Moonraker

We have lovingly restored the two narrowboats trying to keep their original features whilst making them comfortable.

They are very much situated in the corner of a field of a working farm, so I make no apologies if you are wakened by the farmer shifting sheep at 6am!  Or if the combine is still going at 10pm, most of the noise and action happens in the farm steading which is half a mile away.

On the farm we grow cereals, make silage, keep sheep, cattle and pigs, alongside 14 windmills.  There is a gravel road available to holidaymakers, you are welcome to take a picnic to the top of the hill and enjoy the even better views out to sea and over to the Cheviots.

No vehicles are allowed beyond the canal boats but pushbikes are, we don’t recommend  road bikes.  Please stick to the roads and do not disturb the crops, cattle and sheep grazing in the fields either side.

Moonraker is the ideal getaway Glamping to help you unwind and relax.  dine in or out – there is everything you would need in the boat to cook a delicious supper after a day spent enjoying Northumberland or you can light the fire pit and BBQ and watch the sunset and stargaze in the dark skies whilst toasting marshmallows.

Equally amazing is the sun rising from the East over the sea with Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance and the sounds of birdlife keeping you company.

The shower, toilet and wash hand basin are all in the bow of the boat with view to Holy Island whilst you shower, there is a heated towel rail also.

Come in the winter time to really enjoy the dark skies and remember to switch the electric blanket on for when you crawl into bed in the early hours.  There are also two electric heaters in Moonraker.
