Shropshire Lass

The Shropshire Lass

The Shropshire Lass is a purpose designed 70-foot residential canal boat with berths for eight people and finished to a high standard. The boat includes a hydraulic lift and hydraulic steering which enables wheelchair users and others to take part in the running of the boat. There is access to all parts of the boat for wheelchairs and the lavatory and shower are designed for wheelchair users.

The Shropshire Lass may be hired with the Wharf Cottage so that some of your party may take a few days on the canal. The Shropshire Lass is also available to other groups during the periods it is not required by hirers of the cottages.

Please note that charges do not include pillows, sleeping bags, blankets or linen.
