“Total Relaxation”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

We hired OWL, attracted by the hot tub and four poster bed - a touch of luxury for a change. What a wonderful holiday we had. Beautiful surroundings, a super welcome from very helpful staff and the boat was all that we had imagined and more. The boats are extremely well maintained and the quality of equipment is very high. The boats are very easy to handle and though OWL is wider than most, turning, passing bridges and entering locks was very easy given that there is also a bow thruster. Surprisingly for us, it was possible to go for a long time without seeing another boat and mooring in the depth of greenery with just the occasional walker or cyclist on the towpath was wonderful. It is the first time we have hired a canal barge though we have had boats and yachts all our lives, we will certainly be repeating the experience.

Delighted to read that your first canal holiday was such a success. The uncrowded nature of this waterway is one of its major strengths, we think. Hope to see you again.

“An amazing honeymoon!”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

We returned to one of our favourite places in the world, where we are guaranteed high quality and excellent service combined with calm, relaxation and flexibility to do what we want when we want. This was our honeymoon and we were not disappointed. Alasdair, Sarah and the team provide top quality barges and service in a place that breaths simplicity. We had an amazing week and are already contemplating our return in 2 years time, but might try a different barge this time.

“Dry Dock Cottage”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018
1
person found this review helpful

This is the most wonderful ‘narrow boat on dry land’! The old dry dock has inspired the owners to create a truly unique cottage. The photographs don’t do it justice, it really is beautifully finished, and furnished with the same care. Comfy bed with good reading lights, lots of hot water for both bath and high pressure shower, and everything you could possible need in the kitchen. The bonus is the setting; open the huge sliding windows onto the canal in the morning and sit in the sun with a cup of coffee waiting for the ducks to come and call, or walk straight out onto the canal path or up the footpath at the back onto Blorenge. The ‘cinema room’ is amazing, although we had rented films on iTunes, and failed to get the TV to see our AppleMac. However watching England beat Belgium on the huge screen was great! There are two chairs and a table provided outside at the back of the cottage, up narrow steps without a hand rail. There is also one set of steps without a handrail inside.

“A perfect holiday - again!”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

We rented Hobby, for the second year in a row! The Brecon Beacon canal experience is the most restful and peaceful holiday we have ever had. The scenery is stunning, the boat is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We slept well each night, visitied great pubs, pretty villages, and lovely walks. Really, the perfect holiday. We'll definitely do this again!

“A wonderful and relaxing break.”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

Everything about the break was excellent. After a not so good break on the Oxford canal last year we were a little apprehensive about what we would would find but we need not have worried. From the moment we arrived, the instruction about the boat, the practical instruction we felt that the staff cared about our holiday. The Mon and Brec is very quiet and there are plenty of mooring places - with luck you even get help with the locks from some friendly volunteers. We are now considering a break on one of the houseboats during the closed season in order to explore the locality more thoroughly.

Thank you all for a very pleasant holiday.

“In 20 years of canal boating holidays this is the best canal boat we have ever hired”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018
1
person found this review helpful

Monmouth and Brecon canal is a pretty and easy canal to do in a leisurely week. Beacon park boats are by far the best canal boat company we have ever used. The boat was so well appointed. We hired Osprey and I can't believe how comfortable the bed was it was full length and sprung very unlike the usual narrow hard beds you get on other canal boats. The space within the boat we had was very well used with plenty of room to move about, plenty of hot water without having to motor for hours. Good quality equipment supplied. It will be hard to find a company to meet Beacon park boats standards.
