PLEASE NOTE TO AIRBNB USERS: you are booking a room not the whole property. The Canal Cottages is a selection of different rooms, all modern with en-suite shower or bathrooms, on the Grand Union Canal just moments from the River Frays and Little Britain Lake. An excellent bar and restaurant on site, and a very large garden area to take in the tranquillity of the canal. The perfect stop over for visiting London, Windsor and Brunel University or catching flight connections at Heathrow.

The space
You are booking a room on the barge, not the entire barge. AirBnB listing as whole property is incorrect. Our custom built hotel barge is position alongside our property on The Grand Union Canal, with all rooms overlooking the canal through large windows. With fully glazed doors, the rooms are very light and airy, feature modern fixtures, 40+ inch smart televisions and walk in wet rooms. The barge has been purpose built, flat bottomed and so does not roll and rock like a traditional boat, if you didn't look out of the window, you wouldn't know you are on a boat! There is nothing small about the rooms either, head height is very good and will accommodate the tallest of guests. Entrance and exit to the rooms is also safe, the barge is securely fixed and features steps which are connected to both the barge and dry land, so there are no gaps to step across. These rooms are not suitable for those who require wheelchair access, and not recommended for those who would struggle with steps. Come and try a stay quite literally on the water!
