    Stay on a boat in Pin Mill, United Kingdom.

    "Adelaar" is a beautiful Dutch barge, originally built in 1906 but recently updated and modernised. She is located on the foreshore of the stunning River Orwell in Suffolk, 5 minutes walk from the riverside village of Pin Mill. She is in an absolutely fabulous location - this is not a place for party people, but it is tranquil, atmospheric and scenic. You don't need to be a sailor - she only floats for a few hours every month, and even then the water is only a couple of foot deep !

    Your hosts live a couple of miles away, so will be on hand if there are any problems. We will meet you and help you carry your luggage, then leave you in peace !


    Adelaar has a modern shower room, kitchen / living room, a wheelhouse for lounging with great views, and two outdoor seating areas. The master cabin has a standard double bed. The bunk cabin has a double bed and a single bunk bed. The cabins are compact but very comfortable.

    Adelaar has an outdoor cockpit where you can sit an enjoy the views, and there is also a patio-style seating area on the ancient wooden barge that Adelaar is moored alongside.


    New modern shower room, kitchen, central heating. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, hob (but no oven) and table and chairs.

    There is a radio / CD player / MP3, a selection of books and a pair of binoculars for looking at the bird life and watching the boats go by.


    Adelaar is on its own - that's the charm ! There is no marina and no neighbours - just peace and quiet. There is a cockpit for relaxing, and a patio on the old wooden barge that Adelaar is moored alongside. There is a pub 5 minutes walk away at Pin Mill - the historic Butt and Oyster, which does great food.

    There is free parking in a nearby car park - its 5 or 10 minutes walk away from Adelaar, on a good footpath along the river bank. We have a small trolley for your luggage and we are usually on hand to help.

    The Area

    This is a beautiful rural area, with great walks, some excellent pubs and some good restaurants nearby. It is fantastic for birdwatchers, being right on the river.

    What's special about this boat

    This is what our very first guest Steph had to stay, after she and her partner stayed for a weekend in October with their two boys:

    "We had a wonderful weekend on Adelaar, she's so cosy and comfortable. The ever changing views are stunning and it's the perfect spot to get away from it all.

    We did the Arthur Ransome Geocache trail which is a brilliant way to take young ones on a long walk and keep them interested and obviously you can't go wrong with the food at the Butt and Oyster!

    From the start communication has been brilliant and we really appreciate the personal service. We'd definitely come again and have recommended a stay on Adelaar to friends.

    Thank you Simon and Sheila for the attention to detail, the delicious breakfast that you provided and for the great customer service.

    We hope to see you again soon".

    This is the most beautiful, scenic, peaceful and tranquil spot you will ever find ! Try it - relax and enjoy !

    Beautiful barge in a great location

    April 16, 2018

    Comfortable and perfectly set up for a getaway in lovely surroundings. A safe place for our children to explore and a very short walk to the local pub with great views over the water, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you to Sheila and Simon for making us so welcome.
