“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is the second time we've hired a narrowboat from Beacon Park Boats - both times we had the Osprey which is absolutely fabulous. Quality of workmanship, upkeep of the boat and the fact that each couple had a 5' bed and their own, excellent, shower was superb. The boat itself is wonderfully equipped and pootling down the lovely Monmouth & Brecon canal was a most delightful & relaxing experience. We hope to do it again!
Thoroughly recommended!

Many thanks for your review. We are so pleased that you have enjoyed two holidays on Osprey which, as you say, is the perfect space for two couples. Look forward to seeing you again!

“Excellent - Active or chilled: Your choice”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our second canal trip and I did not think they could be so different. The Monmouth and Brecon Canal is the most idilic setting. It does not connect with the wider canal network so it is quieter with less moored boats; but with volunteers at the locks should you still be finding your feet.
The choices are endless. Moor up and explore the villages and countryside, walk canal-side (you will walk faster than the boat!), or drift along taking in the scenery.
For maximum enjoyment get everyone to do every job... driving, day planning, lock operations, getting the next round in!
Fabulous boat from Beacon Park Boats (we had Eagle.. five adults and two dogs fitted perfectly) and excellent service from the staff.
Improvements?... Minor point but better information about the location for water, pump-out and turning would have made day-planning much easier.

“Probably the best narrowboat ever !!”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Truly exceptional company to deal with and superb narrowboats. Could not wait for our second holiday in the Brecon Beacons on Beacon Park Boats, cannot fault the service from initial booking, instruction given to the final boat return. All their staff are brilliant, and the flap jacks superb!
It's so friendly you cannot help smiling even if it's raining, wonderful set up, already introduced friends on our second trip and definitely will be back for more, cannot recommend Alasdair and Sarah more highly, brilliant holidays.

“Amazing, Relaxing, Wonderful”
Reviewed 19 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Because we like a bit of luxury on our holidays we never do camping or caravanning and always thought a boating holiday would not be for us. How wrong we were! Fantastic boat with all mod cons and a great location. Don't have a bad word to say about the whole thing other than better weather would have been a bonus.

“"Absolutely Fabulous" on Kingfisher”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Returned for a 3rd time on the canal boats, absolutely fabulous. Lovely relaxing canal and boat was fantastic, chose not to do locks and tunnel this time as wanted to leisurely enjoy the lovely countryside towards Cwmbran, soooo! relaxing. Abergavenny and Crickhowell lovely to visit and easy walking distance. Will definitely be back next year. The new premises at Llangattock are amazing.
