Bridge Boatyard

Start your boating holiday from Bridge Boatyard in the very heart of the peaceful and picturesque Fenland waterways.

We have a range of holiday cruisers from 2 to 6 berth, plus two narrow boats for hire which can accommodate up to 4 people. All of our boats are well-fitted out to make your holiday a comfortable and memorable experience.

A holiday afloat on the Cambridgeshire waterways opens up a whole new world of relaxed pleasure as 150 miles of tranquil, unspoilt rivers (including the River Ouse and River Cam) wind gently through lush meadowland and low-lying fens, passing some of Britain’s loveliest cities and towns.

Your holiday can start on a Friday, Saturday, Monday or Tuesday, with pick up times from 1pm (instruction available from 2pm). Holidays are for 3, 4 or 7 nights, or combinations to make a longer break giving you chance to see more of our waterways.

Pets are welcome on most boats. The area is ideal for fishing (in season) and bird watching. There are also many beautiful walks for those wishing to explore on dry land as well.

Our boats are well equipped, and include:

  • Refrigerator, cooker and heating
  • TV, hairdryer and CD radio
  • Bed linen
  • Shower and flush toilet
  • A map of the river
  • A 12V socket for charging mobile phones (car lead required)
  • Insurance

Parking is available for 2 cars per booking, and rowing dinghies are available for an extra charge.
