Oakwood Marina is a family business venture. Our initial development, to provide 90 canal boat moorings, opened on 11th August 2018. Thank you to all those who came and supported us then and since and we look forward to welcoming old and new faces through 2021.
Our tea room is open for boaters and those who just like to get out into the countryside. Take your dog for a walk in the fields or just sit and watch the boats drift-by.
Our site is set in a beautiful tranquil rural location, yet close to amenities and main transport routes.
Funding of the project is supported by a grant from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) administered via the Rural Payments Agency as part of European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
Our location is well positioned, on the Trent & Mersey Canal, to maximise the choice of canal cruising routes in the North West.
Convenient base for cruising the circular routes of the Cheshire Ring and Four Counties Ring or for cruising there and back to Llangollen or Chester or maybe dropping onto the River Weaver, via the famous Anderton Boat lift, situated just across town (Northwich).
We are currently closed for Christmas and will reopen on Friday 8th January 2021.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
