Rib Friendly Holidays in UK

I am looking at compiling a list of rib friendly holiday cottages, hotels, static caravan sites, timeshare rentals, quiet campsites etc where a boat can either be moored safely nearby or kept securely on site and trailed a short distance to slip. I want to spend a couple of next years holidays where I can get daily use out of the boat for a full week with the family and not just have the odd weekend towing the boat hundreds of miles for a few hours fun only to be faced with the long haul back home. Your suggestions and experiences would be very welcome and I'm sure other members would find the info useful. Pictures and website links would be great if you want to share them. It may also be helpful to know if pets are welcome, I dont have a dog myself but I'm sure other members do. Many Thanks.

Cheers!

Thanks Astra, distance is no problem if its for a week or two so anywhere in the UK is fine. I'll do a bit of hunting on the web to get some more details of Pentewan sands and put it on my list. If I get enough suggestions I'll make the list available to members once compiled.

Cheers

Blatant Plug alert!

Hi,

sorry if this a blatant plug, but check out the links....hope they speak for themselves

We have a large luxury self catering 6 / 7 bedroom, 4 bathroom self catering house in Cilgerran, W Wales.....we are about 2 /3 miles from a couple of launch sites to the beautiful N Pembs coast (tidal....work on 4 hour window) or as a base for wider N Pembs coastal exploration. Plenty of parking at the front for RIB.

Bottlenose Dolphins, Seal Colonies, Sea birds and amazing coastline (see our website for details /galleries)...http://razorbillribs.co.uk/

3 pubs, the Welsh Wildlife centre and Preseli Mountains on the doorstep for when you get blown out Salmon and Sewin fishing in season as well as otters on the Teifi below the house (if you get up early enough)

Virtual tour of the house here: http://www.westwalesholidaycottages....pref=cloverton

Well if distance is no problem then why would you not want to come to Scotland? You could do a lot worse than come to Argyll, some challenging tides, spectacular wildlife and scenery and loads of islands, beeches etc to explore. Try this place www.obanseilfarm.com who have their own launch site and pontoon. Its a great base for exploring, the Sound of Jura and Firth of Lorn are both easily accessible from the pontoon which is at the head of Seil Sound.
