Boating Holidays River Thames – 10% off for narrow boat hire & Boating Holidays on River Thames For bookings made now for October 2017 to April 2018

The sun is shining and the boating holiday season is now off peak so why not book a last minute boating holiday and save 10%? With there being less traffic on the River Thames, it really does feel like you’ve got the whole river to yourself. No queues at the locks, easy mooring with plenty of spaces and you save money too. Next year promises to be an exciting year and already bookings are coming in for narrow boat holidays and wide beam boat holidays. Our new addition of Widebeam boat Georgia as a self drive boating holiday to the fleet has proved to be very popular amongst our guests. Widebeams provide extra living space and are really like mini floating apartments but still easy to drive.

Widebeam Boat Georgia is 62ft by 12ft and can comfortably accommodate 6 persons in luxury and with the addition of the dinette, can accommodate up to a maximum of 8 persons. Our widebeam boat Geanna can accommodate up to a maximum of 11 people, ideal for larger parties or for smaller groups who enjoy luxury on the water. Both widebeam boats Georgia and Geanna are easy to drive and tuition is provided at the start of the holiday by a qualified RYA instructor. The 3 ensuite cabins on Geanna make this perfect self-catering accommodation in Henley-On-Thames for families or friends holidaying together. Why not book Boat Geanna for the Royal regatta or Henley Music festival?

Narrow boat holidays on the Thames make a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Cruise at your own pace alomg some of the most picturesque stretches of the River Thames. This is great holiday for families wishing to spend time together, whether it’s a shortbreak holiday or weekend break or a week’s holiday boat hire.

As a special offer, we are offering 10% off all bookings made between now and 30th April 2018 for boat hire in October 2017 through to April 30th 2018. We are now taking bookings for November 2017. Please call us for further information or you can book direct online.

Spring is here! The latest on the River Thames Flooding

After a weekend of lovely sunshine and dry weather, we are cautiously optimistic that the River will be back to normal by the end of March. Providing it doesn’t rain again. So, thank you to everyone for NOT doing rain dances this week.

The Thames is going down here and has dropped a foot. The current is still flowing strong however and it is still a waiting game on this but fingers crossed, it will continue to go down and then the Environment Agency can then start to draw in the weirs to slow the river flow down.

Please enjoy these pictures which I took today in Henley-On-Thames. Keep thinking positive thoughts and here’s hoping we can all get out there cruising again soon.

Preparations for next year’s boating holidays 2014

Well, it’s been a hectic season for us here and finally the boats are put to bed. It doesn’t stop there though as we are busy preparing for another busy year next year and preparations are underway on all our boats.

boat holidays River Thames UK – Four In A Bed Channel Four episodes shown Boat Geanna

Boating Holidays UK- Channel 4 Four-In-A-Bed Boat Geanna Episodes Shown (repeat)

On Sunday 10th March, ‘Four In A Bed’ Channel Four, featuring our hotel boat Geanna was shown. It is hard to believe that this was filmed nearly 3 years ago and the series has now been repeated at least twice in the UK and shown around the world!

It is hard to believe how far we’ve come since starting the business. The guests on the Channel Four TV programme ‘Four In A Bed’ were our very first guests which was filmed and initially shown on TV 3 years ago. It was incredibly nerve wracking to have our very first guests examine the cabins and scrutinise every detail. Needless to say, we had tremendous fun filming the programme and all the contestants were great people. Would we do it all again? Yes!!

Many people would never have considered a boating holiday on the River Thames and so we were delighted to welcome so many first time boaters. We are even more delighted in subsequent years to welcome back guests for a boating holiday on the Thames.

Right now we are extremely busy getting the boats ready for the spring and summer season. Narrow boat Gina has had a complete ‘makeover’ with brand new panelling. beams and a complete fresh look. Boat geanna has had a thorough spring clean and is now sparkling, ready for her guests.

Boating-Holidays-In-UK

We have had many bookings this year for boat Geanna and for Boat Gina and we still have availability. Boating holidays in the UK and canal boat holidays in the UK are an ideal way to perhaps celebrate a 40th birthday party, or a 60th birthday party. This year, several rowing teams have booked Boat Geanna and Boat Gina to accommodate the rowing teams competing in the Royal Henley Regatta this year.

We are thrilled to be working in conjunction with HRA Henley Rowing Association and hope many of our guests will take up the opportuinty of enjoying a day’s rowing experience on the River Thames.
