Enjoy a relaxing hotel boat holiday on the Tranquil Rose & discover England's beautiful Waterways

James & Sheelagh

Tranquil Rose is a family run business with James on board as skipper, and Sheelagh in the office dealing with the administration of running a Hotel Boat.

For the past twenty years we have lived in Surrey, close to the Wey Navigation, and it was exploring the Wey with our young family on our own narrow boat, that introduced us to the wonders of the Inland Waterways. Now that our children have spread their wings, we have the opportunity of running a business and pursuing our love of canals, rivers and boating.
