Weekends away

Weekend away ideas to inspire you 

What better way to banish the winter blues than to start planning your weekends away with Beds on Board. Renting a boat for a night often costs less than the price of a hotel room and you'll get guaranteed water views.

Our team has helped guests find unique accommodation for two and three night trips around the UK.


The Royal wedding tour: Windsor, Bray & Henley

Messing about in boats has been part of many royal holidays, with the Queen and her family enjoying happy adventures on the Royal Yacht Britannia.

While that majestic ship may no longer be in service, with Prince Harry's engagement and the royal wedding planned for May 2018, there's never been a better time to book a boat for a weekend exploring some of Britain’s royal romances.

Wedding bells, anyone?

His & her perfect weekend: shops, shows & football

A getaway that starts with a mini break in the capital. Take to the shops or catch a show before retreating to the romance of your boat in Little Venice. Next stop, head south to Southampton for some sporting action at Southampton FC.

End the weekend with a short hop to the New Forest to escape, relax and revitalise on a luxury boat in the gorgeous Georgian town of Lymington where seafood, sea air and stunning scenery make for the perfect tonic to finish your trip.

Best of both worlds: city to seaside

What could be more impressive than a break that begins with a stay in a UNESCO World heritage spa city and ends with the picture postcard scenery of Cornwall?

And of course, along the way you’ll be enjoying the cosy comfort of your own boat to sleep on.

This is a unique tour where you can shop until you drop, uncover cultural gems but also relax and unwind with some unique accommodation by the seaside.
