NuffieldSemi-trad narrowboat | Sleeps 2 – 8 | Monday and Friday start, full week and short breaks
Just a great boat…
NUFFIELD IS A 55FT/16.8M SEMI-TRAD NARROW-BOAT, DESIGNED FOR A CREW OF TWO OR UP TO EIGHT WITH FLEXIBLE SLEEPING ACCOMMODATION TO SUIT THE SIZE OF YOUR CREW. AS WITH ALL THE SEMI-TRAD BOATS IN OUR FLEET THERE ARE TWO SEATS, ONE ON EACH SIDE OF THE REAR DECK, AND A SPACE FOR THE HELMSMAN TO SAFELY STEER THE BOAT.
Going into the boat down the stairs, is a bedroom in which you can have a double bed. This can, if you would prefer, be put away during the day giving an extra seating or eating area, quite useful if you have taken one of our winter breaks and outside is a bit chilly. Then is the first of the ensuite bathrooms with shower, washbasin, flush toilet and storage.
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.
