Electricity and water is available on each pontoon. The impressive new 5 star 2 storey facilities building includes a reception area, chandlery/shop, lounge area for boaters, showers, toilets, and laundry facilities. There is an Elsan chemical toilet disposal point, pump out facility, fuel and much more. There is full disabled access with toilet, shower facilities and lift within the facilities building.

Car parking is close and convenient to each berth with roads and footpaths surrounding the basin. Cars will enter via a secure entrance and the jetties also have gated security for peace of mind. In addition the basin will have CCTV and web cam.
Large landscaped areas surround the soft edged marina basin and these include a shallow lake of 4700 m² and a SITE OF SPECIAL SCIENTIFIC INTEREST habitat of 3500 m² which is adjacent to the canal and is replicating the canal habitat within the marina site. Bosworth Marina is committed to protecting this SSSI which is located on the waterway going towards Carlton.
The Ashby Canal is a lockless canal and travels through some of the most peaceful and tranquil countryside in the Midlands area. Travelling from Marston Jabbett through Hinckley, the canal runs close to the village of Stoke Golding, the birthplace of the Tudor Dynasty and on past the Battle of Bosworth. From Bosworth Marina boats can access four days cruising rings from Marston Junction. Click here for more information and ideas for great days out in Leicestershire and Warwickshire.
