Priory Waterside & Marina

Priory Waterside & Marina sits on the banks of the Great River Ouse, in the 250-acre Priory Country Park. Here, immersed in nature, it’s easy to forget that the shops, museum and theatres of Bedford are close enough to walk to. With excellent road links and just 40 minutes from London by train, Priory Waterside & Marina is the perfect blend of town and country.

Crick Waterside & Marina

Crick Waterside & Marina is a really peaceful spot – but there’s still loads to do nearby. For commuters, you’re only a two minute drive from junction 18 of the M1 – although you wouldn’t know it once you’re here (seriously, it’s so quiet). You’ve also got Northampton and Rugby within easy reach, which you get to by
car or bus (the bus stop is at the bottom of our drive). But you don’t need to go that far for things to do – it’s only a couple of minutes’ walk into Crick, which is a lovely little village. 

Come and view our Oasis 3 and Oasis 5 show homes at Crick Marina.

Poplar Waterside & Marina

It’s super easy to get to work from Poplar marina, so you don’t have to worry about long commutes. Located less than a 10-minute walk from Canary Wharf, you’ve got the Jubilee Line and the Docklands Light Railway Station nearby – they can get you to the centre of London in no time at all. There’s some good options for stocking up on supplies. For day-to-day essentials, you’ve got a lot of big supermarkets nearby, or you can cook up something special with some really fresh fish from Billingsgate Market.


Cropredy Waterside & Marina

For some downtime in the countryside, come to Cropredy Waterside & Marina. It’s set offside on the South Oxford Canal, a good way from the road, so it’s a great little hideaway – but it’s still got loads going on.
You’ll find Cropredy village just a short walk away from the marina. It’s got everything you need – there’s two pubs, a café, a doctor’s surgery and a shop for all the essentials. We think it’s a great little community.

Buckden Waterside & Marina

Buckden Waterside & Marina offers another view of the world, equally relaxing. A mature well-established site, surrounded by willow trees and excellent walks along the river. Good connections to the A14 and the A1 mean your holiday home won’t take long to get to, and there are many pubs and restaurants within a short drive of the marina.

Ripon Waterside & Marina

From Ripon marina, you’ve got easy access to Leeds and York, and there’s a bunch of rail links that’ll take you to Harrogate and Thirsk, which are 11 miles away. Then again, you don’t really need them – everything you might want will be right outside your window. Ripon is one of the smallest cities in England, and it’s one of the prettiest. There’s medieval streets that wind all over, independent shops, nice cafes, a bunch of supermarkets, and a good riverside pub.

Sawley Waterside & Marina

It’s so quiet around Sawley that you’ll think you’re in the middle of nowhere. But it’s actually an easy spot to commute from – you’re only a short drive from Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, and there’s great road links to East Midlands airport, Long Eaton train station and the M1. For hangouts by the water, there is Café Blue - a daytime licensed café serving breakfast, lunch and cake. We have both Floating Homes and Apartments available at Sawley.
