Lark Rise III is a 50 foot narrowboat offered as static accommodation (she is not available to cruise) moored in the quiet surroundings of Lechlade Marina. She boasts free parking on site, views of the river, and a multi-fuel stove. Lechlade borders Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire making it an excellent choice to explore all three counties. Shops, pubs, restaurants, and supermarkets are within walking distance, and walks, cycle routes, fishing and boating are on the doorstep.

El espacio
Although built in the 1980’s, Lark Rise III displays all the charm of an old narrowboat including handcrafted furnishings and items decorated with traditional canal art. This small yet cosy space is an ideal for a couples’ getaway, retreat with friends, or for a couple with an older child (over 12yrs). South East facing, ensures that the boat gets lots of light during the day, and being centrally heated is a good choice for a quiet retreat all year round*. She is offered as static narrowboat accommodation (she can't be taken out) for up to 3 people with one double berth and one sofa bed.

Living/Dining area
The living area is in the bow of the boat (the entrance to the boat) It has a large sofa bed** (for a third person) and a multi-fuel stove to keep you warm and toasty in wintertime. The stove also serves two radiators, one in the galley and the other in the bedroom, so the boat stays warm throughout. We supply sufficient wood for the duration of your stay, and enough coal to keep the stove in for each night of your stay***. We give you full instructions on how to use the stove.

The dining area is adjacent to the galley and contains a folding leaf table that can seat up to 3 people. A table cloth is also provided along with drinks coasters. The table is also useful for working at or to play some of our board games that are provided.

The galley
The galley is in the centre of the boat and is furnished with a gas oven and grill with a four ring gas hob. There is a small square sink with drainer. The galley contains work surfaces and cupboards. There is one cupboard free for you to place food items along with an undercounter fridge with a small freezer section at the top. The galley comes equipped with:
• Frying pan
• Saucepans
• Glass tumblers, wine glasses, beer glasses & pewter tankards
• Cutlery
• Cooking utensils
• Electric kettle, hob kettle & a Cafetiere
• Toaster
• Mugs
• Melamine dinner plates, side plates and bowls
• Baking trays & roasting tin
• Hand towel & tea towel

The Shower room
Next to the bedroom is a small shower room. This has recently been renovated and has a **basic shower with shower curtain and also has a chemical cassette toilet on board (this is cleaned and sanitised by us at the end of your stay, or at intervals if you are staying more than a few days). The following items are provided for you:
• Hand soap
• hair and body wash
• toilet rolls
• bath towels & hand towel

** Boats have a finite capacity for water heating at any one time. Therefore, showers are designed for a quick wash, rather than a long hot shower, otherwise you may find the water starts to run cool . If you have long hair you may find you need to wash it separately to having a shower.

The Bedroom
The cabin style bedroom has a 4 foot small double bed and is located in the stern of the boat. The room has windows either side, one looking over the marina and the other over the grass seating area outside. It has a small wardrobe with shelf and hanging space for 3 people people. There is also a hair dryer kept inside the wardrobe.

Outdoor space
In addition to the boat we also have outdoor spaces both have views across the Thames and over the rest of the marina. The first is a small seating area on the bow of the boat, very useful in the summer months to sit and drink coffee. Off the boat there is a grass area. In the summer we provide a table and chairs for you to eat al fresco or to watch the sunset with your favourite tipple. We also have outdoor games, such as Pétanque, giant dominos and quoits. There is always plenty of wildlife around too, and we regularly see geese, swans, and kingfishers, just to name a few.

If you are looking for a quiet romantic getaway with evenings snuggled up in front of the fire, or a unique stay with good friends, or just as a base to explore the countryside we may just be what you are looking for.

* Potential for noise:
Lechlade Music Festival is held every year over the last bank holiday in May. The festival is held in the fields opposite the boat. The music can be quite loud and can be heard on the marina. Please bear this in mind when booking.

Lechlade, as the crow flies, is also very close to the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) held in Fairford in mid July. You may relish the thought of watching the air displays overhead, but again they can be noisy.

We suggest that if you are considering booking with us around those times, and you would like a quiet stay, that you contact us to find out the exact dates for those events.

** The sofa bed will be equipped with a sleeping bag and pillow for a third person.

***Extra coal may be purchased from us, see the house rules for details.

Servicios y zonas comunes
You have access to all of the boat except the boatman's cabin in the stern. The boatman's cabin can be used for emergency exit only.

Otros aspectos destacables
Boat size
Our boat is an English narrowboat, as the name suggests the boat is quite small in size the width is 6ft 10 inches (approximately 2.08 metres). The height is 6ft (approximately 1.82 metres).

Access to the boat
You should be aware that to access the boat you need to climb some steep steps over a bridge and walk along the river bank a short distance. Therefore, if it is wet we advise you to wear sturdy flat shoes, boots or trainers. to go to and from the boat. Because the river bank and be muddy we would kindly ask that guests remove their shoes on entering the boat.

There is a solar light by the door of the boat, but at night the access along the bank is not lit. We advise that you bring a torch with you. We do have some you can borrow if you arrive without one.

Availability of hot water
Please remember that you are staying on a boat, amenities like the shower are fed from a fixed capacity tank. Therefore, the availability of hot water at any one time is limited. Think quick shower off, and wash hair separately rather than long hot shower.

Keys to the marina gates
The marina has gated access. If you should need to go out in your car whilst with us we can give you a key to let yourself back in to the marina. IN order to have the key we will require a deposit of £30 IN CASH on arrival, which we will refund on the safe return of the key to us at the end of your stay.

Pets
We will accept well behaved pets by arrangement. However, there is a one off cleaning charge of £10 payable on arrival. This is to facilitate anyone with pet allergies that may follow you.

Potential for noise
Lechlade Music Festival is held every year over the last bank holiday in May. The festival is held in the fields opposite the boat. The music can be quite loud and can be heard on the marina. Please bear this in mind when booking.

Lechlade is a lovely Cotswold stone market town that has a great community feel to it. We have plenty of things to see and do for everyone within Lechlade and the surrounding area.

If you love the water, then there are plenty of activities in and around the area from boats, to river walks. Why not walk down to St John's lock and watch the boats coming up or downstream.

Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties are steeped in history, and we are close to some wonderful churches, historic houses and monuments. The Roman town of Cirencester, the city of Oxford, and Cheltenham Spa are within 30 miles of the marina. In addition, there are many other old Cotswold towns and villages to visit.

If you are an avid Christmas market goer, then there are several within reach from Lechlade. The Christmas markets at Cirencester, Cheltenham, Gloucester Quays, Oxford, and Blenheim Palace are all within a 1 hour driving distance from Lechlade. Bath Christmas market is slightly further afield at 1hr 30 minutes, it is quite a large market and well worth the visit as a day trip.

In December many places in the Cotswolds have an evening of celebrations with a Christmas lights turn on, including Lechlade. See the 'Christmas in Lechlade' guidebook for more details about staying on our boat during the festive season..

Earlier in the year we are ideally placed for both the Lechlade Music Festival and Troutfest, the IAT Fairford Air Tattoo and slightly further afield, Cheltenham Festival and the New Years Day races also at Cheltenham. Later in the year it is not far to the Music and Fireworks held at the Defence Academy Shrivenham, we are close to Fairford and Faringdon fireworks displays.
