Houseboat summary

Stay on this beautiful romantic narrow boat in the heart of London and see the city from a different perspective. This 57 foot (17 meters) canal boat was built over 100 years ago and is full of character and history. Her independent attitude and great attention to detail make this barge one-of-a-kind. Finished with high-quality materials and personal touches to make your stay here one you will never forget. The canal is an incredible part of British history and a hidden gem in Central London. Please come and share the experience and see another side to London- a quiet oasis in this amazing city. She can sleep 4 adults and 1 child.

Houseboat description

The accommodation is beautifully designed and has recently been fully refurbished.This lovely boat sleeps up to 4 adults and 1 child. It comprises a king size master bed, and a bunk for a single child. The seating area converts in to a double bed. Perfect for a luxurious romantic getaway for two, or an alternative and fun holiday for a family.

Enjoy a living area with a comfy lounge sofa, making it an easy place to relax after exploring the city. When you feel like cooking for yourself you can do so with a hand crafted kitchen, gas oven and hob. Store anything in the good sized fridge with freezing compartment. All the usual kitchen equipment is available.

Enjoy a nice warm bath in the bathroom ensuring you will feel relaxed after a nice day out and about. The WC is a cassette toilet which would usually have to be emptied by the host every 3- 5 days. Water is held in a tank on-board and needs topping up every few days (depending on your usage). This will be done by your host. So no need to worry about this.

During the winter months heating is by the solid fuel stove which burns a combination of smokeless coal and logs which are provided. The stove can be controlled and kept going 24 hours. Some attention needs to be paid to this. It keeps the boat warm and cosy. An eco fan assists circulation.

Visit some of the most famous sights London has to offer just a walking distance away from your boat. The boat is not on permanent mooring so will be moving every two weeks.We would like to offer guests location in West London, Portobello, Ladbroke Grove, Little Venice and Paddington.  Where possible we will attempt to locate the boat in the guests preferred location. Please contact the host to discuss.

    Great place, great location, Great London Houseboat!

    Great place, great location. Sam was so friendly and we were so touched by all the little extras like bread, eggs, milk. A must do if you are visiting London and want something a little different and very special.
