For a relaxing holiday, cruise the most picturesque canal in the UK, on one of our 18 luxury narrowboats. The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales is not joined to the rest of the UK's canal network so it remains uncrowded even in peak season, and is rich in wildlife and heritage, being part of Blaenavon World Heritage Site. If you visit only one waterway, choose this one. We design and build our narrowboats to be the very best in the UK. Entirely 5-star, our fleet includes large boats for families and groups of friends, and boats built with two in mind. Set out from our boathouse at Llangattock, the midpoint of the canal, and cruise through stunning mountain scenery and charming villages.

Set out from our boathouse at Llangattock, the midpoint of the canal, and cruise through stunning mountain scenery and charming villages. The canal is 36 miles (58 kms) long and has just six locks, but you can cruise for a week without needing to go through a lock. Around 3 hours from London, the canal is easily accessible by car and train. It complements city and coastal breaks perfectly, and offers a relaxing way to discover the natural beauty of Wales. It's the fast way to slow down. The 5-star narrowboat Grouse (shown in these photographs) sleeps four in two double bedrooms.More

Awesome! Outstanding! We have booked canal boats before but the friendliness and professionalism of the Beacon Park Boats team outshone them all. The standard of the boat (Owl) was exceptional and there was not a sign of anything cheap or tacky. The quality of the...More
