Situated in the heart of England, our base is the ideal starting point for a different type of holiday adventure, canal boating in the slow-lane, visiting England from a new viewpoint.
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. In 10 days the Cheshire Ring Manchester and the Anderton Boat lift. In 2 weeks Llangollen, Wales and the famous Aquaduct, naming but a few, each offering slightly different aspects of boating. Not forgetting those 3 or 4 day shortbreaks to re charge the batteries, traveling south to Great Haywood and shugborough Hall or North and the Potteries.
