JESSIE the narrowboat is moored in the heart of Little Venice on the north bank of the Pool of Little Venice and just opposite Brownings Island. It’s a stones throw from Paddington Station. Convenient, pretty and very relaxing.

De ruimte
Stay on this lovely individual, comfortable boat in the heart of London and experience the capital from a different point of view.

Jessie is a 57 foot canal boat (or narrowboat) completed in 2011. She is 6 foot 10 inches wide. She can sleep 4 people in comfort, for 2 she is very comfortable. The boat has a warm inviting interior and space on deck to sit and watch the world go by. The appropriately named Little Venice (a name coined by the poet Robert Browning) is a very pretty corner of London, famous as home to hundreds of beautiful canal boats and convenient base from which to explore the capital. Two underground stations and good bus routes to all parts of the city are a short walk away. There is something very special about returning to the peace and quiet of the canal after a day in the city. There are lots of local pubs, restaurants, cafe and shops in the immediate neighbourhood.

Free Wifi connection.

The sleeping accommodation is made up of a double cabin at the front with doors to a small but comfortable front deck. There are two single bunk beds to the centre of the boat and a very comfortable sofa which flattens out to a double bed. If you think you want to use the sofa bed please let me know at the time of booking as it need preparation.

The bathroom has a shower, a cassette toilet, and a wash basin with shaving point.

The living area is to the centre of the boat with a solid fuel stove for chilly evenings, a wall mounted digital TV (DVD/CD player). There is a large comfy sofa/bed (storage underneath for bedding). A folding dinning table and additional chairs allows for 6 place setting.

The galley has a gas hob and oven with grill, a good size fridge with freezer compartment, a sink and draining board, cupboards and drawers housing all the usual kitchen equipment.

Water is held in a tank onboard and needs topping up every few days (depending on your usage). This will be done by your host.

The boat has a shore supply of electricity which powers the AC system. A DC system powers the fridge and waters pumps. A charger needs to be switched on to recharge the batteries.

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 the stove before going out and a little attention on your return. It keeps the boat warm and cosy. An eco fan assists circulation.

Living on board is not quite like a conventional house and needs an understanding and patience with the obvious limitations in space and supply of resources. It may therefore not be for everyone.

I've loved boats and water all my life. I spent long periods living on the south coast gazing at the sea and wishing I could get afloat. It was only when I looked inland to the rivers and fantastic canal system of Britain did it become possible. I have swapped a normal house for two narrowboats. I live aboard one and offer the other JESSIE (named after my late mother) for interested people to stay on while visiting London. I've made the boat as comfortable as possible and love to stay on her myself whenever I can. She has a great central position on the canal at Little Venice and I am never too far away on my other boat if needed. I enjoy sharing the fun of boats. You'll get a warm welcome on JESSIE.
