For a memorable stay, for a hen weekend, large party or family stay then our new addition to our fleet, the " QUEEN OF HEARTS " will allow you and your guests, friends , hens to stay all together on the same boat. This is one of the few boats on the canal that offers you exclusive 12 person accommodation.

The Queen of Hearts is our only boat that is designed to stylishly sleep 12 people for two or three nights or more in total luxury. It is very popular with hirers who would like to spend a longer day on the canal, ideal for a weekend or just a couple of days. It sleeps twelve with a mixture of single, double and bunk beds.

On arrival you will find a fitted out painted wood interior, two bathrooms with toilet, with a hot/cold shower, a high gloss black contemporary kitchen with oven, hob, two fridges/ freezer, utensils and a double dinette to seat two lots of six. This table converts into a double bed when required allowing you to choose between two single beds or a double bed. There are two 19 " televisions / DVD for further entertainment.

There is an ipod / ipad / iphone docking station that will charge your media and with the speakers you can relax and listen to your choice of music. For your own security, there is a coded safe on board to store your valuables. The rear of the boat has a cruiser stern which is larger than more traditional boats allowing more open space. Access on and off the boat is easier.

The " Queen of Hearts " is purpose built, has recently been completely refurbished and designed with your comfort and safety in mind. The front deck has bench seats for warm days, central heating for those cooler ones as well as hot and cold running water and two fresh water flushing toilets. Towels, sheets, duvets & pillows are provided to compliment your comfort.

You are welcome to bring your own food and drink or you can eat out at various pubs, cafes, and restaurants you'll find nearby. We are situated around 15 minutes from the centre high street where there are many more pubs & restaurants. Alternatively, there is a Tesco Express nearby and you can cook yourself a gastronomic delight.

For the time being, you can book your overnight stay with or without breakfast food supplied for you to cook breakfast. This includes eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, bread, milk, orange juice, cereal, tea, coffee and sugar.

.Unfortunately, we do not allow dogs on the Queen of Hearts.

This boat is ideal for Hen Parties looking for a base near the heart of the city. We will welcome you onboard Friday afternoon and show you the boat. Once you're all aboard , we will cruise you a short distance along the canal and moor you securely. Then you have the whole weekend to entertain yourselves with the many restaurants, bars & clubs in the evening, During the day, you can visit Bath, the many shops, indulge in the thermae spa and take part in many local activities.
