Theres something to be said for just cruising up a river and these houseboats are just the thing for an easy, no frills break. They sleep five but were ideal for just the two of us. Five would be very cosy.
The boat reminded me of a large, well equipped caravan, but with a lovely deck on top where we spent time drinking champagne and admiring the scenery. It was clean and well equipped and the pitch and roll movement were hardly noticeable unless you were passing another boat.
The stretch of river is beautiful with plenty of side creeks to explore. A haven for bird-lovers or fishermen, or just admiring the beautiful houses on the river banks.
Food and drink is left up to you, so can be as simple or extravagant as you make it. The two plate gas stove and gas oven would be fine for any but the most elaborate of meals and the fridge kept our drinks chilled perfectly.
Definitely recommend it
