Enjoy your City Break in Manchester on a stylish widebeam canal boat which offers self catering, whole boat accommodation for up to six.

Lovely, charming, even has a wood fired stove! Perfectly equipped for self catering. Tasteful decor and very comfortable. It's in a perfect neighbourhood for seeing the sites of Manchester. A genuinely unique experience.

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your short stay on Castlerose. Please come again!

Four female friends (a very well-travelled mix of journalists, food writers, artists, teachers - and mums!) decided that Manchester was the next place for a city break. So, where to stay?

So glad you enjoyed your weekend city break in Manchester on Castlerose. Please come again!

How to get there
Airport: Manchester Airport: 14.0 km
Railway: Manchester Deansgate: 0.5 km
There are a few car parking options: for short term stays parking in the nearby Wharf Pub car park is a good option (have a drink and become a customer). For weekend stays there is an office car park on the other side of the canal, within eye sight, which is available free of charge Friday 5pm - Sunday 11pm. For all other times, there is also a security managed car park nearby at £16 / 24 hours.

Castlefield Basin is a four minute walk from Manchester Deansgate train station & tram stop.

If travelling from Manchester Piccadilly or Victoria train stations you could jump on the free Metroshuttle bus or you could get a taxi and ask to be dropped off next to Dukes 92 Bar & Restaurant at 20 Castle Street, Manchester, M3 4LZ. CASTLEROSE is moored on the “other” side of the canal so...
