Our narrowboats have just been assessed for the coming year by Visit England and I'm very happy to announce that they have all received a 5 Star award again and that "Linden" has received hers for the first time.
We are the only narrowboat hire company on the Lancaster Canal to have received this significant and respected award. We are justly proud of our boats and our hirers agree, as we are consistently getting top marks and great feedback on our customer survey forms.

Linden is on course to be here ready for her first hire on the 26th May. She's currently being painted and is looking wonderful !! The sun will have to shine when she finally takes to the water - really looking forward to her joining Willow & Mulberry.

Really, really thrilled to be able to announce that at the beginning of May we will be adding a third narrowboat to the Crabtree Narrowboat fleet. "Linden" is the same size and layout as "Willow" (44 foot) and is of course of the same high standard as the other two boats. The price will be the same as Willow - but this boat will hire from Sunday to Sunday (Sunday to Wednesday and Wednesday to Sunday for short breaks).
A page with more details will be up shortly, but if you want further details then please just contact us.
Roll on summer . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Well the end of our first season and a big thank you to everyone who’s booked with us and enjoyed the beautiful Lancaster Canal.
We’re now looking forward to next year with the hope that the sun will shine a little more than it did this year – the only real downside to a wonderful first year.
There are already plans afoot to improve the boats – we’ve listened to your comments and even though they are 5 star there’s always room for improvement !! Check back for details shortly – in the meantime Happy Christmas !!

Summer seems to have finally arrived and there are still a couple of hire periods available for August. After the soaking we've had it will be nice to see the Lancaster Canal bathed in sunshine.
Obviously there are only a limited number of hire periods available so contact us for details ASAP and enjoy a tranquil break on one of the most beautiful canals the UK has to offer on the only 5 star narrowboats on the Lancaster Canal.

Just had a quick break on the Lancaster Canal as one of the boats was available. The weather was absolutely perfect and the canal looked superb - can't believe how lucky we are to have such wonderful countryside on our doorstep.

Really thrilled to announce that on Friday 4th May 2012 Crabtree Narrowboat Hire was assessed by Quality In Tourism: the assessment service for Visit England and both of our narrowboats, Willow and Mulberry, were awarded the highest possible rating achievable – 5 stars.
This is a tremendous achievement and one we are truly proud of. We are the only narrowboat hire company on the Lancaster Canal that has this 5 star award from Visit England – the national organisation for tourism in England.

Wow – How nice is this weather ?? The Lancaster Canal looks really appealing at the moment. Not too many boats about and you’re in serious danger of getting a really good sun tan !!
The first hirers of the season have given some great feedback after their holidays and have had a lovely time – it seems that the Lancaster Canal takes some beating.
There is still some availability for April with Crabtree Narrowboats. “Willow” and “Mulberry” are there waiting for someone - so get in touch for a great holiday or short break !!

Well, the first season for Crabtree Narrowboat Hire has begun. We’ve already had some bookings and a number of enquires including day boat hire which we are not planning at the moment but is something we will perhaps look at for later in the season.
We’ll be updating on a regular basis from now on as the season (and the nice weather) approaches with news and, we hope, some interesting additional offers ………. . Visit us again soon.
