You can still have the experience of staying aboard a houseboat, but the ability to walk to your car and visit other attractions or even visit the theme parks without being concerned about the boat or using the tender to travel to shore. Public transport is available just across the road from the marina and there are numerous eating places within walking distance.Are you a little apprehensive about being in control of the houseboat? Are you concerned about securely anchoring? Well perhaps a stay attached to one of our secure moorings is your type of houseboat holiday.

With a tender provided still giving you access to shore, this is a great secure option available for your houseboating experience.
