The boat is wonderfully quaint, if a little cramp. The best thing about the stay, however, is meeting Liz and her husband.

Liz and Steve are very nice people. The environment is very nice too, very beautiful (even with cloud ! ahah). Just some essential missed like toilet paper, and maybe add a little bean on the boat can be nice. But it was a very nice week end on this boat! Ps: Thanks for the eggs !

This boat is moored at the bottom of the owner's garden and their home is also an airbnb. This enabled us to visit Oxford with 5 people in comfort. The two younger members of our party thought it was a great adventure to sleep on the boat, which is well kitted out with a very large bed. The older members enjoyed a sun-downer in the cockpit, which had been made very welcoming with flowers. Well recommended.
