Houseboat summary

Dolly Mixture is a lovely canal boat set on a private mooring in a peaceful and calm part of the Lancaster countryside. Whilst the boat is moored, she can be taken out for excursions around the lock free canals of the area, with her easy to use 38-horse-power diesel engine. Before your holiday begins, training will be provided until you are comfortable with operating the boat. If you do not feel up to it, or do not wish to take her for a trip down the canal, Dolly Mixture’s private mooring is also a great base to explore the area by foot.

Houseboat description

The 43 foot long boat was built by Eurostar in 2012 and includes a modern interior fitted to a very high specification. It is a distinctive, spacious, and comfortable boat that is suitable for people of all ages. It includes a fully fitted kitchen area containing a fridge with freezer compartment, an oven and a hob; a shower room fitted with granite flooring; and lots of storage space throughout the boat. All bedding and kitchenware is supplied as well as a flat screen TV and DVD player for those rainy days. The boat can be used all year round as she has a multi-fuel burner as well as central heating.

She sleeps up to four people, with one double bed fitted at the back of the boat and another double bed fitted as a conversion from the dining room area. This makes the boat perfect for all kinds of holidays, from romantic getaways to family fun boat trips. The interior has a bamboo finishing, matching the naturalness of the surrounding countryside.

The nearby countryside is perfect for rambling walks, picnics, and is the epitome of peace and tranquillity. There are some good gastro pubs nearby offering delicious food and local ales. All of this is just a 30 minutes’ drive away from the Yorkshire Dales, the Fylde Coast and the Lake District.

So, if you need a break from it all, some time to relax and you want to enjoy the peaceful English countryside, this canal boat is a unique way of doing that.
