Lady Teal is the magnificent Five Star hotel boat offering impressive crewed and fully catered breaks away on England’s canals and rivers. All cabins are fully en-suite and prices are truly all inclusive, unlike many other hotel boats this does include drinks. Cruising the quiet stunning canals through the Yorkshire dales and beyond is glorious, as owner operators we feel so lucky to be doing this. Relax, go for walks, work the locks and bridges, it’s all in a days holiday, and you decide, hotel boats are for everyone.

Lady Teal featured on The Dales on ITV-1 introduced by Adrian Edmondson. Great series and wonderful shots of the fabulous Yorkshire scenery .
Continuing our TV theme we have also appeared on UK Boating, see the video by following this link, UK Boating, some good shots of the boat.
One of the great things about drifting along the canal is the wildlife, chicks and cygnets in the spring, and watching them grow over the summer. We see and hear many Curlews and Oyster Catchers when we are in the wilds and guests have spotted Kingfishers and Deer. On hotel boats guests have the time to look around and spot lovely things and great scenery.
Last year we helped work a horse drawn boat, Elland, past a number of moored boats. It was lovely to see the horse gently making its way along the towpath, the first time for 6o years it is believed.
Life aboard Lady Teal is always varied with wildlife, fabulous views and lots of interesting things to see and do.
We meet lots of different things and people along the canal and the Elland was certainly something very different. Life is never dull along the canal and our guests frequently say they do not want to leave the lounge in case they miss seeing something.
Our guests have been spending a lot of time up on the Star Deck with its commanding views across the countryside and fresh air for all.
A holiday on Lady Teal is a traditional hotel boat holiday with the added dimensions that our luxurious new build boat provides. Lady Teal is a wide beam boat not a narrowboat, which allows us a lot more space. Lady Teal is a home from home; use your electrical items just like you can at home, sprung mattresses on all the beds, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV and DVD in your cabin. We can honestly say all our cabins are en-suite with wash hand basins, powerful hot showers whenever you want and, of course, flushing toilets. Why compromise, enjoy the traditional canal experience from the comfort of Lady Teal.
A days cruising may see you helping with swing bridges and locks or relaxing in the light and airy lounge watching the world go by. When we moor up have pre-dinner drinks on the Star Deck and enjoy the after cruising pampering and superb food that you deserve.
Some people may want to go for a short walk along the tow path and some further, please see Walking , for what we offer walkers.
We know that the experience of the canal, its wonderful architecture and structures, locks swing bridges and nature is what a holiday on the canals is all about. Lady Teal cruises the glorious Leeds and Liverpool canal in style providing a memorable, enjoyable and highly recommended experience.
Whilst you relax I (Nick ) skipper the boat and Gina prepares the outstanding food. Homemade cakes and cookies are available throughout the day with splendid lunches and sumptuous dinners. All your food and drinks are included, unless it’s that special bottle of wine or Champagne.
Many of our cruises start at one place and finish at another. If you are arriving by car you will park either at the start or end of the cruise, included is a chauffeur driven car to or from your vehicle. In line with our 5 star service the company who works with us for this uses top of the line vehicles and smartly dressed drivers.Please follow this link to their site Chauffeur Company.
In elegant surroundings passing through great scenery and eating great food Lady Teal will help you unwind and take it easy. Gina and I are thrilled with the quality and airiness of Lady Teal and it is great to see our vision become a reality.
Lady Teal is a purpose built wide beam hotel boat, drifting along the waterway. Designed to bring the amenities and quality of the classic yacht and five star hotels to the English canals Lady Teal is sheer pleasure. Our bright airy lounge is a retreat where you can watch the world waft past, read a book or doze, then for that pre-dinner drink there is the Star Deck giving you a high vantage point to look out over the countryside.
This is our enchanting home on the water; join us in our escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
