Enjoy a holiday of a different kind aboard these 100 year old Dutch Sailing Barges in Suffolk. Twee Gebroeders Barge sleeps 2 (+2) guests and Onderneming Barge sleeps 6 (+2) guests, and even your dogs are welcome! Please state which barge you are interested in when enquiring.

Located only an hour away from London, holidaying aboard these barges is like stepping back in time to a more peaceful relaxed way of life. Locally you can enjoy stopping off in the many restaurants and coffee shops, whilst meandering through the streets of the country villages. Alternatively take to the lakes and partake in a spot of kayaking or windsurfing or enjoy a walk through the beautiful countryside. Suffolk itself has a rich history so take time to admire the stunning architecture of this medieval county.

The barges themselves are moored at different locations and there they stay. Think of them as floating cottages for you to relax on! Twee Gebroeders is moored at the Tidemill in Woodbridge and sleeps up to 4 people, with a double cabin and a twin cabin. This barge perfectly suits a couple wanting a little romance, or a young family wanting something different! A comfy yet cosy open plan saloon with lounge, dining and kitchen area leads out to the cockpit where you can sit and enjoy your morning cuppa, or evening glass of wine. The shower room has plenty of hot water and beautiful handmade tiles that reflect her Dutch heritage.

Onderneming is moored on the River Alde at Snape Maltings and sleeps up to 8 people in 3 double bedrooms and a double sofa bed. This property would suit 3 couples travelling together or a large family. With 2 large saloons, both with lounge, dining and cooking facilities, this is the perfect barge for those wanting to holiday together but maybe have some private time as well. There is 1 en-suite wet room and 2 other bathrooms, one with a bath. With a modern design yet retaining original features the owners have created something very special in this barge.

Twee Gebroeders is located at Bass Dock, Woodbridge, IP12 1BW. Onderneming is located at Snape Maltings, IP17 1SP.

Arrival / departure days are Mondays for minimum 4 nights, Fridays for minimum 2 nights and Sundays for minimum 5 nights.
