Great Haywood

If you thrive on choice, this is the narrowboat hire base for your canal boat holiday. Great Haywood is situated at a crossroads of the Staffordshire & Worcestershire canal and Trent & Mersey canal, in an area rich in history and heritage, so your first decision will be which way to go, depending on your narrowboat cruising criteria.

Head north on the Trent and Mersey through The Potteries towards Stoke on Trent where you can join the idyllic Caldon Canal, taking you along the romantic Churnet Valley to pretty Froghall, a stone’s throw from Alton Towers.

Cruise along the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal and you reach the beautiful Tixall Wide in just 15 minutes where the canal opens up into a lake teeming with wildlife. Further along the canal you’ll reach Victorian Wightwick Manor with its William Morris interiors and colourful garden and Kinver Edge with its unique rock-carved houses.

Anglo Welsh. So much more than narrowboats

...but don't just take our word for it
