Another Way to Stay

New Year means new starts, new experiences and new ways of doing things. And that includes short breaks and holidays.

If you fancy a holiday with a difference, a new British company has come up with the perfect solution – staying on a boat instead of a hotel.


Beds on Board is an accommodation website with a difference. It puts you in touch with welcoming boat owners who rent out cabins on their yachts, canal boats and luxury motor cruisers in some amazing locations. You can experience life on the water without any qualifications or commitments; from the heart of a city to the great outdoors with its wildlife just feet from your deck. And many allow pets, too.


Costs are generally lower than you’d pay in a hotel in a similar location and because boats are close to the centre of the action; everything you need, from restaurants to popular attractions, can be as little as a few steps away.


Beds on Board is the perfect way to enjoy some laid-back luxury while celebrating a special occasion with loved ones, for a unique romantic break, or a surprise gift for someone who wants to try something new.


But if you’re just looking for a private room at a great price to use before that important business meeting, or as a base in a new city for a few days, Beds on Board can do that, too.


Renting a boat also makes perfect sense for families. It’s a great way to lure the kids away from their screens for a few days and they get their own cabin without the expense of a second hotel room.


You’ll be amazed at how many cities have waterways and how different a destination can look from the deck of a boat!


Beds on Board has boats in over 40 countries, with more owners joining every day. UK locations include York, Southampton, London and Scotland, and abroad you can take your pick from a whole raft of locations, including Malta, Grenada, Palma and Miami Beach.


If you’ve ever wondered just what it would be like to wake up on your own boat, then make 2017 the year you find out…
