Stunning boat on the river Soar Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire border. You will have this beautiful boat to yourselves and I will be 10 minutes away if needed. 10 minutes to train station, 10 minute drive East Midlands airport.

Le logement

This is a wide beam narrowboat with central heating and log burner for chilly evenings. It sleeps two in a double bed (separate bedroom) There is also a sofa bed in the living room and a single bunk in a separate cabin. Nice shower, washing machine, mircrowave etc. Beautiful riverside location on a marina with a small café. This is my home so is fully equipped with books, board games, dvds, fishing rods.

Accès des voyageurs

You will have full access to the whole boat. Please note, this is a residential boat so you will not be sailing the boat down the river!

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I am able to meet you and introduce you to the boat. I will be a ten minute drive away if needed. I can also collect you from the airport for no extra cost, depending on your flight times.

Autres remarques

Please note, the boat is moored on a working farm and there are often sheep in the field. There's also a stroppy family of swans and some very friendly ducks. Accessing the boat is along a gangplank so this is not ideal for small children/elderly or anyone with mobility issues.

Règlement intérieur

The Fantastic Fox is my home so I would appreciate it if you could keep it clean and tidy and leave it in the condition you find it in. I won't be emptying my fridge/food cupboards so will leave an honesty box for you to make a contribution to anything you use - or replace with a similar item.

4 of us had a nice 2 night stay here. The boat is in a group of boats in secluded area & being on the water & eating outside/sitting in the prow on cushions with a cup of tea & watching birds was lovely. Trudi made us very welcome & we loved the fresh flowers (& surprise in fridge. Thankyou) The boat decor is sort of shabby chic & lots of books - we had an impromptu book discussion. Would have loved to try the kayaks, but not enough time. Cooking & the toilets were as one would expect for a canal boat - all part of the experience. Shower worked well. Oven a bit too small to fit a whole pizza in all at once! We did have an issue with unexpected dog and house dust mite allergy from some of the soft furnishings so anti-histamines were useful. However all in all a charming weekend & very handy for 2 of the party who came by train ( East Midlands Parkway 5 min drive away)

Beautiful boat with idyllic views. Very comfortable and cosy, with a surprising amount of room. This is a proper home - so much more than one would expect for a boat. Loved waking up to feeding the ducks. Trudi was very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely love to stay here again.

We had a fabulous stay aboard the Fantastic Mr. Fox! Communication with Trudi was easy and responsive, and once she found us at the marina she quickly led us to the boat and gave us a thorough tour of everything we needed to know about living on a boat, like hot water, how to flush the toilets and turn on the shower pump etc - then left us to it. The bottle of wine in the fridge was a lovely welcome gift! The space is exactly how it's shown in the photos - cosy, comfortable and private. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bathroom works amazingly well considering you're on a boat, and the only hiccup was only one of the loos was working - really not a big deal at all. Trudi had built us a fire in the wood burning stove so we had a lovely romantic evening; we even sat outside on the front "porch" for a bit and took in the peace and quiet. The next morning as we enjoyed our coffee on the back deck as kids kayaked by, other boats motored downriver and the resident ducks and swans popped by for a visit and some breadcrumbs. Highly, highly recommend this space!!!

We spent a wonderful evening on the Boat. We were there to spend a happy and joyful night for my sister's hen do and the atmosphere and amazing decoration of the Boat was perfect! Trudi was a perfect host! She was here in a minute when we got lost at the Marina, she gave us all the information we needed and was easy to join if we had a question. The weather was bad so we couldn't use the kayak but it's for sure a good option to spend more nice moments. I recommend this Boat!

Me and three old friends from college days stole a night away from the kids to get together on Trudi's narrowboat. What a perfect setting for a novel but chilled evening with a few bottles of Prosecco. It couldn't have been more perfect. The boat is relaxed and cosy and very very homely. Trudi made us feel most welcome, leaving a bottle of chilled wine in the fridge and a welcome message. We didn't have time to use the kayak's she kindly left out for us, but we all enjoyed ourselves so much that we have pledged to make this an annual event - so maybe next time we will! Thank you Trudi x

What a treasure to find! Booked for a mini break with 3 friends and 2 dogs. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Received such a warm welcome, little notes left for us which was really nice. Basket full of toiletries incase we had forgotten anything, fire log incase we got chilly. Lovely location, lots of birdlife and cheeky ducks about which my friends had a paddle on the river with in kiyaks kindly left for us to use. Would defo recommend it to anyone! Such beautiful accommodation, really wish we had stayed longer. Rare little find which id happily give 10/10. Will without doubt be coming here again in the near future!
