"There is nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats," Ratty mused in The Wind in the Willows. He may well be right, but we'd rather cosy up in a charming riverside refuge and watch the world drift by—just as you can do at The Beetle and Wedge Boathouse, with an overnight stay for two for £50 (up to a £105 value).

Located right on the bank of the river in Moulsford-on-Thames, on the same stretch of water that inspired Kenneth Graeme's legendary children's novel, there's no better place to feel the 'capricious little breeze, dancing up from the surface of the water'. Toast a welcome glass of Prosecco each and check out your inviting accommodation, overlooking the river and complete with rolltop baths or shower.

Your stay includes breakfast, but the real star of this story is The Boathouse Restaurant, so we highly recommend that you pay a visit and sample the renowned cuisine for lunch or dinner.

Come over all Toady and hop in your motorcar to visit nearby Oxford, with its turreted spires and winding, cobbled streets that reveal unexpected delights. If you want to soak in a little more of the boating life, visit nearby Henley-on-Thames, gloriously overlooked by the Chiltern Hills and site of the famous Regatta. Alternatively, take a boat ride from The Beetle and Wedge Boathouse instead.


  • This Escape is for two people staying one night, and is available from Sunday to Thursday.

  • "Situated right on the bank of the Thames and surrounded by willows and fields, you wouldn't be surprised if Ratty and Mole rowed past, as this is very much their territory."
