Here’s the thing: we can’t claim to offer the most romantic retreat on England’s canals without providing the comfiest bed.

We know  exactly what it’s like to spend hours tossing and turning on a thin, lumpy mattress in a damp hire boat and this is not what we want for you!

The mattress we’ve chosen is a king-sized and luxury pocket sprung, manufactured in the North of England. It’s 27.5cm deep (that’s 11″) and capped with a deeply-padded cotton mattress topper.

You’ll slip between 300 thread count white cotton sheets and a feather and down king-sized duvet. Warm quilted cotton and woven woollen blankets drape the bed, and finally, you can choose from feather pillows or anti-allergy (we provide both.)

The bedroom itself is still being created, clad in tongue-and-groove and reclaimed wood. The window blinds are of French Linen and there are shutters which open out onto the front deck. The newly-laid floor boards are of solid oak. There are reading lights and USB charging points to make life easier.

All in all, it’s our genuine hope that we provide the most luxurious bedroom possible on a canal boat. Our aim is that you wake from a deep and restorative sleep, ready for your next wonderful adventure on our Boutique Narrowboat.
