Built high on the side of the Brecon Beacons, few other canals in the UK can rival the Monmouthshire & Brecon for beautiful surroundings.

Just about the right length for a weeks leisurely cruising with half-a-dozen locks, an aqueduct (albeit a small one), a short tunnel, plenty of canal-side pubs and lots of other points of interest, the Mon & Brec is an ideal introduction to the delights of a canal holiday.

If only it wasn╩╝t quite so shallow.
