We've just returned from our 3 night stay in York. This houseboat is in a fantastic location to explore the city of York and equipped with everything we needed. It is spacious and beautifully presented. Will definitely recommend to our friends looking for somewhere special to stay.
Ken met us on arrival and showed us around offering guidance on how to operate the heating, audio visual etc. We were overwhelmed by the quality of this boat which has clearly been a labour of love for Ken. York during Xmas is a special place and the accommodation only added to a fantastic experience for my family and I.
We will return soon.
