Taster/Training Days & Overnight Stays

Come and stay the night (self catering) on our private moorings just below the lock at Llangynidr in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales - no cruising and don't forget to bring your breakfast! From £95 for 2 people.

Fancy a try at navigating a narrow boat and operating the locks? Try a one day cruise with lock and boat handling instruction included, or combine the two with an overnight stay, training and cruising.

Our traditional narrow boats are designed for either short breaks or weekly hire and as such they do not have rows of seating as trip boats do, but living accommodation instead - providing a completely different experience from that of a trip boat or a day boat.

Please note - We are unable to confirm availability until 4 days prior to the hire due to the boats normal short break/weekly hire bookings.
