For the 6 th year running we have hired the fjord princess, why? Because the standard of the boat and customer service is 2nd to none.
All the training and information required to help you have a wonderful relaxing holiday, gently ambling through the canals, seeing all the beautiful countryside we have on our doorstep.
Route information is informative and easy to understand, plenty of villages to visit, pubs for lunches and evening meals.
A complimentary bottle of wine and flowers are waiting for you on board, we have travelled with 2 and 4 people and a dog. ( always the dog, he loves it as much as us ) and have always felt like there was plenty of room to relax and not be on top of each other.
If you have never canal boated before try a long weekend first, but I suggest you don't try anyone else, Anderson boats are definitely the best canal boating company out there...

First time out on a canal boat. Had a great week. Started off wet. Ended up nice and hot.
Good initial induction to the boat and lock use.
Boat was well equipped. Excellent hot shower on board. Did lots of cooking in the well fitted galley kitchen and stopped in quiet overnight locations. Fantastic scenery and bird life .
Thanks Andersens for being happy pleasant and making the holiday go smoothly.
Would definitely use Andersens again.

From arriving at the Andersen Boat base in Middlewich you are received by a member of the family as a friend and made welcome. The boats are kept in immaculate condition and are well appointed and are easy to handle with help given if required to negotiate the first three locks.
When cruising the boats always stand out amongst the many other hire boats.
All in all if you wish to hire a boat on the canals start with an Andersen at Middlewich.

We have been on several narrow boating holidays in the past, once before with Andersens, which is why we chose them again this time. We were introducing relatives to "narrow boating" and knew that we could rely on Andersens to supply good clean craft with everything included (all kitchen equipment, bedding, hair dryer, iron, TV etc - even a complimentary bottle of wine and a vase of roses). Andersens' location is also excellent, giving a number of different routes to choose from. We will be booking with them again.

We have just recently returned from a trip on Andersen boats and had a fantastic time, our boat was very well equipped although we did have to bring one or two extra bottles of wine a fact that was commented on jokingly by the owners, i think they fancied an invite!!, they were terrific and very helpful, and included a big wind up on myself on our return (advise... if you drop your camera in the canal do not let the staff know LOL!!)
The whole experience was one we will never forget, we done the Shropshire Union which we found easy as beginners and after a little training we were on our way.
The boat was very clean and well ordered and had everything that we needed, i would have no problem whats so ever recommending this company.
Thank you all for making our holiday so memorable..Michael and Angela.
