Beacon park boat meeting a Cambrian cruisers boat!

Hi we have hired a boat from Beacon Park boats nr Abergavenny for a week in October. It turns out that some friends have booked for exactly the same week from Cambrian Cruisers in Pencelli. We really hope to meet up and ideally spend as much time as possible with them, any ideas if this is likely to be possible given the speed, time constraints etc. Thanks.

If you are starting on the same day it would be quite feasible to meet up if you do a bit of forward planning, maybe at Talybont where there are several good pubs. We have hired boats from both those companies and they are both excellent. The Mon and Brec is the loveliest canal, have fun!

A the above poster mentioned, if you are beginning you holidays in the same day it's achievable with a little planning.

Beacon boats are in Llanfoist, and the boatyard at Pencelli is at the Brecon end, so if you both head for Llangattock, there are moorings there, with a 20 minute walk into the lovely town of Crickhowell where I'm sure you'll enjoy the ambiance of the "Bear hotel".

I find the canal from Goytre wharf to Llanfoist end of the canal a little monotonous, { i walked it yesterday! } as the canal hugs the contours of the mountain it can be limited for views so heading for Brecon via Llangattock from Llanfoist will be a lot more interesting, open countryside, with locks and a tunnel, and a few more pubs !!

Thanks both of you but we did the trip 18 months ago!! We did indeed meet up, can't remember where though!! Out boat from Beacon Park boats was definitely superior to theirs!!
