With a slide show at the top and a video below, pause, put the kettle on, grab a drink and stay a while.
Showing all our glory
More Than a Mooring
Fairies Hill and Altofts Cut pride themselves on being more than a mooring. As Boaters we have strived to make this a place that we would want to visit. With friendly, helpful staff ready to give advice or assistance if you require it, to having a variety of non boating facilities that allow you to relax if you don't want to cruise. No one is forced into doing anything they don't want to. A visit to your boat is your time, to cruise, sit and chill, carry out minor repairs/maintenance or join in an impromptu gathering of like minded souls in a party on the communal area. What you do is up to you but with friendly staff and other boaters it is easy to make new friends and join in if you feel like it
Watch the slides, see the video
Call us and arrange a visit to see us in person about moving your boat
Not So Easy Relaxation
Not had a hard days work but still want to visit without taking out the boat. No problem, we cater for that too.
Walk the nature trails, explore the wild life in the back field
Walk the dog around the island
Walk the towpaths to Altofts or even Stanley for a meal
Take a walk or bus ride into town
Should you wish to visit your boat, but having had a hard days work not wishing to be energetic, then why not just dangle a worm, sweet corn or anything else you fancy on the end of a rod (we do check for rod licences) or one of the following
Have a picnic/BBQ in the communal area
Watch the boats go by from the viewing platform with a glass of wine/beer
Chill outside or inside your own boat
Relax with others in the Club House
Watch the wildlife direct from your boat
Having tarried a while watching the slide show and the video, time has passed by and you didn't realise how long you have been watching. That's the magic of Fairies Hill casting its spell over you. Now is the time to cut the ties give us a call, check for a space and arrange to move your boat.
The current video shows both sites at winter rest. As spring arrives a new video will show the site beginning to bloom for the new season throwing off the web of winter cold, some of our hardier souls still come down and cruise throughout the winter
