About us

Paul and Sam live together in South Manchester, near the boats which are located in Higher Poynton along the Macclesfield Canal, with our little girl Orlagh quickly approaching 3 years old. We would be delighted to welcome you to stay on board our one of our comfortable homely boats.

Paul has over 10 years experience within a customer service orientated field and has previous worked in the travel accommodation sector.  Sam brings a key attention to detail and is excellent at managing Paul!  Orlagh is our chief duck spotter – she loves boating and feeding the birds!

We bought the boat first boat, Gemini III, in 2016 and spent 9 months getting her up to scratch until she entered service and took her first guests in 2017.

Since then we have also mid 2018 brought into service Rakiraki which is an ex-hotel boat. A very modern narrowboat which comfortably accommodates ten people guests, has two bathrooms and a large lounge and kitchen.

At the end of 2018 and new for the 2019 season we have welcomed three additional boats to the Floating Holidays fleet.  Featuring king size beds, gas central heating, large bathrooms and a truly unique layout designed to be pure luxury afloat the new boats offer 2 to 6 berth accommodation and are just fabulous. Casanova is a cozy boat that can sleep 2 people, Lady Sophia can comfortably take 4 guests and Columbina features two large king size beds as well as a double dinnette and can welcome 6 crew.

Whatever your size of party your looking to go on a canal boating holiday with we are sure to have something to suit.
