  • Excellent idea and so relaxing!


    Last weekend I stayed on a Beds on Board yacht and found the whole experience totally brilliant! Such a good idea - there's nothing quite so relaxing as sitting on deck in the sunshine and watching the world go by! The yacht was very well appointed and even had a kettle! Comfortable beds and the best nights sleep for a long while. I will definitely be seeking out other Beds on Boards - in fact I'm now looking on there before Air B&B as far more exciting if heading somewhere near water!
