Swanley Bridge Marina

Swanley Bridge Marina is a brand new 315 berth marina. This pristine development is located on the beautiful Llangollen Canal just two miles from the junction of the Shropshire Union.

Our rural setting includes 10 acres of water and a seven acre wood, providing a spectacular environment to moor your boat. We are only two miles from the market town of Nantwich in Cheshire and easily accessible from the M6 motorway, just 15 minutes drive away.

We are delighted that you are interested in Swanley Bridge Marina and trust that in exploring this website you will begin to get a sense of what we have to offer here. However words and pictures can only do so much. Our hope is that you will be persuaded to visit us personally to experience first hand what sets Swanley Bridge Marina apart.

Swanley Bridge Marina Review

I drove up to Swanley Bridge marina last week (early July 2012) to pick up an engine for Calcutt Boats. I only had half an hour there so I didn’t have a chance to look around the marina properly. I was there for long enough though to take a few photo’s and have a walk around the marina basin.

The marina is just to the west of Nantwich and just a fifteen minute drive from the M6. It’s close enough to the motorway to make travelling easy but far enough away from any major road to ensure that it’s peaceful. The sense of tranquility is enhanced by the long private road past a farmyard and up to the marina.

The marina is just a few years old but its location on an established farm surrounded by mature trees – including a seven acre wood – gives the impression of moorings that have been established for much longer. The two buildings look new though; the office, shop and chandlery “The Boat House” and the ammenities block which houses the toilets, showers and washing machines.

Although there are no residential moorings specified anywhere on the marina’s web site, there were indications that some of the narrowboats there had full time residents. You would need to check with the marina for a definitive answer.

Swanley Bridge marina has a lot to offer; you can enjoy a well equipped mooring in a tranquil location right at the heart of the canal network. What more could you ask for?

We have a great team of professionals in the marine industry and an experienced & capable team of staff in our restaurant to ensure all our visitors leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Like any “beauty spot” a little sunshine brings many visitors back to our marina time and time again, although public access is restricted to the central areas so that moorers can enjoy peace and quiet on the mooring pontoons.Life aboard a boat here at Pilling’s Lock comes with some amazing benefits too.

We have full facilities on-site for all moorers to maintain their boats to a high standard, plenty of car parking and very friendly atmosphere amongst all berth holders and staff.We also realise that life aboard a narrowboat suits a small family or couple – but can be difficult when planning in visits from relatives and friends.

(*?99.00 for the whole apartment & based on 6 adults sharing).
