Experience life on the water and enjoy an entire lovely floaty home!
A 48 foot narrow boat with 1 bedroom (small double bed); a bathroom (with shower, toilet and basin); a kitchen (with full oven and kitchen sink) and a living/seating area.
Enjoy the vibrancy of London and then relax in the tranquil surroundings of a unique narrow boat.
*** Discounted rates for weekly or longer stays
This is a tranquil setting, living on the water even in London is very peaceful. The boat has a rustic feel and the emphasis is on simple living as opposed to opulence. In the winter months there is a wood burner to keep warm. There is a small double bed, a small bathroom with a 'cassette toilet' and shower and basin. The kitchen has a gas oven and there is lighting throughout. There is running water, fed from the water tank.
You will have the entire boat to yourself, to make your home for a weekend, a week or even longer
I will be on the phone to help with any questions during your stay.
Boat living is very different to land living. It is much more practical and so would suit a hands on individual/couple.
* There are two cats on board. They are both friendly and go outside some of the time. I provide their food during your stay.
* There is not instant hot water. However, warm showers are possible once the engine has been running for 1.5-2hrs
* The cassette toilet is the least glamorous thing about boating - see you tube for info on this
* Due to the outdoor environs of the boat and open spaces the boat attracts some dust and dirt and small spiders (entirely harmless)
There are a few responsibilities that come with staying on this boat: the engine needs to be run and depending on length of stay the toilet may need emptying (see above). These are very small actions and I will explain upon arrival. More generally, please treat the boat with respect; it is a cosy abode and deserves caring occupants.
Boat living is wonderful - closer to nature and a slower pace of life.
I love to travel, meet fellow homo sapiens. I love hosting so I can share the lovely boat with others.
