    Overview

    Stay on a boat in Aldeburgh, United Kingdom.

    ‘Onderneming’
    Or 'Enterprise' in English, is an historic late 1800’s sailing barge, which has undergone a sympathetic transformation into a modern, luxurious, floating, Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottage, available for 2 or 3 night weekends, midweek breaks or longer holidays.

    This 120 year old barge is almost 100ft in length and 18ft wide. She sleeps 6 comfortably in three double bedrooms but also features a double sofa bed and kids den. With high ceilings, comfy beds and all the best bits of modern living , she still retains many original features such as her portholes and panelling inside, and her original wheel and colossal dagger board on the outside. She has one en-suite shower-room and 2 additional bathrooms including one with a bath.

    Layout
    There are 2 large saloons (lounge & dining areas to you and I) with lots of seating and both have fully fitted kitchens so you can cook and chat in either! One saloon benefits from the beautiful river views and the other has a fabulous wood-burning stove for cosy evenings by the fire.

    You can also sit up on the deck with your morning coffee or watch the sun go down, it’s up to you.

    Dog-Friendly
    We welcome up to three dogs on board and we have a reputation for combining luxury, with a highly open, dog-friendly approach. The best of both worlds for you and your dogs.

    Location, Location, Location
    She is moored on the River Alde at Snape Maltings, a fabulous iconic location, with a range of boutique shops, coffee shops, food hall and a superb pub, all within a two minute walk of your gangplank. She is ideally situated for a day out on the beautiful Heritage Coast of Suffolk, with Aldeburgh just 6 miles away.

    If you want to escape the real world for a bit, this is the perfect place to do it! A 180 degree view of the River Alde and the reed beds to just sit and unwind, an amazing pub the minute you step onto dry land and a breathtaking river walk once you’ve finished in the pub. What more could you want?

    The Suffolk Coast
    If you do actually want more, then you have access to the some of the best of the British coast, with historic, Woodbridge, Orford and Aldeburgh within easy reach or you could carry on up the coast a little to Dunwich, Walberswick and Southwold; all well worth a visit.

    Onderneming is situated within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a designated Conservation Area.

    Layout

    You enter Onderneming via the large wheelhouse at the stern (back end!)

    The wheelhouse has a large, fully fitted kitchen and an L-shaped seating area around a dining table with additional leather chairs. The port side overlooks the fabulous Butt & Oyster pub and features bespoke cabinetry with plenty of storage space

    The kids den leads down from the wheelhouse and has a bench setting and a built-in bunk bed

    A corridor leads off the wheelhouse with a bathroom and double cabin either side and leads down to the lower saloon, which features all her original portholes. This saloon would originally have been a large cargo hold and would shock the original crew as it now houses a superb wood-burning stove, two comfy sofas, fully fitted galley kitchen, a gorgeous built in L-shaped leather seating area around a beautiful old wooden dining table, with extra leather chairs and a 32” flat screen TV and DVD Player, and DAB radio

    Another corridor leads off this saloon to a washing machine and storage cupboards, then on to another bathroom and double cabin with built in wardrobe, then round to a further double cabin, with dressing room and wet room.

    Onboard

    Flat screen TV, Dishwasher, DAB Radio, DVD, CD

    Onsite

    Onderneming is moored so this is not a sailing holiday. She is static but due to her size you will not really feel her moving.

    If you want to escape the real world for a bit, this is the perfect place to do it! A 180 degree view of the River Orwell to just sit and unwind, an amazing pub the minute you step onto dry land and a breathtaking river walk once you’ve finished in the pub. What more could you want?

    Out & About

    If you do actually want more, then you have access to the some of the best of the British coast, with historic, Woodbridge, Orford and Aldeburgh within half an hour, or you could carry on up the coast a little to Dunwich, Walberswick and Southwold; all well worth a visit.

    Onderneming is situated within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a designated Conservation Area.
