A unique concept in home ownership, floating homes are comfortable two-bedroom lodges built on the water at two tranquil marinas, Sawley Waterside & Marina in Nottinghamshire and Priory Waterside & Marina in Bedford. There are 21 lodges in total, and these exclusive developments are perfect for a downsizing move or a holiday home, where the setting and the lifestyle are part of the package.
