A buyer’s agent service is launching soon to help you to find and secure your ideal home beside the canal or in a canalside village. Read the blog post to find out more!

I’ve chosen Yellow Brick Mortgages as my mortgage provider, based on their unrivalled customer service, and their outstanding experience with waterside properties.

I’ve chosen online auctioneers BidX1 as my auction partners. Sellers benefit from my services and marketing expertise, combined with BidX1’s prowess and digital technology.

I work with Gazeal to offer my buyers and sellers a secure, Law Society approved, reservation system which gives both parties security and confidence in their transaction.

About Canalside Homes

Canalside Homes is a bespoke residential sales agency for canalside properties across the canal network of England and Wales. Owner Sheridan Parsons launched Canalside Homes in 2021, having spent the previous three years running her website as a passionate hobby. As a canal aficionado who has owned three narrowboats over the years, she is uniquely placed to assist buyers looking for that perfect home, perhaps a lock keeper’s cottage, or a house with a mooring. She brings her unique brand of enthusiasm and knowledge to every property she sells, with the added benefit of local and family history research to inspire potential buyers. She offers a comprehensive service for sellers, including everything you would expect from a good high street agent and more.

Some Happy Clients

Can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. We have never experienced an agent like you! Your kind patience and sense of humour makes a stressful situation easy to handle – what a star!

Nicole S

You started your Facebook page at just the right time for me. Although I still love living on my boat, I felt the need to prepare for the time when I can no longer continuously cruise and I thought that a property with a mooring might be the answer. So I devoured every post that you made and found exactly the right place for me, I can’t thank you enough.


Before finding your site, Sheridan, I would waste so much time on the web in the hope of finding a property on or near a canal. Having a dedicated site specifically for canalside / river properties is perfect and a go-to place for anyone looking for their dream canalside property! 

Maxine Lancaster

Sheridan has provided loads of advice during my house search and clearly not only really knows the specific waterside market, but is also passionate about it. I was so happy when I stumbled upon her company and particularly found how knowledgable and helpful she is.


Sheridan makes the buying experience stress free whilst still retaining a professional efficient approach. Her enthusiasm, amazing energy and quick responses to queries have given us total confidence in our transaction.

Nicole and Nick

I really appreciate the effort you go to collating canalside properties. I love looking at them, and who knows maybe one day I’ll move to one of them. 

June McDickens

Just wanted to say thank you. You posted a property I frequently moor close to and never even noticed. Just had an offer accepted!

Meet Sheridan

Sheridan has loved canals ever since she went on a boat trip on the Regent’s Canal when she was 11 years old. She rented a hire boat on the Oxford Canal when she was 18, followed by a memorable student holiday on the Canal du Midi. It was the beginning of a long love affair with canals, during which she has owned three narrowboats. She started her canalside property website as a passionate hobby in 2018, and three years later she launched her independent canalside homes estate agency.
