Beacon Park Boats offers 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. We design and build our own narrowboats: expect luxurious beds, exquisite shower rooms, high-spec kitchens, central heating, wood-burning stoves and bow thrusters for easy boat handling.

Beacon Park Boats is perfectly placed at the mid-point of the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal. A round trip to Brecon will fill a 3 or 4-night break, while a week gives you time to explore the whole canal and several of the pretty towns and villages spread along its route.

• 19 narrowboats, all 5-star, built and designed by us
• Each boat sleeps 2-8 people
• 3, 4 and 7 day holidays, or longer
• Start Monday, Friday or Saturday
• Available for cruising March to early November; moored houseboats available November to March
• Dogs stay for free
• Totally inclusive price: no hidden extras for fuel, linen, towels, insurance, Wi-Fi or car parking
