Houseboats for Self Catering Houseboat Holidays
Not exactly a country cottage as such, but houseboats can offer a similar peaceful and secluded self-catering environment, in the country, with the added advantage of being on the river where you can watch the world go by at a much more leisurely pace. There is also something special about a houseboat holiday, particularly where the houseboat is moored so you can just enjoy canal or riverside life.
Most houseboats for self catering holidays are moored. Houseboats can certainly be a memorable option and by and large offer fantastic riverside views. If you enjoy being at the waters edge, there probably isn't any closer that you can get than on a houseboat. If you've ever dreamed of living that alternative lifestyle in a boat then here's your chance to try it out with a holiday.
