Bright double room aboard glorious houseboat in beautiful surroundings!!
(This is one of two listings. We have listed two separate rooms sleeping a total of 6 people - please also look at the other listing!)
We live on Katrina, a beautiful houseboat with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room, living room and an upstairs lavatory. We currently have two of the bedrooms available for guests during the warmer months; from April - October.
This listing is for a bright room with a double bed and a TV and DVD player with a private bathroom. There is plenty of wardrobe space and drawer space available for guests in this room. There is space for a single mattress on the floor for a 3rd person. (Mattress will be provided)
Guests will have access to their own private bathroom with a lavatory, sink and a shower over a bath.
Guests are also welcome to use the kitchen, living room and dining room as well as the outside deck with its garden furniture, large gas BBQ, chimenea and firepit.
We have got a large amount of books, boardgames and DVDs which guests may borrow.
There is a large TV with a Freeview box and DVD player in the living room as well as a piano which guests are welcome to make use of.
This will completely depend on whether we are working or not. It is a large boat so if guests do not wish to interact with us or the other guests our home is big enough for everyone to have their own space should people want it.
We are happy to suggest places to visit/things to do in the local area.
GREAT NEWS!! ! New and previous guests will be happy to know that we have replaced our boiler. It is now possible to have a shower at a decent temperature without burning yourself!
We have still got a combination boiler so never run out of hot water!
No baths, please.
MORE GREAT NEWS!!! New and old guests will be happy to know that we now have a landline and hence unlimited internet access.
As mentioned, guests are welcome to use the kitchen, dining room and living room as well as the outdoor space, but need to work around the hosts and other guests. Guests will have their own shelf/part of a shelf in the fridge should they want it.
Guests are welcome to help themselves to a basic breakfast consisting of cereals, toast, bagels, various preserves and eggs as well as tea and coffee.
This is our home. Please respect it! :)
No smoking inside, please.
No shoes inside, please.
Also, the outside deck can get very hot in the sun, and sometimes too hot to walk on bare foot, so it is a good idea to bring a pair of outdoor shoes that are easy to slip on and off. ️
Strictly no illegal drugs.
Sorry, no pets.
I live with my partner, Steve, aboard Katrina, our houseboat. Our first season as hosts was the summer of 2015 and we have thoroughly enjoyed it - as have our guests! We look forward to meeting new guests in 2017 and hopefully see some of our previous guests again!
