath.

    We were a little disappointed we weren’t allocated one of CLC’s newer boats - although ours was clean and well equipped, being 25 years old it was showing its age a little.

    A final word of advice – there were four adults and a small dog on a 6-berth boat and I would say that is the limit as regards space on board.
