Overnight Stay for Two People in a Standard Double Room
Glass of Prosecco Each on Arrival
"There is nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats," Ratty mused in The Wind in the Willows. He may well be right, but we'd rather cosy up in a charming riverside refuge and watch the world drift by—just as you can do at The Beetle and Wedge Boathouse.
The Package An overnight stay between Sunday and Thursday for two people in a standard double room is £50 (up to a £105 value).
The Accommodation Located right on the bank of the river in Moulsford-on-Thames, on the same stretch of water that inspired Kenneth Graeme's legendary children's novel, there's no better place to feel the 'capricious little breeze, dancing up from the surface of the water'. Toast a welcome glass of Prosecco each and check out your inviting accommodation, overlooking the river and complete with rolltop baths or shower.
The Food & Drink Your stay includes breakfast, but the real star of this story is The Boathouse Restaurant, so we highly recommend that you pay a visit and sample the renowned cuisine for lunch or dinner.
The Location Come over all Toady and hop in your motorcar to visit nearby Oxford, with its turreted spires and winding, cobbled streets that reveal unexpected delights. If you want to soak in a little more of the boating life, visit nearby Henley-on-Thames, gloriously overlooked by the Chiltern Hills and site of the famous Regatta. Alternatively, take a boat ride from The Beetle and Wedge Boathouse instead.
