The space
The accommodation is beautifully designed and has recently been refurbished throughout. It comprises a kind size master cabin, and a sofa bed for additional guests. Velvet is perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway.
The living area comprises a lounge seating area, and a small dining table for two. There is a fitted kitchen, with a gas oven and hob, a good size fridge with freezer compartment, a sink and draining board, cupboards and drawers housing all the usual kitchen equipment.
The bathroom has a claw foot bath and cassette toilet. We provide all towels and toiletries.
Water is held in a tank on-board and needs topping up every few days (depending on your usage). This will be done by your host.

In the winter months heating is by the solid fuel stove which burns a combination of smokeless coal and logs which are provided. The stove can be controlled and kept going 24 hours but you need to allow for this in your daily routine, loading stove before going out and a little attention on your return. It keeps the boat warm and cosy. An eco fan assists circulation. The stove also provides heat for the central heating and there are plug in oil heaters on board.
