This is a self drive boating holiday with a unique difference. Our boat is a luxury Canal widebeam, fitted to an exceptionally high standard, an ideal holiday for families or groups of friends holidaying together.Pets are welcome too. The boat is light and spacious, fitted out with bespoke light ash wood. There is a fully fitted kitchen including: intergrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, microwave. The kitchen is open plan leading on to the light and airy saloon area with an L shaped dinette that also converts to a double bed when not used for dining. The other seating in the saloon also converts to another double bed. The boat comes with central heating via radiators and a fuel burner to keep you cosy in the cooler months. The saloon opens out on to the front deck where there is space...This is a self drive boating holiday with a unique difference.

The other seating in the saloon also converts to another double bed. The boat comes with central heating via radiators and a fuel burner to keep you cosy in the cooler months. The saloon opens out on to the front deck where there is space for 6 persons to sit outside. The 3 cabins are all ensuite with WC and shower. The double cabin has an extra door leading from the bathroom to the corridor so that any of your guests sleeping in the saloon can access the bathroom without going into a cabin. The boat comes with all mod cons with a Smart 42' TV in the saloon and all cabins have a TV with Amazon firestick, hair dryer. Bed linen and towels are provided. You check in at our office in Caversham and then you board the boat. You can unload your luggage at the boat yard next to the boat and then park your car in our secure carpark. Following tuition in driving the boat, your holiday starts and you can experience the freedom of choosing where to cruise and moor. Why not cruise to Henley-On-Thames and moor in beautiful parkland setting, only a 5 minute walk to Henley town centre. The River Rowing Museum in Henley provides interest for all the family. The parks on the banks of the Thames at Henley provide ample space for children to play, family picnics or dog walking. All amenities are within walking distance. Then continue cruising through picturesque Hurley, passing the millionaire houses, beautiful Chiltern countryside and moor in historic Marlow. Then onwards to Windsor and visit the castle or LEGOLAND for the children. For week breaks, why not cruise to Hampton Court and moor outside Hampton Court palace? Alternatively, cruise upstream and moor overnight in Pangbourne and then up to Goring and for week breaks or longer, why not pay a visit to historic Oxford and moor right in the centre. The choice is yours. There is so much to see and do and experience on a self drive holiday and the widebeam gives you all the space you need with no cramped living conditions and private cabins for you all as well. There is nothing quite like waking up to the sounds of wildlife and seeing herons, swans and other birds. For those of you wishing to attend the Henley Royal Regatta or the annual 80's rewind Music festival, Boat Geanna is the perfect way to arrive in style and moor right in the heart of the action. For those of you wishing to travel further afield, why not take a short drive and visit the local winery or Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) or the Harry Potter Studios film set. The choice is yours!More

A perfect way to celebrate a couple of family birthdays. The adults loved the boating, and the cousins had wonderful fun on board. Lovely riverside walks for the dogs, too. Everything you could need on board, and really comfortable beds.
