    Fantastic stay on a London houseboat

    What a fantastic stay! Sam and her partner were the perfect hosts and provided a stay which was safe and clean in a beautifully crafted environment. They were thoughtful and kind and their suggestions of local activities were excellent and much appreciated. I would highly recommend this houseboat to anyone looking for a cosy and different experience in London!

    Extremely cute and perfect houseboat

    This is an extremely cute and perfect houseboat for a more unusual and quirky city break. When we stayed it was moored in an amazing spot in Little Venice a short walk from Paddington Station. The boat has clearly been lovingly decorated and despite its petite size is extremely well equipped with everything you might possibly need (including very handy milk, bread, jam and eggs). It was lovely to watch all the activity and bird life on the water from the boat and the added-bonus of constant sunshine made it a holiday we will always remember. We cannot recommend Velvet enough and we also found Sam a great host with excellent communication through-out the process including some helpful local tips on nearby pubs and café.
