Why not take a stay on my beautiful 60 ft Narrow boat 'Peewit' completely refitted earlier this year with all the comforts of home, whilst floating on the river Nene.
It's a narrow boat on the water on a beautiful lake in a beautiful village.
The marina and it's facilities, fishing with an appropriate rod license, and seasonal restrictions.
You see me on the day of hire and when I return when you wish to leave the boat.

A thoroughly cosy stay in a friendly marina. Raffaele is a very nice and helpful local lad, and lives nearby. He will be ready to ensure you have a great stay.
GREAT STAY! 4 lovely days over Christmas. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of London.
We had a brilliant night in Peewit. A beautifully refurbished boat, really tranquil setting and a great place to just get away from it all for a night or two. Raffaele was really helpful and flexible and made us feel really at home.
We had a lovely stay - Raffaele was so thoughtful and welcoming. The boat was clean and comfortable and the little details really made it feel like home.
Well worth a visit. A wonderful boat fitted to a very high standard. Very cosy in a great rural location. The wood burning stove is a fantastic feature. The owner has been really kind, interesting and helpful. A perfect get-away. Many thanks!
Peewit is a beautiful cosy boat, with everything you could need for a tranquil getaway in a really lovely location, and Raffaele was wonderfully helpful, friendly and accommodating. A very enjoyable weekend!
I very much enjoyed my two nights on Raffaeles narrowboat, Raffaele was very helpful and friendly and made every effort to ensure we were comfortable. The narrowboat was well equipped with double bed, bathroom, kitchen and sofa bed in the lounge area. I would recommend this to anyone who would enjoy interesting accomodation.
