Hi, We are looking to hire a long boat for a day and a night for up to 4 people. Do you do that? Paula

Response from PENNYLANERIVERBOAT | Property representative |
No we are a private hire venue for parties of up to 100 people, not a barge you can hire to operate yourself. Try bath narrowboats or sally boats they may be able to help. Good luck
