Discover luxury accommodation set by an idyllic waterside oasis, just 30 minutes from London

Set by a secluded 32-acre lake, Roydon Marina Village offers moorings, luxury lodges, and residential park homes.

As we near the end of 2022, and prepare to move into a new year, people all over the country are starting to think about giving themselves something to look forward to in 2023 by planning a restful getaway.

But with recent travel restrictions popularising the concept of the ‘staycation’, and giving us the chance to explore more of the wonderfully diverse landscapes that the UK has to offer, more and more brits are opting to swerve airport delays and flight cancellations, and simply pack up the car or hop on the train and discover the beautiful natural spaces on our doorstep, like Roydon Marina Village near Lee Valley Regional Park.

The park is 26 miles long with 10,000 acres of open spaces to explore. Visitors can search for wildlife such as kingfishers and otters at Rye Meads nature reserve, which is popular with both walkers and birdwatchers, or they can enjoy a morning stroll around the lake and canal towpath at Roydon Marina Village. The marina’s entrance even leads straight onto a six-mile cycle route around the Rye Meads, and a nine-mile trail up the Tale of Two Rivers.

Roydon Marina Village is less than two miles from the Lee Valley Regional Park and a mere 30-minute train journey from central London. And if holidaymakers are looking for exhilarating activities and new experiences, they can follow in Lewis Hamilton’s footsteps and go go-karting at the Rye House Kart Raceway – where he started his career.

Additionally, the close-by Lee Valley White Water Centre, which held the London 2012 Olympics, offers something fun for the whole family to do with an extensive range of activities including white water rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, and an inflatable obstacle course.

Whilst visitors could always treat themselves to a mouth-watering and hearty breakfast at The Boathouse Café, or enjoy a takeaway from Roydon Indian Fusion, they are also invited to make the kitchen the heart of the holiday home, where they can stay in, cook, and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals together. What’s better than waking up to a slow morning in the comfort of luxury accommodation, and dining al fresco on a private deck, before cosying up on the sofa with a glass of wine in the evening?

Ideal for romantic weekends away, family holidays, or even long overdue catch-ups with friends, the lodges at Roydon Marina Village are the perfect home from home. Sleeping up to six people with a spacious kitchen, dining, and living area, there’s an abundance of space for socialising.

Each luxurious lodge boasts its own private deck and hot tub, providing the perfect place to wind down after a day of exploring, without needing to leave the comfort of your lodge. Some lodges are dog-friendly too so the whole family can enjoy a getaway.
