Plan for at least 5 days here. Hire a boat from the ferry office, go fishing, eat at Ebor and enjoy the Ark. The place is adjacent to a laundrette, a small grocery store and lots of delivery options plus a fully equipped kitchen for those who like to cook. Loved the place!

He is one lovely and kind host. The house boat is fabulous and better than the pics. Easy access to the city and lovely pubs and restaurant around. The house has everything one needs and stay is awesome. I would love to stay with Jelly again.
