Luxury canal boat holidays
Beacon Park Boats
is our family business, offering 5-star boating holidays on the Monmouthshire
& Brecon Canal in the beautiful Brecon Beacons
National Park in Wales. It’s the fast way to
slow down. Cruise at just 2½ miles an hour past magnificent mountains
and pretty canalside villages, get up close to wildlife, and, most importantly,
find time to relax with family and friends. Expect luxurious
beds, exquisite shower rooms, high-spec kitchens, central
heating, wood-burning (or log effect gas) stoves and bow
thrusters for easy boat handling.
Take a look at our fleet of 18 highly-individual luxury canal boats sleeping from 2 to 7 people. On board, you'll find luxurious beds, exquisite shower rooms, high-spec kitchens and everything you'll need for the perfect holiday. Take a self-drive cruise from March to October or choose a permanently-moored houseboat holiday from November to March.
No experience is needed as our narrowboats are simple to handle. We provide an instructional DVD and a detailed handover so you'll feel confident when you set out. The hardest task is choosing a boat - with such features as an on-deck hot tub, bow thruster, log burner, home cinema and four-poster bed, it’s not easy!
We are a Quality Accredited Boatyard, and all of our boats have been awarded the coveted 5 stars by the British Marine Federation, achieving a perfect 100% in this year's inspection. We design and build each boat to exacting standards, and aim to offer the highest level of service you’ll find on any of Britain’s waterways. You'll find the same 5-star quality in our self-catering canalside cottages.
Considered to be Britain’s most picturesque waterway, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal (known locally as the Mon and Brec) is in rural Wales, yet close to road and rail links. Situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park and Blaenavon World Heritage Site, it's rich in heritage and wildlife, with endless things to see and do along the route.
Taking your boat
through the six locks on the Mon & Brec canal is exciting. Everyone on board
can get involved, including children. If you’d rather a lock-free holiday the
Mon & Brec is a perfect choice; you can spend a week cruising a 25-mile
stretch without having to operate a single lock. Take a look at our suggested itineraries for short breaks and longer holidays.
Remember this holiday is not just about you; it's also perfect for your dog! We allow up to 2 dogs per boat without a charge and provide you with a dog towel for that unexpected swimming lesson. The path alongside the canal is in excellent condition making dog walking a pleasure.
