Hotel Boat Cruises on the waterways of Eastern England

The waterways of Eastern England include many navigable rivers and manmade waterways dug to reclaim marshes and fens. They tend to be very rural and with relatively little boating traffic.

The East Anglian Fens and the 'Middle Levels', a network of drainage ditches, link with the River Nene and the rest of the canal system, so hotelboats do occasionally venture this far. Well worth it for the interesting villages, close up view of nature, solitude and hugh skies! 

Father north lie the mighty River Trent and the (possibly) Roman Fossdyke.

Sadly the Norfolk Broads have no link to the rest of the inland waterways.
