From start to finish this was a superb short break Friday to Monday. Beacon Park Boats just have to be the best around. Fantastic quality, comfortable and the added bonus of no hidden extras.
This is the 3 time of holidaying with them and there is nothing to fault whatsoever.
Highly recommended. Try it. You wont be disappointed.
Amazing boats. Loads of storage. First class fittings. Excellent beds. Heating toasty.
Staff helpful and super friendly.
We got some wire caught round the propeller and they were out and fixed it within the hour!
This really is the best boat company on this canal.
We came to stay in December, full off season, and loved the seclusion and beauty of the walks nearby. We stayed in a static houseboat on the site with our 2 pups and there was ample space, brilliant heating and facilities to allow us to live in full comfort. The site is the location of all of the boats along with the beacon Park boats 'workshop' which gave an on shore toilet and dvd library along with during the day, a more than friendly group of people who are more than happy to chat and help you out if needed.
I'd highly recommend this sort of holiday to anyone looking for a quiet bit of relaxation, a bit of seclusion (not that there isn't plenty to see within a few miles) and a 'different' touch of luxury.
I cannot give the trip less than 5/5, price - brilliant, accommodation - brilliant, facilities - luxury.
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.
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.
