If you are looking for a holiday that is different to any other holiday you have been on, then hire a houseboat. Houseboat holidays offer fantastic accommodation that will be hard to match. Houseboats are boats that have been converted in to luxury homes. They can be any type of boat such as a canal boat, small oil carries and a sailing boat. Their sea going days are long over but the have been refurbished to the highest of standards. The boats have been moored up alongside rivers in city centres, quiet canals and on lakes, such as Windermere in the Lake District.
You decide what type of holiday you want. The boats can sleep up to eight people so they are ideal for special occasions such as hen or stag parties. For this type of holiday a boat moored up in a city centre location would be fantastic. Literally, step off the boat and you are right in the centre of town, ready for a night of celebrations.
Houseboat Holidays are also good for a romantic break for two. You may choose a quieter location such as in the Lake District or by a secluded river. Some of the houseboats have four-poster beds, Jacuzzis and even an indoor swimming pool. The furnishings and fittings are tasteful and of the highest quality. Your loved one and you will have a wonderfully romantic stay on the houseboat. In the evening as the
light fades, sit up on deck and enjoy a glass of champagne together and watch the stars and moon come out.
Houseboat holidays are available for short breaks or for a longer period of time. They have onboard generators for electricity and large tanks for a plentiful supply of water. The galleys are fitted out with the top of the range equipment and the bedrooms and living space are light, spacious and airy. Houseboat holidays are the ultimate in luxury and comfort. This will be a holiday that stays in your memory forever.
