There are some fantastic berths available here at Pilling’s Lock and we have got some great deals available to help you get any easy & stress free start to your boating experience. We have lots of helpful literature and advice on hand at the marina office so why not drop in and have a chat!

The local waterways are a beautiful jewel in the crown of rural Leicestershire. We believe that our facilties have so far encouraged many new people to take up boating and enjoy all the area offers in a very secure environment with lots of friendly faces on hand to help and advise. 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 service fuel and Pump-Outs from a mobile barge – meaning you don’t always have to move your boat & we can do this when you’re not there. 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. This is why we chose to relaunch our luxurious 2 bedroom apartment as a self-catering holiday let which can accommodate up to 6 adults and one baby for as little as ?16.50 per adult* per night! (*?99.00 for the whole apartment & based on 6 adults sharing). Booking is so easy with the apartment listed on Laterooms.com or you can call the office for more details on 01509 620990 & many Berth Holders have already used this great facility for Birthday Weekends, Christmas Reunions and Anniversary celebrations.
