The UK's best Self-Isolating Holiday!
Back to home page


Updated 17th March 2021

The UK Government has announced that UK self-catering holidays in England (including boating holidays) will be permitted to take place from 12th April 2021 onwards but will initially be restricted to single household groups (including a support bubble where applicable). From 17th May 2021 up to six people from different households, or two households of any size, will be permitted to share a single self-catering accommodation unit (such as a boat or cottage). Restrictions will then be further lifted from 21st June 2021, allowing guests from more than two households to holiday together.

If your holiday was due to commence before 12th April 2021, we will contact you shortly to discuss the options available to you. This will be carried out based on priority given to those whose holidays were due to commence soonest.

It remains your responsibility to check the current rules and regulations which apply to you and your party prior to booking your holiday or traveling to your holiday destination.

WIth most of staff remaining on furlough, our bookings team is working Monday to Friday 10pm to 4pm but please email us in preference to calling - we aim to respond to all emails on a daily basis. Remember you can book directly online - just use the box at the top of this page!

Please note that, due to the current National Lockdown our boatyards and shops are currently closed to visitors and will remain so until 12th April (subject to revision in line with Government Guidance). Please do not try to visit us before 12th April.

An update with opening hours of our boatyards, should you wish to visit, will be issued once the present lockdown is eased.

Please carefully read our T&Cs before booking, noting that we are not offering refunds if holidays are disrupted through Covid but are happy to offer a free transfer to another date provided the revised date is at or below the original cost, or with an adjustment to cover any higher priced alternative.

(Many insurers are now offering cancellation protection within their travel insurance policies so do please ensure that you take out your own travel insurance when booking).
