Or ‘Enterprise’ or ‘Undertaking’ in English, is an historic late 1800’s sailing barge, which has undergone a sympathetic transformation into a modern, luxurious, floating, Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottage, available for 2 or 3 night weekends, midweek breaks or longer holidays.

Inside: 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.
Location: 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.
