The space
The accommodation is beautifully designed and has recently been refurbished throughout. It comprises a small double master bed, and a sofa bed for additional guests. Barbara is perfect for a couple, or would be great for a familiar friends looking for an alternative, fun holiday.
The living area comprises a lounge seating area, and a small dining table for four. There is a modern kitchen, with a gas oven and hob, a good size fridge with freezer compartment, a sink and draining board, cupboards and drawers housing all the usual kitchen equipment.
The bathroom has a shower and a pump out toilet. We provide all towels and toiletries.
Water is held in a tank on-board and needs topping up every few days (depending on your usage). This will be done by your host.
In the winter months heating is by the solid fuel stove which burns a combination of smokeless coal and logs which are provided. The stove can be controlled and kept going 24 hours but you need to allow for this in your daily routine, loading stove before going out and a little attention on your return. It keeps the boat warm and cosy. An eco fan assists circulation.
Living on board is not quite like a conventional house and needs an understanding and patience- it may therefore not be for everyone. Power is supplied from batteries which means appliances that we take for granted such a hair dryers can run the power supply down very quickly.
Essentially, power isn't on tap as we're used to in our homes.
If the power runs down the engine will need to be started to charge up the batteries. If there are any problems the host will be on call to assist.
