“The best canal boat we have been on.”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

Two of us were on the Kestrel.It was a very clean and comfortable narrow boat with all mod con; the best we have ever been on. A full size powershower and a fully functional loo added to the comfort. The organisation around receiving the boat was all very professional as was the departure.
The canal itself flows through idyllic scenery and was not congested with other narrow boats.To cap it all we had the best two weeks sunshine of the year.
Crickhowell is a delightful village to visit from the boat and we also took the car to Blaenavon world heritage site which was fascinating.

“Out of this world relaxation”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

If there is only one vacation that a person can do, I will choose this again.
The boats were plush and the amenities were complete. The Beacon park staff is the best in the business----warm caring and full of enthusiasm in what they do.
The scenery is straight out of a Monet painting. The villages had outstanding pubs with unmatcched beer selections and the chefs really know how create super dishes with the freshest ingredients. What the important thing is----- the Welsh people.
So hospitable, light and full of humor. Very engaging and yes the simple beauty of their lives show in their smiles. Do this now.

“Highly recommended”

person found this review helpful

We booked the boat called Grouse.
from the moment we arrived at the boat house the service was second to none definitely 5 star. The staff are all friendly and very helpful and the boat house is of a high standard.
The boat (Grouse) is fantastic it has everything you could possibly need on board and is of a high standard.
The dvd in the booking pack is very informative as is the maps of the canal.
The only issues we had was the lack of TV reception and no wifi, but this just made for a relaxing evening at one of several pubs along the canal
As novices we quickly got used to the steering of the boat and the locks are quite straight forward with some locks having volunteers.
The standard of Beacon park boats are way above any from the other companies on the canal and we had lots of people commenting about how nice the boat was.
We recommend Beacon park boats and would use them again

“Perfect holiday on board kestrel”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

After holidaying with Beacon Park Boats 20 plus times, everything was as perfect as ever. The boats have every comfort you could wish for and are spotless.

The canal is breathtakingly beautiful with convenient eateries along the way.
