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. You pick the boat up from our base in Caversham where there is a secure locked car park. 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...This is a self drive boating holiday with a unique difference.

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

Staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Great introduction/briefing/safety session on arrival with lots of practical tips and this really helped as the river was running quite high after the rains - 'Geanna' is quite a large lady and needs attention at all...More
