Narrowboat Accommodation


About the boat

Lark Rise III is a 50ft semi-traditional narrowboat that we offer as static narrowboat accommodation in Lechlade. She was built in 1989 and is moored permanently in Lechlade-on-Thames, Gloucestershire. The boat has hot and cold running water, mains electricity and central heating. You can rent Lark Rise III as self-catering narrowboat accommodation all year round. The narrowboat can accommodate a maximum of three people with stays from two nights onwards*. Also, pets are accepted by arrangement. She is the ideal place for you to leave the trappings of everyday life behind, relax, unwind and recharge your batteries.

Our boat is moored within the quiet surroundings of Lechlade Marina adjacent to the River Thames. The town of Lechlade-on-Thames borders the three counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire making it an ideal spot for you to explore all three counties.

Eating and shopping

If you plan to do mostly self catering, then we have two supermarkets within walking distance from the boat. We also have a number of takeaway establishments near by as well.

If you plan to eat out, there are a variety of eating places within the town including pubs, restaurants and coffee shops. Both the New Inn Hotel and The Trout Inn are particular favourites of ours as they are both historical buildings and have riverside seating areas.

We also have two lovely antiques shops and a small gift shop on the edge of the town as well as Lechlade’s famous Christmas shop.


If you are fond of the outdoors we have canoes for hire (river conditions permitting), or you can hire a pedal or rowing boat from Cotswold boat hire (next to the Riverside pub).

The Thames path passes through Lechlade, and we have a number of other walks and cycle routes in and around the area.

  • Self catering static narrowboat accommodation
  • Central heating & wood burning stove

The beautiful unique house barge open fire and fully equipped kitchen. The amazing hospitality of Wine, Cheese and bread on arrival. The relaxing and very supportive Sarah and Martin who were so friendly and kind. Lechlade is a 3 minute walk across the cute marina bridge. Pubs Hotels and beautiful antique shop on the door step! Great 2 days. Will certainly visit again…soon. Thank you again Sarah and Martin. Give it a go for a different experience. Much better than a stuffy hotel! (December 2019)

We loved our cost little stay, especially coming back to red wine and cheese compliments of our hosts after a park run. The views were stunning each morning
Thanks again.
