Great location

Sammy is a cosy and comfortable houseboat, permanently moored for up to two people (and a dog) on a small rural mooring just a short distance from the market town of Oundle, Northamptonshire, about 12 miles from Peterborough and 40 miles from Cambridge. Sammy enjoys uninterrupted views across the River Nene and surrounding countryside. A great place to experience life afloat, and to try something a little bit different.
