Welcome to The Lyneal Trust

making holidays accessible

The Lyneal Trust offers canal boat and cottage holidays in beautiful Shropshire for people with disabilities, illness or injury, or any other vulnerability and their family, friends and carers who may accompany them.

The Llangollen Canal weaves backwards and forwards across the Shropshire and Cheshire borders and into Clwyd and on its way passes through some of the finest scenery in the country. Three miles from Ellesmere and at the heart of the Meres district of North Shropshire, lies Lyneal Wharf, the ideal base for the start of your perfect holiday.

The Lyneal Trust can offer day trips, or full week holidays to accommodate most requirements for those important breaks. The two canal boats, as well as the cottages, are well suited to cater for the disabled or elderly, as well as their carers, to provide a lovely holiday or day out in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.

We can even often provide Skippers to pilot your boat and guide you on the day, but do check availability before booking if this is required, as all our people are volunteers.
