This listing is best suited to people who have experienced staying on a narrowboat before. Life on the canal is not for everyone, while it has its rewards it can be hard work especially in the winter, it’s more akin glamping, so it’s important that anyone who stays on The Snow Goose is aware of what they are going in for. That said , a stay on the water is fun and rewarding, for those with experience and an uplift in the fee the boat can be cruised if you are staying for 1 week or more.

The space
The snow goose has the ability to sleep five people although in my opinion the boat is a little cramped with that many , however it does have a double bed and a study area which doubles up as a second bedroom with a mattress that goes on top of the desk area, and finally a single sofa bed in the living area. It has a fully equipped galley kitchen, a cosy living room and a small bathroom which has a shower, sink, and chemical toilet, which will need emptying if you are staying for a week or more.
It has a small outside area at the front of the boat.

Guest access
Guests will have exclusive use of the whole boat for the duration of the stay, but they must be cat lovers as there is one resident very friendly cat on the boat which you would be required to feed every day

Other things to note
Please only contact if you are a cat lover and happy to look after our cat when you come to stay

Location

England, United Kingdom

This boat does not have a permanent mooring, we tend to stay around the Hackney -King’s Cross -Victoria Park -Camden area, Although we cannot guarantee exactly where the boat will be. It may be that if you are taking the boat for some time you would like to prove it which is five pending a previous agreement, but it must be returned to the same place or nearby at the end of your stay

During your stay
Somebody will be available when you arrive and usually available on the telephone if there are any problems however in the month of July we may be travelling which would mean that we would like experienced boaters for that month who can manage small issues should they arise.
