A picturesque base on the Grand Union Canal

Situated on the Tring Summit of the Grand Union Canal, Cowroast Waterside & Marina offers you a secure mooring in picturesque surroundings. Cowroast is a good base as it's on a lock-free stretch of canal, it’s also a perfect spot for cruising with friends and enjoying the views. Surrounded by fields and footpaths, with the local towns a short drive or bus journey away, you might be surprised to discover that that the nearest town, Tring, is just 46-minutes from London by train. The name Cowroast comes from "Cow Rest" and it was where the Romans would rest cattle on their way to Londinium. A Roman helmet found locally is in the British Museum.
