Dawn is a 26ft wooden sailing boat, and a beautiful little space. Modest and humble, she floats on the riverside, facilitating a simple, pared back and tranquil hideaway for those who are looking to escape and deeply connect with nature. The simplicity of this home will cultivate a real appreciation for the rivers beauty and of life simple pleasures.
Although only 26ft, she is spacious and light. Stripped back to her oak and pitch pine frame, the space is open with a raised cabin roof for extra head room.
A small galley kitchen area hosts a surface to prepare food and an electric hob to cook. There is a small sink for washing up which can be emptied by the hand pump and a tap with running fresh, but only cold, water. There is dining space for two inside, but eating on the deck with a view of the river is really special!
A small wood burning stove heats the cabin space. Kindling and timbre will be provided for the stove, but there is also the option of chopping your own logs if you would like.
The bed is situated the forecastle, with a skylight looking to the mast and stars above. There is enough room for two to sleep closely and wake to the morning light.
Please be aware that there is not a loo or shower aboard, but there are these facilities for your use in the boatyard.
Up on deck you have expansive views across the river. The tide will rise and fall, shifting you as it does. Please do not be alarmed if she tilts at all.
Disponible para huéspedes
Access to the boat comes from a narrow wooden walkway and a ladder into the cockpit and so is suited to the more nimble and adventurous types.
