‘Larkspur’ is a generously sized fully furnished 10×65 houseboat. Brand new, just recently been fitted out as a liveaboard with modern fixtures and fittings through out. It is the nearest thing to a floating house!
The width of our boat (ten foot) compared to the normal sized hire ‘narrow boats’ of 6ft makes the journey and experience much more pleasurable for everyone to move about and socialise, not to mention bags of room to relax, sleep, and cook!
Larkspur comprises a master bedroom at the bow (1 x double) and a second bedroom in the middle (2 x single beds) plus a further sofa bed in the lounge. The master bedroom features doors that open out to a quaint seating area at the front of boat as well as plenty of room for guests to sit out at the back of the boat and socilaise.
There is one family bathroom (twin sinks & large shower and toilet) which encompasses two hot water systems on board to provide hot water around the clock for large parties. . The kitchen area features all modern fixtures including full gas hob/extractor, fridge freezer and all other dining/eating essentials so all you need to bring is food and drink!
All bed linen and towels are included. The majority of soft furnishing on the boat including bed linen and towels are a mixture from optimum retailers such as Toast, John Lewis and Cabbages and Roses.
The beautiful spacious open plan lounge diner at the rear of the boat comprises sound system, wood burner (with plenty of logs on board) 240V power if needed, Wifi (if requested) and a cupboard full of boating essentials (life jackets, waterproofs etc) but also plenty of board games! There is also plenty of wardrobe and storage space for holiday essentials.
Hiring a canal boat is a wonderful way of life. Eco friendly, people friendly and duck friendly living! Tuition is given before you set sail!
