MV Edward Elgar


Rated 4-star by Visit England, this hotel boat is 88 feet long and has a comfy saloon and bar. She cruises at a gentle pace, enabling you to watch the countryside rolling by from the panoramic windows or, in fine weather, from the upper viewing deck. The twin-bedded cosy cabins are on the lower deck. Food is traditional British, elegantly presented and using locally sourced ingredients, and wine is included with dinner. There is a jolly atmosphere on board, and the experienced and enthusiastic skipper and crew will make your holiday both memorable and fascinating.
