Canal boat holiday for Great British Bake Off fans

Calling all fans of The Great British Bake Off. Do you love food? Like cooking? Enjoy using local, artisan produce? This holiday is just for you.

Our latest luxury canal boat, aptly-named Grouse, is designed for foodies. With an amazing kitchen, formal dining area and smart lounge for after-dinner drinks, cooking and eating afloat have never been so pleasurable. The high-spec kitchen has everything for you to create a spectacular meal or spend a chilled-out holiday doing a spot of home baking. We can even recommend local chefs to come onboard and cook for you, making a special holiday even more memorable.


Due to be launched on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal in the stunning Brecon Beacons in May 2016, Grouse sleeps four in two double bedrooms. Enjoy breakfast in the fresh air and relax in the traditional steamer chairs on the fabulously spacious front deck.

You could combine your break with a visit to Abergavenny Food Festival (September) or Brecon Food Festival (October) or simply pick up delicious ingredients from the many markets and independent shops along the canal route.

When you fancy a trip out, there's no shortage of excellent eateries nearby, including a Michelin-starred restaurant, amazing pubs and one of the UK's top afternoon tea venues.  

We’re busy building Grouse right now so check this blog regularly to see how things are progressing. In the meantime, browse the rest of our 5-star fleet.
