Many people fall in love with our boat. Gorgeous in summer and cosy all year round with log burner, it suits romantics, couples, explorers, and small families who like trees, ducks, and water.
It’s moored on the canal in a peaceful but central spot, and can’t be moved by guests.

Le logement
The interior is both modern and has a warm traditional feeling, with brand new hand-built luxury fittings including solid wood ship's kitchen, and easily constructed sofa beds.
There is storage space including clothes hanging, book shelves and cupboards.

The deck is a lovely place to sit out and watch life passing by on the towpath, or look over at the trees in Worcester College. It has a timeless, unrushed quality where people will stop and chat if you want them to.

The location is brilliant for exploring or working in central Oxford, but for those seeking peace, it is an ideal retreat and a calm space to work.

Everything functions well but is compact. Small well-equipped hand crafted kitchen with gas cooker and fridge, centrally heated Fired Earth tiled bathroom with very hot water and a caravan-style Portaloo. The loo is functional not glamorous.

It's worth saying that this is a boat built in 1877, it's quirky and unusual, comfortable but simple. It's not like staying in a hotel, but you can see from the reviews that most people love the adventure.

We provide fresh linen, lots of towels, and fuel for the wood burner.

Accès des voyageurs
With two double sofa beds the boat works comfortably for up to four people. I lived here happily for three months with my partner and two small children.

I’m sorry the boat can’t be taken off it’s mooring, so it’s not suitable for anyone who wants to cruise. It’s moored in a great central spot and all Oxford has to offer in terms of shops, restaurants, pubs, colleges, nightlife and beautiful architecture, canal, rivers and parks are within close walking distance.

Oxford train station and the coach station are both close by.

There are bike racks but no parking.
The best option is probably park and ride on the outskirts of the city. However Worcester Street car park is close for those who don't mind paying.

Autres remarques
I’m sorry the boat isn’t suitable for pets.
The price can seem high to some people because it's a boat not a hotel.
It's set at this level because maintaining a residential narrow boat in the centre of the city is expensive.

I love everything about being on the boat and the surroundings. It's mostly tranquil and beautiful, and the traffic noise disappears as you walk down onto the mooring.
Being in the heart of Oxford city you will hear people walking past and sometimes student revellers at night. In summer especially tourists are drawn to the area so you can hear urban life passing by on the towpath, and sometimes there are homeless people sitting at the end of the canal, who might appreciate a chat .
Whilst it can be lively, Oxford is a very safe city and I've never had any problems in 16 years of owning the boat.
The boat is fully secured from the inside and when you are out in the day.
It is dark at night so a torch is useful.
