“Highly professional people, boats are beautiful and immaculate and extremely well equipped”
Reviewed 13 January 2017 for a stay in October 2016

The Brecon Monmouth canal is located in a beautiful part of Wales. We cruised for a week and had a wonderful relaxing time. We were in the part with no locks, where the canal meanders around the border of Beacon National Park with its beautiful forest trees and shrubbery and were treated to beautiful views of the park forest and wildlife on one side, and looked down on green valleys, grazing land and quaint villages on the other. We enjoyed Talking with the locals, who were very welcoming, and we had some great Country Pub meals.

The Beacon Park Boats management and staff were outstanding in their hospitality, and thorough attention to detail. They coached us in boat handling and canal etiquette, and especially gave us the benefit of their experience in negotiating the many narrow stone bridges across the canal. Beacon Park Boats' web site is very informative, with photographs of the boats inside and out, plus detailed floor plans. There are photos and maps of places of interest along the route, to help boaters plan their trip in advance. The boats are immaculate, well maintained and luxuriously equipped. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Beacon Park Boats and the location for a great holiday.

“Great weekend break”
Reviewed 11 January 2017 for a stay in November 2016

Stayed in static barge 'Owl' for a winter weekend break. Had a fantastic time very relaxing and a very quiet spot. Great walking and lovely near by town/ village of Crickhowell is great for shopping and eating out. The welcome was really good covering the detail of the barge, a very warm and well equipped barge.The people in the area are in general very welcoming, we will definitely book again.

“😍 Simply the best 😍”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is the ultimate in luxury narrowboat holidays. We have hired a boat each year for the last 13 years and are always impressed by the consistently high level of service provided by Alasdair and Sarah.
The boats are beautiful with many imaginative design features,very high spec finishes and luxurious little touches like quality linen and super shower gel! Together with top notch central heating and lashings of hot water, these make for a truly comfortable, 5-star stay.
A floating boutique hotel!!
The canal itself is in most attractive countryside with pretty villages along the way and plenty of handy amenities for holidaymakers. Lots of suggested itineraries are also provided.
Perfect boats, perfect location....what could be better?
