Additional amenities & feature info
Gina has the option of either single or double berth configurations which provide the widest choice to best suit the make-up of groups. The dinnette can be made up easily into a double bed, making this accommodation for up to 6 people. The finishing inside the boat has a fresh, modern feel without detracting from the character of living on board a narrowboat. There are airing cupboards on board and storage for your bags, although we reccommend you leave your big suitcases at home. There is a double window hatch in the saloon area which opens out, allowing guests to feed the swans and ducks who may come to call.
