El alojamiento
This beautiful 40ft narrowboat was built by Springer Engineering in 1978, and has been in the ownership of the same family ever since. She has been fully updated and modernised with a full refurbishment completed January 2017. She is powered by a 1.5litre diesel Beta Marine engine commissioned January 2020.

If you have never been on a canal boat before, there are a few things you need to be aware of which is fairly typical of any narrowboat on the canal. The water tank is located in the bow of the boat, and the more water you use by showering, using the toilet and washing up, the more frequently you will need to fill the tank from the many free water points along the canal. You will need to use the BWB key provided to unlock the standpipes on the towpath. Electricity is generated by the engine, and to a lesser extent by the solar panel, this is stored in 3 leisure batteries. Cruising for about 3 hours a day should be sufficient to recharge the batteries to power the TV, water pump and toilet. The boat has a “hook up”, which may be used at a suitable charging point, usually in a marina, so you don’t need to run the engine, perhaps useful if you decide to take a day or two off cruising to explore the local area. Running the engine also heats up the hot water tank, however this can be heated up independently using the central heating and so is not totally dependant on the engine to do the job.

Home comforts include a useful galley area incorporating a microwave, cooker with four gas hobs, grill and oven, electric fridge with a small freezer compartment and a useful sink with drainer. A cosy lounge/diner has a radiator and table that can accommodate four people to eat food or play board games, cards or dominoes etc. or used as a desk with your laptop plugged into the 12v sockets. A TV and DVD player is mounted on the wall adjacent to the table, this then leads onto a good sized bathroom with a radiator towel rail, basin, mirror, large shower cubicle and flush toilet. On from this is the forward cabin with another radiator, this cabin may be used as a twin bedroom with two single beds, or easily converted into a king size bed.

The central heating on the boat may be programmed to come on and off when you like.

The narrowboat is 40ft long which makes it easy to manoeuvre and turn at “winding” points on the canals. The stern of the boat is large and provides a useful outdoor space for relaxing on deck chairs when the weather is good, also there are two seats on the bow of the boat. Access to the boat is via the stern, down 3 steep steps. Obviously the boat is on water so any children must be closely supervised, do not rely solely on the use of life jackets, which are provided.

There are eight pubs all within walking distance in Shardlow, the furthest one is a mile away and the nearest one only a few hundred yards away. They all serve food.
There is also an Indian restaurant and a Chinese restaurant all of which are only about half a mile walk away.

Otros aspectos destacables
Space is limited on narrow boats, so please bear this in mind when packing for clothes and food.
Please bring bottled water because we don’t recommend drinking water from the boat tank. Water from the tank is perfectly safe to shower in, clean teeth etc.
Remember to bring sunscreen, it is easy to burn when the weather is good.
Please bring non slip shoes and a waterproof coat, just in case!
