Sleep on a boat in the UK by renting with Beds on Board and experience all the history and landscapes from your water-based accommodation.

Historic cities and villages, rolling hills and stunning coasts, rivers and lakes. What better way to experience all this than by staying on a boat rather than a hotel or B&B?

We have yachts in coastal marinas, canal barges, houseboats, luxury motor yachts and often for less than you would pay in a hotel, so search below and rent a boat instead of a hotel for your next UK break.
