Moored in the heart of central Oxford on the beautiful canal, most people fall in love with Ben the Boat. Cosy all year round with log burner, and peaceful desk space, it suits writers, romantics, and small families who like trees, ducks, and water.
I only expect that you treat it as if it's your own. The boat was built in 1877 so it is simple and basic and mechanical things do go wrong occasionally but!if you let me know, they are usually easily fixed.
It's a bit like living in past times, there's a element of fending for yourselves, and really suits people who want a technology free and simple life for a few days.
