S.B.SNARK : sailing holidays and yoga retreats

from Dartmouth, Devon

Come on board the elegant Thames sailing barge SNARK for a truly memorable holiday along the spectacular coastline and rivers in the West Country of England. Join us for between 2 and 10 days on a fully crewed, all inclusive, sailing holiday or yoga retreat.


  • Eco friendly travel on the water powered by the wind.

  • Close to nature and wild life.

  • Self contained, off grid holidays for individuals and groups.

  • On board amenities includes a large sun deck, a bright open plan salon / yoga studio below, cosy cabins, good freshly prepared food, hot showers and fresh bedding.

  • Enjoy exceptional hospitality and time to relax.

  • Do as much or as little as you like. No prior experience required.

As the timing and conditions for the easing of lock down restrictions are still so uncertain we have decided to suspend our shared events for this year. These will be available again in 2022.

For the summer of 2021 we are offering exclusive 'double bubble' holidays for between 2 and 8 people from 2 support bubbles. The minimum hire is for two days for at least two people. As always we offer a full board service and do not offer self catering options. 


Please get in touch with your requirements and we will do our best to accommodate you and your group.

What people say


I had such a great, relaxing weekend and the sailing experience on the Thames barge was fascinating.'

Jo, David, Kitty & Hugo

..what better place to stay than Qiao and Paul’s fantastic ‘Pirate Ship’!! My two children were very excited at this turn of events! (Although, slightly disappointed we didn’t see any actual pirates!!) Qiao and Paul are absolutely fantastic hosts, very friendly.


'A memorable break - the combination of the sea, Devon, yoga, good company and great food.'

Book with peace of mind.
