Other things to note
Our love for life on the water came from our first stay on a boat. If you haven’t yet tried it and always wondered what it would be like, Moonshadow is a perfect example 💙

Location

Manchester, England, United Kingdom

We’re situated in the heart of Castlefield and a stones throw away from Deansgate, the Museum of Science and Industry, The Crystal Maze, Spinningfields, Deansgate Locks and the Hilton Hotel. There are loads of nice pubs and restaurants within a 5 minute radius and a few lovely options to sit along the water and eat/drink. The tram is a 7 minute walk from the boat and there are free buses along Deansgate. We’re situated next to the city’s historic ruins and have a couple of small beautifully kept parks surrounding us. The boat is also parked in the Castlefield bowl where they often host live music events.

We love having the option of staying in people's homes or in quirky accommodation instead of being in a generic hotel room. Our favourite pastime is checking out different places & we hope to have the opportunity to use this app in every country that we go :) As hosts we really enjoy having people on our narrowboats! Living on a boat was an awesome experience and we love letting other people get some insight in to that experience too.

During your stay
We try to meet guests where possible but during these times we believe self check in is the best option.
