This area also has the thermostat for the underfloor heating, cozy for the cooler nights.

Bedrooms

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, with bedside cabinets and lights. There is underbed storage and a convenient space saving rail for hanging your clothes.

There is also a remote controlled 24″ TV, and useful mains sockets with USB charging points.

Next door is the bunk room. The bunk beds are most suitable for children, but they are 3ft wide so they can accommodate adults if required.

Staying on the river is a unique experience. Let yourself be gently rocked to sleep by the calming movement of the river as it ebbs and flows.

Kitchen

The kitchen is fully equipped with sink, hot and cold water, a microwave, coffee machine, kettle, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is an induction hob and an oven. It is fully stocked with cookware for you to be able to prepare meals  as required. There is also a washing machine if you are here for a longer stay.

Bathroom

The bathroom, situated opposite the bunk room, makes excellent use of space.  The eco-toilet uses the Klargester system tank to process waste. The sink with hot and cold water has a cupboard underneath to store toiletries. A full size shower completes the bathroom.

Entertainment

The Pod has 2 televisions aboard so you can settle down to a quiet evening in, if not venturing out to one of the many pubs or restaurants in the area  There is a digital antenna so you can watch your favourite terrestrial TV stations, or stream your favourite content via the internet.

The Pod has mains water and electricity. As this is on a “boat” there is a limited supply of hot water, so no lingering! Waste water is processed by a unique Klagester system. Dirty water is treated and sanitised before then going back into the river. 

The boatyard has plenty of parking and 2 spaces are reserved for you. It has full security systems to ensure your peace of mind.

Utilities

And for those little extras....
