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.

 

 

 

WiFi comes too! River Thames Boat cruises and Boating Holidays on The Thames

Quite often along the rivers and canals of Great Britain, you come across something that makes you smile. Last weekend, whilst visiting our new holiday hire boat ‘Gema’ at Stoke Prior, we saw this little Gem, ‘Duckingham Palace’ complete with it’s own little cannon and soldier standing guard. And so the resident Royals don’t get lost in the dark, it even comes with solar lights, lighting up the Royal entrance!

So, the latest news, hot off the press, is that our new holiday hire boat Gema is nearly ready and will be on her way to us on 5th March! We are really excited with this boat, she will be absolutely amazing with a modern, fresh feel in her interior. Despite not having any photos yet on our website, people are already booking boating holidays on Narrowboat Gema.

Accommodating 8 people, Gema is ideal for larger group bookings or for parties that would like the luxury of extra space whilst on their narrow boat holiday. With 3 cabins that can be made up as twins or doubles, Narrowboat Gema offers flexibility for all different types of social mix, whether it’s a family birthday celebration, a hen party or friends holidaying together.

In response to guest feedback from last year, we have now installed WiFi into all of our holiday Hire Boats On The Thames. This should appeal to our teenager guests especially! Guests can purchase on arrival a 1GB or 2GB simm card and can top up during their holiday. You then get to take the simm card home at the end of your holiday.This is perfect for just checking the emails and finding great places to eat and drink whilst cruising on the Thames.

We are also installing a new Free View TV aerial on Boat Geanna. despite having an expensive state of the Art satellite system on Boat Geanna, it can sometimes be difficult to get a signal from the satellite dish if moored close to trees. I can remember spending hours, trying to move the boat 3 yards, just so the dish can ‘lock’ on to a slither of space between trees to pick up the signal! No more worry now. If we can’t find that perfect mooring spot, then the new omni aerial will be able to take over.

The joys of modern technology!
