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.

I loved the boat experience since we are from the coast in calf. And having lived on a boat. If your not used to smells of the sea this might not be for you. The generators run all night so if you are sensitive to noise bring earplugs or just close windows. I love all the white…

Fantastic location. We had an amazing time enjoying the tranquility and beauty of Little Venice while still being just minutes from Paddington Station. It was everything we hoped for and more!

For many reasons I don’t think Aaron read the website description. Clearly states the boat is for four. If he had asked/warned me beforehand we could have done something. Total exaggeration regarding water, toilet and WiFi. I say the same to ALL guests to remind them it’s a…

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…
