The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal

We've just spent a fantastic week on the Mon and Brec Canal. We rented our narrow boat from Cambrian Cruisers at Pencelli and were not disappointed. We were greeted on arrival by the owners Jonathan and Camilla Griffiths, they made us feel very welcome, giving us time to unload the car and get organised before Jonathan came aboard and gave us loads of good advice about the boat and the canal. He gave us a detailed lesson on how to 'drive' the boat and left us feeling confident(ish)! Sian is new this year, she has one fixed double bed and another two singles or one double in the dining area.

Everything you could possibley want is on board and there are even two bathrooms for privacy should you need it. Toilets have come a long way since my last canal holidays in the 70s so I was well impressed!

The only complaint (if you can call it that) is that the singles aren't really big enough for an adult so you have to assemble the double every night, it cannot be left made up but this is a minor detail and it wouldn't put us off booking Sian again. Would we go with Cambrian Cruisers again... YOU BET WE WOULD! Oh and the Mon & Brec Canal is absolutely beautiful, with only 6 locks to negotiate!
