Brend Taws: River Cruises

All aboard Brend Taws!

After years of planning and hard work, we are delighted to unveil a project that has been a life-long dream for the Brend family:

Brend Taws: River Cruises.

Equipped with a Champagne Bar and a spa, Brend Taws will be operational this summer, sauntering up the River Taw with up to 40 passengers taking in the breath-taking countryside and quaint villages and towns that pepper the river banks.

Guests can expect to relax in the sumptuous signature style and elegant finishing touches that Brend Hotels is famed for whilst enjoying a Champagne Afternoon Tea as they meander up the river, accompanied by the sweet sounds of our resident pianist on a grand piano, this is a first class experience and the first of its kind in North Devon.

Licensed and available for private hire with customised menus and cocktails, Brend Taws is a completely unique venue for your wedding or private function too!

Our luxury liner has been moored up in Falmouth awaiting its finishing touches before making its maiden voyage up the River Taw later this month. If you'd like to be one of the first to come aboard Brend Taws, sign up to our email newsletter to get information on how to book first.

We anticipate that Brend Taws will run twice daily from1st June all summer long, weather depending.

Keep your eyes peeled for more updates coming soon!


We're sorry if you got excited by our little April fool, however with the overwhelming response, perhaps it's not such a bad idea after all ...
