Our new wide-beam canal boat offers stylish self catering accommodation for families and groups of up to 6 people. This dutch barge offers 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, a large lounge with sofa bed and fully equipped kitchen. All in a great location.
As an optional extra we offer weekend cruises to the birthplace of the English Canals, Worsley, passing over the Manchester Ship Canal on the famous Barton Swing Bridge and we also cruise to Old Trafford Stadium on Man Utd weekend match-days.
We can accommodate up to six people in comfort: There are two stylish bedrooms, a master double with en-suite bathroom and a second bedroom which can be configured either as two singles or a super-king double. There is also a sofa bed in the lounge which converts into a very comfortable double bed.
The bedrooms are individually furnished taking inspiration from our inland waterways & hedgerows . The beds are made up in luxury linen with duvets and the bathrooms have full size showers with unlimited hot water, soft white towels and flush toilets!
The open plan Lounge – Dining – Kitchen area draws inspiration from the traditions of canal living and includes log fire and chimney, armchairs in patchwork colours and decorative art pieces! This homely space can be used in a multitude of ways: Relax around the log fire, enjoy dinner for upto six around the dining table or at the end of the day turn the room into a sumptuous double bedroom.
The fully fitted galley kitchen includes gas cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, wine cooler and dish washer. A modern diesel fired central heating system ensures the boat is always toasty warm when needed.
CASTLEROSE is uniquely designed with front and rear outside seating areas; The stern is set-up with a superb alfresco dining & cocktail area for entertaining – and the bow area is accessed through the main bedroom allowing you to enjoy another lovely outside space.

On arrival we will be there to greet you and check you in. We will spend a short time with you explaining the boat's operation and answering any queries you may have. Then we will leave you to enjoy a complementary afternoon tea!
And then we will return at Checkout which will include inspecting the boat and handing back the keys.
We only live fifteen minutes away so are available on call to help with anything that pops up.
For Winter Bookings: Please consider the impact that cold weather can have on the boat. Whilst we have a central heating system which is programmed to turn on automatically in the morning & evening and a log burner, the boat will turn cold if you haven't the opportunity to keep the boat warm!
In the interests of all of our customers we have decided not to allow pets on-board. Sorry! Also we are a non-smoking boat.
Whilst on board please treat Castlerose as if she was your own and leave the boat in the same condition that you find her. Thank You!
We are husband & wife couple Steve & Stephanie who are into our second year on AirBnB - doesn't time fly - from what feels like just yesterday when we launched our unique accommodation business in central Manchester. Castlerose offers a great experience and we hope to welcome you on-board one day. Please let us know if you have any questions.
