Do you fancy living on a houseboat for 4 months?

From November 2018 to March 2019 our boat 'Gloria' will be available for a continuous, static hire. The boat will be based at the Bridgewater marina (our base and 9 miles by road from Manchester city centre). Have you ever dreamed of living on the water for a while? Would you like to try living on a boat before you decide whether to buy your own? Or do you just fancy spending 4 months living on a houseboat. The boat is set up for comfortable winter living, it has central heating and a solid fuel stove. There is outdoor space just near the boat and a car park at the marina.

Here's what Charlotte wrote of her time aboard 'Gloria' from Nov 2017 to March 2018: 

"I lived aboard 'Gloria' over the winter months of last year (until March this year). I was ready to live on my own for the first time and I've always wondered what life would be like on a narrowboat. I've made so many good memories and this has been the best year of my life so far! It's amazing how just a few months can change your life. 
 
Hester has transformed 'Gloria' into a beautiful, contemporary home. I didn't need to add anything to make it feel homely. Everyone at the marina was so welcoming. I felt safe and I got to know the local area quite quickly. 
 
I was never too cold and it was so peaceful at night. I loved waking up to see swans outside my bedroom window. I worked in the city centre, so I had the best of both worlds. 
 
If you're looking for something different, or just time to reflect, 'Gloria' is the place to be!
 
After boat life, I ended up changing jobs and City. If it wasn't for 'Gloria', I wouldn't be where I am today :)"
 

This static hire is available for the full duration for 1 person only. This will be the fourth year running that we have successfully offered static hire throughout the winter months.

The price for this static hire is £895 pcm. If you are interested in the November 2018 to March 2019 static hire please get in touch.

The space between these boats will be the winter mooring.
