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.

Just returned from our first one week holiday on the canals - we went on the Trent & Mersey on the Fjord Monarch - just the 2 of us. Great instruction & help from the team at Andersens gave us all the confidence we needed - the boat was excellent with everything you could possibly need in terms of comfort. The weather was amazing for April & we both ended up with sun burn! We could just go at our own speed & tie up whenever we fancied. All canal people were friendly & helpful

did the river cruise and the boat lift, amazing feat of engineering, and a great day out, there are loads of places to just sit back and watch the boats go by..

We have had a really lovely holiday. The weather has been good. We like the Shropshire Union Canal which is easy to get on to from Middlewich. Nantwich has a super little pub "The Black Lion" 10 mins walk from mooring. Our boat - Tara Fijord - was well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The staff at Andersen Boats were friendly, helpful and efficient - a great back-up team.

We just returned from 6 nights on board the Fjord Duchess over Easter. Helped by glorious weather (note to self - take sun cream next time) we got to Llangollen and back. It was a bit of a push to do it in the time, but the boat was beautiful - seemed v smart and well-equipped (particularly the kitchen) in comparison to other companies in the area. Great service from the company with good intro to boating and safety info etc for the children.

Would definitely book with Andersen again, and would heartily recommend both their boats and the area for a canal holiday. We're just looking at dates for next year now!

Really friendly company. Absolutely lovely. Cruised passed them previous year and from their lovely comments we booked with them this year. Great boat. Clean tidy. Can not fault them. Boat had everything we needed. They also gave us a door guard for our dog. These boats have larger outside space, which is important when everyone wants to be outside together. Cost includes fuel, so no extra bill at the end. Will be booking again.
