We hired a 67ft Narrowboat for week (Tuesday to Tuesday). We had a 6 berth Bond Class boat called Askrigg for the four of us as we wanted a bit of extra space. The boat comes with everything you need for your trip and was...More
We did this last year and headed towards Llangollen, this time we headed for Chirk which was supposed to be a prettier route. I would say that it isn't as pretty but it's a wider stretch of canal so far less stressful so I would...More
9 of us hired the boat. Check in was really easy, helpful staff, free car park on site as well.
All controls on the boat were explained well and we set off. The weather was awful but so what...we made tea and coffees on board...More

We hired a day boat to try it out before committing ourselves to a full holiday on a narrowboat & cannot fault the experience we had with Anglo Welsh at Trevor. As first timers we were very nervous, especially faced with going over that 'stream...More

Having just done 3 nights on Osney from Trevor - Elsmere return, we have had a fab time.
The handover and instruction was thorough and the boat was well equipped.
The trips over two aquaducts & through two tunnels gave us a great taster.

Hi there. I think you sent me a message last year which I answered on a similar point. I only did a short day trip if you remember so can't really comment on long journeys over a few days. Martin seems to have given you a good answer and seems experienced on the canal.
I can agree with him on visiting Chirk Castle and also the Mere in Ellesmere. I hope you get your trip organised and have a wonderful time. Remember the British summertime weather - not like Malta.
