Canal boat and cottage holidays for the disabled



Lyneal Trust offers canal boat and cottage holidays and canal day trips 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 canal boat and cottage holidays.

Lyneal Trust can offer day trips, or full week holidays to accommodate most requirements for those important breaks. Our canal boats, as well as the cottages, are well suited to cater for people with disabilities, illness or injury, or any other vulnerability and their family, friends and carers who may accompany them, to provide a lovely holiday or day out in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.


Santa Cruises are back!

Lyneal Trust is pleased to announce The Shropshire Lady will be available for Santa Cruises on Saturday 11, Sunday 12, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 December 2021.

Santa Cruises include a trip along the canal, approximately 45 minutes, during which there will be music and refreshments.

When you return to the Wharf cottage both adults and children will meet Santa in his Winter Wonderland.

Tickets: £10 payable at the time of booking. Children under the age of 1 year go free.

The Lady can accommodate up to a maximum of 12 passengers per trip

Owing to the limited capacity of the Lady we would ask you keep the number of adults to a minimum without compromising supervision.

A maximum of 50% of the party can be adults.  Children must be fully supervised at all times.
