Why choose Us? 

Situated in the heart of England, Canal Cruising Co Ltd is the ideal starting point for a different type of Family Boating Holiday. Family boating in the slow lane, an adventure, seeing England from a different view point. From Stone you have several choices of routes, for an energetic week you can do the Four Counties Ring visiting Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and the Midlands. Or an easier week the Cauldon which offers lift bridges, tunnels, a river, steam engines and the churnet valley.  10 days the Cheshire Ring Manchester  and the Anderton Boat lift.  2 weeks the  Llangollen, Wales and the famous Aquaduct, naming but a few, each offering slightly different aspects of boating. Not forgetting those 3 or 4 day short-breaks to re charge the batteries, traveling south to Great Haywood and Shugborough Hall or North and the Potteries.  Equally why not try a  Taster, we offer Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays a max of 8 people.  Ideal birthday/anniversary gift.  Take a trip down as far as Sandon, the Dog and Dublet or Burston, the Greyhound for a bite to eat. Why not  journey down to Sandon then come back up to the new Aston Marina.  Any of these options offer glimpses of our beautiful English countryside.  All training is done in house when you arrive and  its FREE.  If your still unsure why not give us a call.
