Castle Narrowboats - Sharon Mills

We are a family run business offering a warm and personal service. Choose from our superb fleet of canal boats, which are perfect for cruising the stunning Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Whether you are looking for an involving family holiday or a quiet break with friends try a short break or longer aboard your very own floating castle.


Located in Gilwern, ten minutes from Abergavenny, our base is ideally situated mid-way along the canal, enabling you to cruise in either direction. Our hire base and gift shop is our home and our private wharf allows for easy loading, unloading & car parking

Named after some of Wales’ most spectacular castles, our holiday hire narrowboats offer a choice of sizes, number of berths and even propulsion. Castle Narrowboats have operated both diesel narrowboats and electric narrowboats for over 20 years. We offer the only 100% electric narrowboats for hire within the UK.

As well as our Narrowboats we also offer T6 VW Campervan hire for holidays, weddings, festivals or to simply explore the UK. Set off from our hire base amongst the beautiful Brecon Beacons and see where the road takes you.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
