Swapping out a classic hotel for the unique experience that's on offer from Manchester Houseboats means forging a trip you're bound to remember. Instead of busy buildings and predictable guestrooms, you'll be able to look forward to an intriguing place to bed down that can be found bobbing on local waters. You'll drift off to the sound of the rhythmic waves and wake to the gurgle of a current on the bow. It promises to be at once peaceful and adventurous, soothing and surreal.
Most houseboat holidays mean trading the sprawling suites of classic hotels for somewhere that's a little smaller. If you don't mind going compact, the pluses are plentiful. For starters, water-based accommodations often don't even need to stay put. Just by untying the sails and revving up the engines, you can be on your way – a total change of scenery all before digging into breakfast. And there's even more to like about the added mobility, with some houseboats touting wildlife-spotting excursions or cultural encounters along heritage-rich waterways as part of the package.
You might also find a dash of luxury awaits on Manchester Houseboats. That's because lots of these water-based pads come steeped in heritage and history. There are vessels with lounges where sumptuous Victorian interiors meet dangling chandeliers – all on a river or a dockside. There are others that have modern luxuries, such as 40-footer yachts that have whitewashed decks and uber-cool seating areas open to the sun. All you need to do is work out when you intend to visit and ebookers will reveal if any of those sorts of stays are on offer in Manchester.
If you're eager to stray from the beaten path and see a totally different side to Manchester than most other visitors, Manchester Houseboats could be the perfect choice. Often hidden away down the creeks or docksides, clutching the rivers or moored up on nearby canals, a houseboat promises to get you exploring a part of the town you might not have considered before. And that's not even mentioning the whole range of more offbeat activities that comes with a stay on the water. Whether it's wild swimming or fly-fishing, you'll enjoy a break from the usual itinerary of box-checking sightseeing and museum-hopping.
