Message from the Chairman

A message from the Chairman of the Lyneal Trust – Chris Symes

Thank you for visiting our web site, which I expect you have found by recommendation, publicity or by searching on-line for affordable accessible holiday facilities.

Lyneal Trust is a small charity, managed and operated by a group of dedicated trustees and volunteers with a common purpose – to provide canal based recreation and holidays for people with disabilities, illnesses or vulnerabilities, and their families and carers.

We are based at Lyneal in North Shropshire, at the side of the Llangollen canal. Our facilities are all shown on this web site, along with our bookings availability and prices. You will see that our prices are approximately 50% of what you will pay commercially, and this is achieved because we are a charity operated by volunteers.

Our size enables the trustees and volunteers to have a very “hands on” approach and it is important for us to meet the needs of the people the Trust provides its facilities for, and so we thrive on guest feedback.

It is difficult to provide for all disabilities, illnesses or vulnerabilities but within the limitations of a canal or cottage holiday, we will do our best.

We look forward to welcoming you at Lyneal Wharf.

Chris Symes,

Chairman, Lyneal Trust.
