We are proud to provide a unique way to explore Britain’s beautiful countryside. In addition to being based on the Llangollen Canal in North Wales, our luxury canal boats are renowned for their elegant and contemporary design. They are built to the highest standards to deliver an enjoyable and comfortable experience for all. Enjoy a new kind of holiday that allows you to be the Captain of your own ‘ship’. Wake up to a beautiful new view each morning among iconic landmarks. However you want to get way from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, relax among friends and family.
With Crest Narrowboats you can choose a holiday to suit you with flexible dates from a three-night short canal break to a 3 week+ holiday. Furthermore, as we are ideally situated on the Llangollen Canal, even with a short break you would have time to cruise over both Pontcysyllte and Chirk aqueducts. Additionally, on this short break route, you would cruise through two tunnels, Llangollen (and Ellesmere, depending on hours cruising). All of our narrowboats are fully heated so you can enjoy the waterways in early spring right through to late autumn. We offer a variety of narrowboats to hire that sleep from two up to eight people.
In short, no previous canal boating experience is necessary with a Crest Narrowboat holiday. Full instruction will be given on your arrival at the marina. Our British Marine Federation accredited teams will talk you through the canal boat – all you need to know about locks, tunnels and aqueducts plus provide info and tips on the best places to moor up and eat.
Finally, we also have a 24-hour phone line with a free call-out service for emergencies.
