The Barges

Onderneming (Enterprise in English)

On the River Orwell at Pin Mill, Suffolk – Sleeps 6-8. Onderneming is huge! Perfect for families and small groups of friends seeking a peaceful getaway.

Twee Gebroeders (Two Brothers in English)

On the River Deben at The Tidemill, Woodbridge, Suffolk – Sleeps 2-4. Twee Gebroeders is the perfect romantic bolthole for couples.

Onderneming is available for 2 or 3 night weekends, midweek breaks or longer holidays. Discounts for midweek breaks off-peak for couples and small groups. Built in 1899, she is almost 100ft in length and 18ftwide! She sleeps 6 comfortably in three double bedrooms but also has a double sofa-bed in the lower saloon. With high ceilings, no expense has been spared in this conversion, with really comfy beds and all the best bits of modern living , she still retains many original features such as her portholes and panelling inside, and her original wheel and colossal dagger boards on the outside. She has one en-suite wet-room and 2 additional bathrooms including one with a bath.

There are 2 large saloons (lounge & dining areas to you and I), one of which is in the original wheelhouse, with lots of seating and both have fully fitted kitchens so you can cook and chat in either! The wheelhouse saloon benefits from the beautiful river views and the lower saloon has a fabulous wood-burning stove for cosy evenings by the fire. You can also sit up on the deck with your morning coffee or watch the sun go down, it’s up to you.

Onderneming is moored so this is not a sailing holiday. She is static but due to her size you will not really feel her moving.

If you want to escape the real world for a bit, this is the perfect place to do it! A 180 degree view of the River Orwell to just sit and unwind, an amazing pub the minute you step onto dry land and a breathtaking river walk once you’ve finished in the pub. What more could you want?

Twee Gebroeders is based on the iconic waterfront at The Tidemill in Woodbridge, Suffolk. Absolutely no expense has been spared in this renovation!

With a discount for couples, she offers comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to 4 in 2 cabins; 1 double and 1 twin, along with a modern shower room, open saloon with a beautiful range cooker and outside there’s a lovely open cockpit with teak seating to relax, unwind and enjoy the views of the river and The Tidemill. All of the bespoke cabinetry inside was hand-crafted by a local furniture maker and she features wonderful handmade tiles in the shower room in the Dutch Delft style, in keeping with her heritage.

We welcome up to three dogs on board and we have a reputation for combining luxury, with a highly open, dog-friendly approach. The best of both worlds for you and your dogs.

She was lovingly restored in 2008 from the hull upwards and no expense was spared, including all of the cabinetry and the centrepiece of the saloon, the fabulous cast iron oil fired range supplying heating, hot water and cooking on board.

Twee Gebroeders is moored so this is not a sailing holiday. She is static but due to her size you will not really feel her moving.

Onderneming Guest Reviews

Glorious sunset on the deck of the Endeavour, after a delicious meal at the Butt and Oyster with our dog.  Life doesn’t get much better!

A lovely restful holiday on a beautiful boat.  Incredible weather and a lovely welcome pack.

Lovely stay, four grandchildren loved it, the wildlife, the water and amazing weather.  Great barge, ideal for a family stay.

Twee Gebroeders Guests Reviews

Splendid.   What a fantastic boat, everything so comfy and accommodating.  Woobridge is fab, everything you need including cheeky shopping!  We wish time would slow down…we will be back for more!

Thank you so much for a wonderful week on the beautiful TG.  Clean and comfortable, enjoyed relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine.  Loved all the cafes, pubs etc especially the Hut and lovely cakes from the bread shop.  Overall, fantastic stay in sunny Suffolk in the most unique accommodation.  Thank you very much.

The perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of London life.  A very special place to visit .  Wish we could stay much longer.

Lovely comfortable boat and so peaceful.  Sorry we couldn’t stay longer.
