We loved our knowledgeable boat driver arriving each morning after breakfast to take us on our next leisurely cruise to another spectacular location, this is the escape we all needed. Truly peaceful and I read 2 books!
Lodge Style Accommodation
Your accommodation is a houseboat that sleeps up to 10 guests.
Houseboats provide spectacular views of the river from every angle.
Your houseboat is equipped with a modern kitchen, comfortable dining and lounge areas, 2 bathrooms with hot showers, a swim deck and a top deck area with hot spa.
All linen is provided.
This is a self-catered experience and you will need to organise your food & beverages for the journey. Please let us know if you’d like some suggestions on how to plan for this. You can decide whether you’d like the houseboat to cruise to a new destination each day. The houseboat has a generous fridge/freezer and an additional chest freezer on board.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if we have an emergency on Board?
If there is health related emergency we are contactable 24/7. A UHF Radio and a satellite phone are provided to ensure communication during day and night. Prior to departure we will discuss an Emergency Response Plan with you.
If there is an appliance or equipment failure we can be contacted from 8am through to 8pm daily, and can arrange a repair or replacement if necessary to minimize inconvenience.
Can I drive the houseboat?
Yes, under the supervision of our houseboat driver.
Can you arrange canoe hire?
Yes, at an additional cost and only 2 canoes at a time (due to space restrictions on houseboats).
Can we hire powered boats as well?
Not at this current time.
For Escapes On and Off the River, do we have to schedule activities for every day?
No, it is your holiday and you can choose how much activity you’d like to include. A day spent simply relaxing on the houseboat is a day well spent.
If we do not wish to move the houseboat for one or more of the days, do we still pay for the driver?
Yes, the cost of the boat driver is included in your final price because we must pay them to remain on standby for the duration of your holiday. This ensures we retain staff and that you retain full flexibility on your holiday.
