Owner description: Canal boating is for anyone who just want to do something completely different from the everyday world. Andersen Boats is a family run business in Middlewich for 40 years. Canal boating with the best starting point for a perfect canal holiday across England & Wales. We offer day boat hire and longer breaks, so you can take a short or a long tour of our beautiful canals. For our day hire you can spend the day cruising the Canals around Middlewich Cheshire, in one of our superb Canal Boats. With easy to operate controls and expert handover, our canal boats are lots of fun for adults and children alike. So celebrating a birthday? Special event? or just having a fun day out, this inexpensive treat is a great way to take in the sights and sounds of our countryside. Relax with family and friends. Give us a call.

Another great time on Andersen Boats.
Went with our neighbours, 4 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs.
Fyord Empress 6 berth was perfect, well equiped and clean.
Managed to get through Harecastle tunnel and back in the 3 night tour.
Kids really enjoyed the 70 locks we went through.
would certainly use again.

As the beginners amongst our crew we were apprehensive about what we would experience on our first trip but we quickly got into the swing of things, with help from our skipper, on our trip round the Cheshire Ring.
We were aboard the Nord Fjord from Andersons Boat Yard and were very comfortable with plenty of storage. The staff at Andersons were very attentive and I feel that they would have made quite sure we knew what we were doing if we hadn't been going with experienced boaters.
As a keen cook I was impressed with how well the kitchen was equipped with large enough saucepans, decent knives and a reliable oven. I even managed to make Hot Cross buns on Good Friday!

We had a great week cruising round the Cheshire Ring in the Fjord Viscount and the Bergen Fjord. The Andersen staff were friendly, helpful and entirely unflustered when we rang them during the week with various crises. Would highly recommend!

We have just returned from a weekend barging on the Shropshire Union Canal. We rented our four berth boat from Andersen Boats. From start to finish the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. We were new to barging and they explained everything in detail. The standard of the barge was first class - absolutely everything you could need for a relaxing, peaceful break. We will definitely be trying it again - now we think we experts!!
