Gemini III is a lovely narrowboat which accommodates 4 people. Recently renovated with a new kitchen, lounge and redecorated throughout. The boat has a large rear deck and a small front deck with fold down table for dining alfresco. Also on board is a wood and coal stove for heating and gas boiler for instant hot water. Moored in Higher Poynton the boat is located on the Macclesfield canal which is very picturesque with a superb pub nearby as well as rolling countryside and peaceful atmosphere. A great place to get away from it all, relax and unwind. Escape the rat race and take it slow and easy!...Gemini III is a lovely narrowboat which accommodates 4 people.

The boat will come with a full tank of diesel and water so you shouldn't need to worry about topping up constantly on your holiday although we will walk you through this and other boating basics before leaving you to enjoy your stay. Any questions please just ask.

Neither of us had operated a large boat before. Paul was very helpful and made sure we were confident before handing over the boat. We had a really lovely holiday. Gemini 3 is a very comfortable size for two people.

About the neighbourhood
Higher Poynton Moorings on located on the picturesque Macclesfield Canal in Cheshire approximately 7 miles from Manchester. For boaters, the Canal forms part of the popular Cheshire cruising ring. It is a tree-lined canal that follows the natural curves of the land, with only one lock flight on it at Bosley. There is also another lock flight at the Marple end of the canal leading into Manchester. Locally there is a Chandlery (canal shop) serving coffee, cakes and canal paraphernalia. There is also a coffee tavern and the Boars Head pub which serves good food daily.
Getting around
The best way to explore the canal is by boat, and guess what, staying with us your going to be on a boat! :) We will point out to you the local sites of interest along your journey and those just off the beaten track so you can make the very most of your stay afloat.
