Moorings at Priory Waterside & Marina

Home in Priory Country Park

Tucked away by the River Great Ouse, you’ve got the whole of the Priory Country Park outside your window – that’s 250 acres of trees, grass and lakes. There’s loads of stuff to do on-site and nearby, so it’s a good place to relax and enjoy life on the water for a while. When you’re ready for a different sort of adventure, Priory is still well connected. You’re only a couple of miles from Bedford, and it’s just a 40-minute train ride to London.

We can accommodate the majority of craft up to 21.34m. If your beam is greater than 3.66m and air draft is greater than 3.05, we advise you to speak with a member of our Waterside Crew to help you further.
