NuffieldSemi-trad narrowboat | Sleeps 2 – 8 | Monday and Friday start, full week and short breaks
Just a great boat…
In the centre of the narrow-boat is the next bedroom. In here you can choose to have one fixed double bed, two singles one on each side or in bunks, and finally four singles as bunks .This cabin also has a bathroom with shower, washbasin, and flush toilet ensuite to it.
At the front of the boat is the well equipped kitchen with full size cooker, fridge and storage for your food. The lounge area is comfortable and cosy with a wood-burning stove in the corner, for which we provide the fuel, lovely on chilly spring and autumn evenings or cold crisp winter days .The settees are one on each side converting into a large double bed if required. Plenty of room for you all to sit around the dining table for delicious boat cooked meals. Cooking on board seems far more exciting than at home, Nuffield has large windows so you can enjoy the views even when washing up!
Outside there is a generously sized front deck with seats on each side, brilliant for book reading, fishing or just watching the world float gently by with a gin and tonic.
