Amazons is a floating houseboat situated on the edge of a quiet boatyard at Beccles on the scenic River Waveney. The property sleeps a maximum of 4 people in 2 bedrooms; a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with bunks. A rowboat is included with the property for pleasant outings on the waterway.

The kitchen has an electric cooker with 4 ring hob, oven and grill, plus a microwave oven and a fridge with small freezer compartment. There is a family bathroom with bath and hand held shower attachment, WC and hand basin. Outside there is a small private veranda allowing you the opportunity to sunbathe, enjoy a spot of fishing (during open season) or simply to take in the views across the water and surrounding countryside.
Water-based activities are available onsite for an additional charge, including SUP (Stand-Up Paddleboard) lessons, guided canoe and kayak tours, pedal boats for 2 and self-drive day boat hire.
Nearby, the charming town of Beccles is made up of small market squares and winding streets alongside the River Waveney. Around every corner are quirky, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and a smattering of local pubs. Locally you’ll find Beccles Lido, various boat trips, the Friday street market and a local history museum.
Further afield there are Transport, Aviation and Naval Museums; outdoor go-karting, or gardens and medieval churches to explore; plus the coast is just 20 minutes away by car, so you'll find plenty to do if you like to stay busy.
