Canal Boat Hire on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal

Road House Narrowboats is a small family run business and the oldest company offering canal boat hire on the Mon and Brec canal. With five narrow boats specially designed for hassle-free cruising on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, we can assure you of a relaxing and enjoyable canal boat holiday in Wales. You’ll receive our initial induction and closest attention at all times along with any support you may require along the way, particularly if canal boating is new to you. We have ourselves been canal enthusiasts for many years and are very happy to talk to you about our narrowboat hire on the Mon & Brec canal if you care to call.

Who can Narrowboat:
Narrowboating with us located within the Brecon Beacons National Park is an ideal self-catering holiday experience for anyone interested in wildlife, the natural surroundings and our local heritage. Suitable for anyone active: tourists and locals alike, family or friendship groups of all ages and generations with up to five people per boat. Narrow boating can even be a valuable corporate or organisation team building exercise with one or more of our boats.

Magical and very tranquil

This has been a wonderful holiday, the scenery quite magical and very tranquil.

We had two nice meals out at the Coach and Horses and Royal Oak. A walk into Crickhowell was worth the climbs.

There's never enough time to see everything in one week.

We were very impressed with your boat and the thought that went into everything we could possibly need, so we thank you Nigel & Sally for all the wonderful information you sent us and it on your boat too.
