This year we’re doing something slightly different with our Houseboat bookings.  We have seen an increasing demand for short breaks, both midweek and long weekends, and we’re happy to be a bit more flexible, so instead of our old style week to week bookings, we’re going to release one of each class of boat for short breaks.  Of course you can still book those boats for full weeks if that’s what you would prefer.

Each short break can start and finish on any day, subject to availability, and be for any duration that you woule like, with a minimum charge of 3 nights.

We have also simplified our charging structure to be simply a Low, Mid and High season price.

Please don’t hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or want any further information on this.

Our Sunrise Class of Houseboats are called Sunrise, and Sunrest.  Sunrise is the one closest to the boatyard itself, with Sunrest the furthest away, right on the point.  The bigger Sundew boats are sandwiched inbetween.  As you can see on the plan, the Sunrise Class Sleeps up to 5 people.  There is a double and a single bed in the end cabin, and then another double bed which you make up as and when you need it in the Saloon.

The Sunrise boats have electric heating, and electric cooking facilities.  All the pots, pans and crockery are included.  They also have TV/DVD players with Freeview.  There are showers on board too.

All the Houseboats come with the use of a rowing boat included for free.  You get discounted prices for the use of our other dayboats, sailing boats and canoes, please phone or email for information.

Below you can see pricing and availability.  We normally let the boats from Saturday to Saturday for 7 nights, so they are priced accordingly.  We can sometimes offer short breaks, but usually to fill gaps at short notice.  You can always ring us to see.  Please always phone or email to check the availability before booking time off work, just to check.  We try to keep it up to date, but it’s always best to talk to us to make sure.  We do some winter lets on the houseboats, but you must always phone us to check availability and pricing, as the houseboats come through the boat shed here each year for maintenance, so we need to check that schedule.

The prices below include VAT at 20%.  Please note that we do not sell cancellation or personal holiday insurance, it’s worth checking your home insurance and bank accounts as they are often included these days, otherwise please consider arranging your own.
