Crafty Boaters Static Narrowboat Accommodation on the River Thames

We are Martin and Sarah Lee, and we live at the top of the navigable River Thames in Lechlade-on-Thames, Gloucestershire. Currently, we have three boats. Our home is a 55ft Dutch Barge called Skûtsje. Together as Crafty Boaters, we offer static narrowboat accommodation on our boat Lark Rise III. Last, we have another Dutch barge being renovated she is called Aaltje. Our boats are moored in the quiet surroundings of Lechlade Marina. The narrowboat has everything to offer from cosy nights in by the stove to exploring the great outdoors.

Our lovely boat is available for a minimum of 2 nights up to a maximum of 28 nights stay. The boat is an ideal place to start if you have been thinking of a narrowboat holiday, but are not confident to take a boat out yourself. Or perhaps you are thinking about living on a narrowboat but would like to try it out first. Whatever your reasons for wanting a narrowboat stay, Lark Rise III is in an ideal position with views of the River Thames.

You can find out more about our static narrowboat accommodation here, and browse photographs of our local surroundings in our gallery here. Do contact us if you would like more information, or download our brochure here.

You can stay up to date with our nautical lifestyle, and with our progress renovating Aaltje on Facebook and Instagram. We hope you come and visit us soon and in the meantime enjoy exploring our website.
