Whether your looking for the ultimate relaxation or a romantic getaway, my houseboat provides you with everything you could need.

My houseboat is in a idyllic quiet location in the lovely village of bishopthorpe with the palace views from the boat.
It offers tranquility,a private seating area overlooking the river and free parking directly outside the boat.
The houseboat is in walking distance of York city centre (1hr walk, 20min bike)

My houseboat is fully equipped on a electric mooring.

The space
In the large lounge area is a comfortable 3 seated sofa over looking the river, a cosy log burner and a large TV.
The bedroom has a very cosy large double bed with heaters for the colder nights.
Two complimentary dressing gowns for 3days or longer stays & a full set of organic eco friendly toiletries.
The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils for cooking. A selection of herbal teas and filter coffee/milk and biscuits etc.
The bathroom has a shower which works on a water heater so you only get about 8-10minutes hot water so you do have to wait for about 20/30mins for the tank to heat up before someone else having another shower.
The toilet works on a macerator so absolutely no sanitary products / wipes / kitchen roll / tissues etc. There is a £60 charge for flushing any of the above.

VALENTINES day stays - free bottle of bubble/ flowers/ chocs.

XMAS PERIOD STAYS.
Complimentary sherry and mince pies!

NEW YEARS EVE STAYS.
