Private Charter River Cruises

Cruise the River Stort in Hertfordshire.

Annie’s Launch is a luxuriously appointed narrowboat restaurant, available with crew for private charter to cruise the picturesque river Stort.  (Also available as self-catered boat hire with crew, and for mini yoga and meditation retreats).

One of the prettiest stretches of navigation, the river Stort meanders through pleasant English countryside, along the Hertfordshire border. Everyday bustle seems miles away.

The energetic might enjoy helping to work the locks, or simply sit back for a change, and watch this peaceful world slip by.

Fine Dining on board

The well-appointed galley offers ample opportunity for Annie’s skills as a chef. Her speciality is Far Eastern cuisine, using subtle herbs and spices.

Annie’s Launch home mooring.

Annie’s launch is moored at Parndon Mill, a centre for creative activity providing workspace for artists, craftsmen, and designers. On the ground floor there is a fine art gallery where exhibitions often spill out onto the island between the river Stort and the millstream. Traditional narrowboats are moored here, and in the surrounding fields are friendly farm animals that enjoy visitors.
