Spectacular part of Wales

Considered to be Britain’s most picturesque waterway, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal (known locally as the Mon and Brec) is in rural Wales, yet close to road and rail links. Situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park and Blaenavon World Heritage Site, it's rich in heritage and wildlife, with endless things to see and do along the route.

Locks or lock-free?

Taking your boat through the six locks on the Mon & Brec canal is exciting. Everyone on board can get involved, including children. If you’d rather a lock-free holiday the Mon & Brec is a perfect choice; you can spend a week cruising a 25-mile stretch without having to operate a single lock. Take a look at our suggested itineraries for short breaks and longer holidays.

Dog-friendly

Remember this holiday is not just about you; it's also perfect for your dog! We allow up to 2 dogs per boat without a charge and provide you with a dog towel for that unexpected swimming lesson. The path alongside the canal is in excellent condition making dog walking a pleasure.
