I think that they will all be fairly 'pricey' Jonny at this time of the year, brinkcraft have some fairly large lodges and appartments where dogs are allowed in some, also Herbert Woods have some 6+ berth lodges, but not all of them accept dogs.

I don't know what time of year you are looking at Jonny, but as Julia says, you will not find riverside accomodation for 11 people cheaply I'm afraid!

On thought is Hedera House which is about 50 yards from Thurne Mouth - they have a large farmhouse which sleeps up to 12 people or smaller villas and bungalows. The accomodation looks clean, but basic, so is likely to be around the cheapest you will find. Don't expect luxury though. Even so, Hedera House itself will cost between £575 to £1,045 per week depending on the time of year. Don't forget that pets are also likely to incur extra charges of around £25 each per week.

Unfortunately, I don't think it works like that. Much the same as with hiring boats ... you will probably pay more for two cottages that each sleep 6 people in than you will for one that sleeps 12.

If you want cheapness and riverside Jonny, you could always buy a large tent and pitch it down at WRC, and they may allow dogs that way!

You can get tents to sleep upto 20, and with all the gear, sleeping bags, beds, cooking gear you probably would still get change out of £1000, and you can use it all again in the future. The good brands to look for are Outwell, Kampa, Gellert and Coleman. Its all good fun when your young and fit enough to put the tent up, which should be no problem to you with so many people in your party to help out :)

If you take a look at the Brinkcraft lodges, and are prepared to skip the main season July/August dates, then you often get a dayboat included in the hire charge for free, including fuel and insurance for use for your entire stay :)

The boathouse that we last stayed in before buying the caravan last year, cost us around £500 for 11 nights for the 4 berth, but it also had abed settee upstairs so probably would sleep 6 people. they also do a three bedroom version in the same building, along with the sail loft cottages and there various dutch style barns, all of which come with the day boat offer.

Hi Jonny

I know it's annoying, and our boat choices used to get limited wen we had Josh which used to frustrate me in its irraticness at times, but sadly the risks are too high for companies to always want to risk and it is there property so whilst I didnt always like it or think it very fair it is their property and their choice.

Sadly well behaved is too open to personal opinion these days, plus no one would consider themselves to have a badly behaved pet or to be bad pet owners (yet we know both exist) so this term gives a company no assurance or filtering whatsoever. Whilst a party without a pet could undoubtedly leave somewhere untidier or filthier than those with a pet the rectification and removal of such evidence is normally much quicker than a mischievous pet destroying an entire property or getting a hard to move smell stick somewhere, so on the balance of risk scale some may choice not to take it, and that is their choice as owners.

On with the search - you can only work with what you can have so on with looking for properties that do fit the criteria cheersbar
