Lilly Ann is a beautiful 1970's 35 foot canal boat.
The canal is a truly beautiful place to get out in the open air.
I lived on Lilly Ann for a year and I would like to share her with anyone who is willing to try.

The space

This is my wonderful boat Lilly Ann. I bought her a year ago to live on and now I have the opportunity to share the wonderful life of living on the grand union canal.

She has a very cosy living room with a little sofa for small bums we have additional seating if required. This is in front of the log fire. Fully functioning kitchen with full size oven and hob.

The bathroom has a shower and a chemical toilet. Please be aware the water tank is not endless and please be conscious of how much water you are using.

The bedroom is fixed it is a small double and anyone 6 foot will struggle, but it can make it fun trying to squeeze in.

There is wood supplied to keep you warm and I also try and make sure there is milk in the fridge etc.

Please also no power appliances to be used over 900watts this will run the batteries down fast. I have a small generator that powers most appliances but can only be used between 8am and 8pm (the noise still upsets some people)

We had a great few nights on board Lily Ann, it was very relaxing and cosy. I recommend a stay. Lynda was very nice and answered all our questions and was very understanding when we arrived later than expected for check in. Thanks Lynda for sharing Lily Ann.

Spending the night on a boat was an interesting experience! It was very cosy with the log-burning fire and the kitchen was fairly well-equipped. Lynda was very friendly and we even hired a kayak from her the next morning! The only real downside was that the boat changed location a few days before our trip, so we had to tweak our plans last-minute and travel further than expected.

Lilly Ann is a great place to stay. If lucky with location you may be right next to a Pub!. Lynda gave all necessary info . Highly recommend.

Our first time staying on a boat was brilliant! Lynda is a very friendly welcoming host. She showed us around the boat and gave us all the information we needed. Like many canal boats, Lilly Ann has to be moved every two weeks so it wont always be in the exact same location. During our stay, she was moored outside the Globe Pub near Leighton Buzzard. That proved very handy! The boat itself has everything you need. A small gas powered kitchen with hob, oven and fridge as well as a table and two chairs for dining on deck or the tow path. The bathroom/toilet/wet-room is small, but has all you need. Remember there is no water supply beyond the water tank on the boat. Use water sparingly and you'll be fine. The bed is cosy and great for two medium sized people. We had a wonderful time on the boat and explored the local area along the Grand Union Canal by foot. Due to insurance, Air BnB don't allow you to drive the boat. So you will be static during your stay. You can discuss this with Lynda and return for a self-drive on a separate occasion if you wish. I think we may well return again in the near future!

This house boat is super cute, clean and extremely cosy! Lynda took us through the whole boat to explain everything fully, and then allowed us to fully enjoy our stay uninterrupted. She was on hand to help with any queries, and everything on the boat was perfect! Berkhamstead and Tring are beautiful, and this little boat was in a perfect location to visit them both. Thank you!

Hi I'm Lynda.
I'm a single working mum. I bought Lilly Ann because I feel in love with her, I loved living on the boat for a while untill I could get my flat. I love being in nature and the big wide world.
