Beacon park boats is based in Langattock and is a fabulous location for the boatyard. An impression of high standards soon hit's you with the yards set up and a lovely warm and friendly greeting from Alisdair and Sarah was very welcome after a 4 hr drive from Cornwall. Their staff are also very friendly and were very helpful helping us on our way on Harrier, a beautiful boat. The boats are 5 stars with everything you could possibly need and very comfortable. We traveled up to Brecon through six locks and back and the scenery is stunning, the highlight for us was walking around the breathtaking views of Talybont reservoir with our two Labradors. Crickhowell was also very nice. Since we have been home our friends have all admired the pictures and we have recommended beacon park boats to them as the other companies do not come anywhere near the quality of Alisdair and Sarahs business.
Look no further.
My wife and I spent a week aboard 'Owl' and cannot praise it enough. We had a most restful week and were lucky to enjoy good weather at a time when the leaves were just turning green in April . The most comfortable four-poster bed was delightful. We enjoyed a glass of wine in front of the wood burning stove and didn't want the holiday to end The owners were very approachable and nothing was too much trouble, they even returned an item by post that I had left in the wardrobe. Can't wait for next year ! If you, like us, are unable to cope with the locks ( although some apparently are manned by volunteers ) there are about 25 miles of lock-free canal.
Wonderful holiday on our luxurious boat - Owl - for a week. Each evening we enjoyed the hot tub in the bow of the boat and were rewarded with a shooting star on our last night.
Beautifully designed and furnished boat. Amazingly comfortable 5ft, 4 poster bed.
A real treat for our wedding anniversary.
Spent a week on the Brecon Canal and had lovely weather. Experienced boaters (family of four) and this was our 10th canal boat holiday but first time with Beacon Park Boats. Boat yard set up and facilities at Llangattock first class and owners very welcoming. Grouse was immaculate with an amazing galley and lovely seating area at front. Managed to get quite a good tv reception in places which is unusual. Appreciated the large shower and water was always nice and hot. A lot of thought has gone into this boat and there were some nice touches, the welsh cakes and jam went down well! Lots of useful information provided. Chose the active week itinerary so we were able to travel the whole length of the canal and take in the beautiful scenery and wildlife on offer. The canal itself is quite narrow with lots of bridges to negotiate (some extremely low) but there are very few locks so ideal for novices but equally suitable for an experienced crew. The area is rubbish free and peaceful, the towpaths very clean. A lot of money has and still is being spent on improving the canal. Plenty of good mooring stops with rings. Visited some delightful pubs on the way particularly the Coach and Horses where the portion sizes are enormous. Had a lovely meal at the Bear Hotel in Crickhowell.
Would thoroughly recommend Beacon Park Boats and hope to return in the future.
The boat with the hot tub (Owl) looks amazing if there are only 2 of you.
This was our second holiday with Beacon Park Boats. This time we took our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren with us. The boat was truly luxurious with everything you could want on board. The beds were very comfortable and flushing toilets, shower, etc.
The whole time was very relaxing and at the end of the week we spent a night at the Bear in Crickhowell, which again was very relaxing.
Everything was great from start to finish. Easy check-in and boat handover, easy check-out. The boat was in perfect shape and exactly as advertised. Beautiful landscape along the canal - good pubs - good food. Friendly service - and great sunny weather all week long. We will recommend Beacon Park Boats to our friends (actually we already did...)
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.
