Stay on a cute romantic narrowboat in London

A true home from home for those who want to detox from the real world and enjoy the peace and tranquility of life on London's waterways. This beautifully designed space is tastefully decorated and accessorised, and is perfect for a couple or single traveller.

Lo spazio
Updated location: Kings cross st. Pancras in Central London.

"It's a studio apartment on the water". "The space has been carefully thought out and very well planned" - just two of the comments we've had about our beautiful narrowboat!
Entering the boat from the rear, past the self contained toilet cubical, you'll step down into our kitchen - equipped with sink, gas hob and oven, and fridge freezer. Theres a breakfast bar with two stools running the full length of the kitchen space.
Moving through the space, you'll pass the self contained shower cubicle, and into the living space. With beautiful views across the canal, the space features a large sofa bed that, at the end of the day, will provide the guest with a super nights sleep. Theres also a heating stove in there too, which will ensure the boat is as warm as toast on the coldest of winter days.
There's an enclosed deck at the end of the cabin, which is open in the summer and enclosed under a canopy in the winter.
If you've never stayed on a narrow boat before, then let us ease you into a new and amazing lifestyle! If you love staying on the water and are experienced in piloting a narrowboat (with experience of locks and more) then take advantage of an extended stay and cruise around London!
We've created an amazing space and we hope you'll love staying on our boat here in the best city in the world!

Accesso per gli ospiti
Our boat moves around London! It's never in the same space for more than two weeks. We think this is the best part of living on a boat. The freedom! The flexibility! Different views along the joinery!
With this in mind, we'll contact you ahead of your arrival and will send you the current location in order to check in. We'll ensure we include details of the closest Tube or overground station.
It is a floating home that is constantly moving, but one thing is for sure - we try to moor at lovely spots around London's canals and waterways. And the boat doesn’t have to move during your stay.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
The space is best suited for a couple (on a romantic getaway) or the single traveller who might like the quieter pace and tranquility living on a boat offers.
Of course, you need to be aware that living on a boat is very different to staying at a hotel or in a rented apartment.
Things to bear in mind are:
Water usage: It's a boat! It's not connected to mains water. Therefore, use your water wisely! Leaving the taps running will empty the water storage tanks.
Electricity: The boat has solar panels on its roof, and the latest state of the art storage batteries, but we ask that you turn off appliances when not in use.
Noise: This isn't a party boat - far from it! Theres a brilliant community of people who live on their boats (believe me, everyone will say hello as they cruise past) but everyone respects the privacy and right to a quiet life. The space is available for single travellers or couples, not large groups. Please respect this.
Waste and rubbish: Please keep this to a minimum and dispose of your rubbish responsibly. Please do not throw any litter or rubbish into the canal.

Staying on a narrowboat is a very different experience to staying at an apartment. If you are expecting a five star accommodation that is spacious with all the mod cons, then maybe this isn't the space for you! Narrowboats are... narrow!
Every centimetre of space is considered and designed around. It's compact. Turning on a tap will activate a pump to push the water through. Using the shower will activate different pumps to the the water away! It's a unique experience.

Lastly, and very importantly, preparing the space for a guest takes longer than preparing an apartment. It's not a case of a quick dust and polish and refresh of the bedding. We have to ensure that the water tanks are topped up. We have to ensure that the batteries are fully charged. We have to ensure that the gas tanks are full. And, this is important, that the toilet has been pumped out!! Sometimes, we might need an extra hour to do all of this, and should there be a delay as we prepare the space, we apologise in advance and ask for a little patience.

OK, it sounds like a few (pretty important) points but ultimately, all we ask is to be relaxed about the whole process and enjoy the tranquility that staying on a narrowboat brings. Ultimately, we'll go out of our way to make your stay as perfect as possible. If there is a delay in preparing the boat for your check in, please relax and bear with us. The occasional delay isn't unknown and thankfully, people who understand boats will totally understand this.

This is a tricky one... The boat moves from location to location around London. On average twice a month. We always ensure that our moorings are in great areas, with bars and places to eat within walking distance, but one thing is guaranteed... Peace and quiet.

London's canals are beautiful and tranquil places and the boat community are very welcoming.

If there's a particular area on London's canal network that you might like the boat to be moored at, please let us know in advance. We will aim to locate the boat in an area you might like if possible. This of course depends on where the previous guests have left it, mooring spot availability and of course, time. (It might be a couple of miles, but with Locks and other canal users, it might take a whole day to move the boat - so lots of advance notice if possible!
