Houseboat summary

Stay on this beautiful romantic narrow boat in the heart of London and see the city from a different perspective. This 53 foot (16 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.

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 moored on Browning's Pond in Little Venice, a 5 minute walk from Paddington station

    A wonderful weekend stay!

    This is a lovely houseboat and Sam made sure I had a wonderful time. The communication was very smooth and I felt very welcome on the boat. I can fully recommend the narrow boat for your next stay on a houseboat!

    Different experience

    The houseboat looks exactly like the pictures with plenty of space for 2 people and our dog. The boat sits on a quiet spot of brownings pond in the middle of little Venice. The bath was fantastic especially when you open the windows in the bathroom, chilling and watching the ducks sail by. Well equipped boat, easy to get in and out of as I was worried by a previous review saying you needed good upper strength. Don’t let that comment put you off, I got in and out carrying the dog. No TV which was bliss, only downside was the advertised washing machine did not work. Would highly recommend this houseboat and would definitely return. Did I say how comfy the king size bed was, slept so well.
