If there is anything you need or require please contact us and we will assist you. All we ask of you in return, is that you treat the houseboat with the care you would give to your own home and you leave it as you found it..

STRICTLY NO SMOKING. We are pleased to provide a non-smoking policy on the houseboat. In order to ensure the houseboat is always clean and fresh for our guests, please note it is a condition of your rental contract that there is no smoking in the houseboat, however we permit smoking on the decks and the moorings . Please respect this policy . Thank you. PARKING. There is parking for one car, which is very good for a York city centre property. There are no more spaces or permits for any more than one car. Please park in the area reserved for R32 permit holders. Ken or Maggie will give you the permits on your arrival. These need to be returned when you leave for our next guests. If your party has a third car, you will find on-street parking ,which is not in a permit controlled area, then you will need to drive about a mile along Bishopthorpe Road away from York centre to find a space.. CENTRAL HEATING. The houseboat has central heating throughout, to ensure that you are snug and warm even in inclement weather. The heating is controlled by the thermostat on the boiler located in the wheelhouse. The radiators have individual thermostats, which you adjust for individual room temperatures. . LAUNDRY. There is an automatic washing machine and dryer by the side of the stairway. We have left the instruction books for you to operate this machine. We do not provide washing machine cleaning products, as customers requirements and hygiene requirements vary so much... BATHROOM. The bathroom has full size bath and an electric shower. The toilet uses a macerator (electric pump), apart from toilet paper please DO NOT flush any sanitary products or any other wrapping papers or wet wipes down the toilet. This will block and damage the macerator. This results in no WC facilities being available until we can fix the problem. TELEVISION.

About the neighbourhood
Just two hours north of London by rail, the city of York holds 1900 years' worth of history in its ancient walls. The Romans built the city in 71 AD, and the Vikings captured it in 866 AD. Stop by the Yorkshire Museum and Gardens for a look at what the Roman and Vikings left behind (they must have packed light when they left). From there, move on to the York Castle Museum for a not-so-quick overview of the most recent 400 years
Getting around
We are located a five minute walk from the center of the city centre, close to the Jorvik Viking Centre, The Eye of York, and 400 metres from the Historic City Walls. We are so close to the city center a taxi drive would be pointless. Located to minutes from the famous ' Bishopthorpe Road' shopping area, which is brimming with food shops, cafes, Food outlets as well as pubs, so theres no need to worry about food or drinks on your arrival, its all on your doorstep.
