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!

About the neighbourhood

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.
