Boat Details

Climbing down the rear stairs you enter the kitchen with a cooker, fridge, sink and storage – so you can comfortably cater for yourselves during your holiday on the Oxford Canal or the River Thames. Leading on from the kitchen is the lounge area, which is also the place you will eat and relax. It also provides the extra double bed if required.

The first of the two sleeping cabins is in the centre of the boat, offering the choice of 2 single beds one on each side of the boat or a double bed. Following this and placed between the two sleeping cabins is the bathroom. This is the full width of the boat and contains shower, wash basin and toilet, with storage for all those bits and bobs. The final cabin has a 4ft 6 inch wide double bed.

A door then leads out on to the front deck with fixed seating.
