Rose Narrowboats Collage


You are welcome to come to our premises to see any of our boats at almost any time but please email us first  to check if the boat you would like to see is available (it may already be out on hire) and also to make sure we are available to help (we are extremely busy on our change over days).
Alternatively you may want to visit us at one of our events.
