Beacon Park Boats, Llangattock
Situated in Llangattock, a stone's throw from Crickhowell, you can find both luxury narrowboat cruising holidays and daytime adventuring all in one beautiful location.
Offering 5-star boating holidays on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal Beacon Park Boats is the place to go for a unique and bespoke experience. Cruise at just 2½ miles an hour past magnificent mountains and pretty canalside villages in the national park, get up close to wildlife, and, most importantly, find time to relax with family and friends. They design and build their own narrowboats: expect luxurious beds, exquisite shower rooms, high-spec kitchens, central heating, wood-burning stoves and bow thrusters for easy boat handling.
Perfectly situated at the mid-point of the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal, a round trip to Brecon will fill a three or four-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.
They also hire electric day boats, canoes, pedal boats and paddleboards.
