Persephone is newly built narrowboat moored on the River Thames by the watermeadows of Shiplake, near Henley on Thames. She's a perfect place from which to explore, either by car or foot, the beauties of the Hambledon Valley, Chiltern Hills, Sonning and the whole Thames towpath and beyond. Marlow and Henley are close by and the area abounds with wonderfully cosy old pubs as well as countless Midsomer Murder locations!

The boat is a little off the main road but remote enough that you will feel solitude, particularly at night when you can see the stars. Nick outfits the kitchen with enough for multiple breakfasts and the nearest Tesco is a 5 minute drive away. Everyone along the paths are frie…
