Cheshire Cat Training

Welcome to Cheshire Cat Training

We are a small, friendly, training establishment, based at Overwater Marina, near Audlem in Cheshire. We offer one or two day narrowboat training courses on our boat. Learn at your own pace in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, no pressure to pass or fail a certificate.

Our patient lady instructor has twenty years and hundreds of cruising miles of narrowboating experience to pass on to our students.

Cheshire Cat Narrrowboat Holidays

For narrowboat holidays we have a small fleet of comfortable 2-8 berth boats to choose from.

All our boats have central heating, flush toilets, and hot and cold running water. The fully-equipped galleys have hob, grill, oven, and fridge, together with ample crockery, cutlery and kitchenware.

We want you to enjoy every moment of your narrowboat holiday, so we provide expert tuition to set you on your way with confidence, including a practical demonstration of working through locks. We can suggest a choice of suitable routes, and tell you all about the amazing scenery, cosy pubs and historic architecture you are likely to see along the way. Throughout your holiday, free friendly advice is always just a phone call away.
