Cruise up the river, pop into the pub or have a glass of wine on the river bank… Sometimes taking a stroll along the river just doesn’t do it justice. You need more than that. That’s where river cruising comes in. A motorboat, designed for inland waterways is the perfect way to spend a day on the water. Granted, if adrenaline-junkie style water sports are more your thing, then this mode of travel may not be for you. But, keep reading if you fancy some peaceful, relaxing inland cruising. This mode of transport doesn’t have to be transport at all but merely a sedate day (or weekend) out. Your leisurely pace means you can enjoy the surroundings from a brand new perspective. You could moor outside a pub for lunch, stop a short walk from the shops or even just on the riverside to have some lunch on the riverbank. At Carr Island Holiday Lodge Resort there are river cruisers situated on the marina, from two persons to 6 persons, available to rent – so take a leisurely trip up the River Ancholme and explore the stunning countryside. The Boats Located 30 metres away from the beautiful lodge site is Brigg Marina. This stunning Marina has 60 berths ready for the mooring of any boat up to 75 feet. Currently the Marina is awaiting the new facilities of a guest reception, a small boathouse café, bar & restaurant, which will be serving great food with beautiful views and a great opportunity to socialise whilst taking in the country scenery. You are already welcome to use the WIFI access that the marina has to offer as well as the laundry room, and toilet and washroom facilities. Brigg Marina brings an idyllic route to explore the River Ancholme, as well as South Ferriby & the Humber. These routes all connect to wider rivers and open up into nationwide canal networks. You will be able to hire our very own boats for your day trips to explore the stunning surroundings of this countryside. The Leisure Marina “Staycation… Learning to relax at home” March 2018
