Stay on this comfortable narrow boat and experience London from a different point of view. Completed in 2011 this canal boat offers a truly awesome boat living experience. With her 57 foot (17 meters) in length and almost 7 foot width (2,1 meters) she can sleep 4 in comfort. Located in Little Venice you are in the perfect location, very close to the city center. You also get to experience this very pretty part of London. Famous for its hundreds of beautiful canal boats and great surroundings. This houseboat offers the best of both worlds. A peaceful and quiet place in one of the most desired parts of London. As well as a great location from which you are quickly at the most popular parts of London
- Sleeping on this boat is a great adventure for anyone. If you want to experience what staying on the water is like but also want to be able to explore the City: this boat is for you. With it's double cabin at the front and a comfortable front deck you won't miss out on anything. There are two single bunk beds and a very comfortable sofa which flattens out to a double bed in the living area. Allowing for a good night's sleep.
The bathroom is equipped with a shower, a cassette toilet and a wash basin, making sure you can get a fresh start to your day. Towels are provided for you.
There is a wall mounted digital TV with DVD/CD player. Which you can watch from your large comfy sofa.
There are many restaurants and pubs in the area but sometimes staying in can be just as nice. The galley has a gas hob and oven with grill, a good size fridge with freezer compartment. The kitchen is well equipped, so you can cook a meal if you want.
Water is held in a tank onboard and needs topping up every few days (depending on your usage). This will be done by your host.
The boat has a shore supply of electricity which powers the AC system. A DC system powers the fridge and water pumps. An on board charger takes care of the batteries.
Heating is provided by the solid fuel stove which burns a combination of smokeless coal and logs (provided). Making the colder winter nights comfy and warm. The stove can be controlled and kept going 24 hours in very cold weather.
The boat is very close to Paddington station with fast train connections to Heathrow Airport. The closest tube stations are Warwick Avenue and Paddington. Exploring London is very easy from this great location. Follow the canal (on foot) through Regent's Park past the zoo to Camden. Or East to Victoria Park and Limehouse Basin. A few great attractions to visit are the London eye, get to see London from a birds view. Visit Buckingham Palace or view the great Big Ben. There is just too much to list within short distance, so experience it yourself!
Houseboat the narrowboat, named after my mother, is moored in just about the best canal location you could find in Central London. I have lived on boats for many years now and have grown to love the canal and river environment. I will make you welcome and comfortable on Houseboat and be on call at all times.

Unforgetable lovely stay
Staying at Jessie definitely made our visit to London unforgettable: our kids loved having dinner and sleeping at the boat and feeding the ducks that live on the channel throughout the boat window. It is a cozy boat (pretty narrow but comfortable) and Meg is a super-host. We appreciated her kind advice for our stay, her guidance on how the boat works (shower, WC...), and the welcome fruit/food she kindly gave us. And we also enjoyed the extensive collection of DVDs available at the boat. A lovely and great stay in London to be repeated!!
