If you're in need of a slower pace to life and wish to escape the rush and tumble of the city then you've come to the right place. Holidaying with a Canalboat sets a more leisurely tempo to your time away and at Blackwater Meadow Marina you're offered a choice between 4 and 6-berth canal boats. Located in Shropshire, Blackwater Marina provides a rural route along the Llangollen Canal where delightful pubs and market towns can be visited.
The first stop for many on this route is the 18th Century Market town of Ellesmere regarded as the “mini lake district” and is a peaceful first nights stop on the canal. Built in 1805, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a major attraction along this route and spans 1000 feet over the Dee Valley and gives its visitors the feeling of being suspended in mid-air. Llangollen is a worthwhile stopover too and every July it hosts the International Musical Eisteddfod, a gala of music and dance to be admired.
The ABC Class 4 and 6-berth canalboats come well-equipped for your holiday on the waters of Shropshire. Fitted with a television and DVD player for cosy evenings moored up there is also a CD player if a little music takes your fancy whilst gliding along the canal. If you want a quick bite to eat and the next pub is a little wait away then a microwave is provided for a little meal.
