Penkridge, Staffordshire, England
Kodran's layout allows up to 6 adults to be accommodated comfortably between two, double berth cabins and a double berth-converting dining area. There's a 3rd berth in the dining area which makes accommodating two families with young children a breeze!

AND, **BREAKING NEWS** we've discovered while using Kodran this Spring that the 3rd berth in the dinette allows for a very serviceable CROSS KING-sized bed!

We can configure each of the cabins with either a double bed or 2 singles for complete flexibility no matter who makes up your holiday group.
