Stay on a boat in Loughborough, United Kingdom

Sea Melody is a 33foot Bates Star craft from 1957. She is made out of English oak, teak and mahogany. She is one of only thirty five ever made, so you are renting a small piece of British maritime history. Everything onboard is original and I want to keep it that way, so you will have that retro and also a nostalgic feeling when on board. There are two cabins one small double and 2 singles.Galley,bathroom with a simple shower. The main living area is spacious and light. You have the option of having two sofas or two dining areas. There is s sun roof that slides back making it ideal for that early evening glass of wine.


Sea Melody has 2 cabins one a small double in the stern and a twin in the bow. The galley and bathroom are also towards the back end of the boat. Every room can be closed off from the other. The main living area cockpit is in the middle of the boat. With a sun roof that slides back and two side doors. There is a sofa on one side and dinning area on the other.


The marina has its own restaurant and bar with a large terrace overlooking the water. Locally sourced food with a comprehensive menu make it a great place to eat. Sea Melody’s guests get 10 percent discount on food and drinks. Other facilities are toilet/shower blocks ,launderette, parking. There are also second hand books available in the laundry to read. Free WiFi in the bar area.

What's special about this boat

I have lived on the marina for 5 years now and I enjoy every day that I am there. I hope that by renting Sea Melody you will also be able to experience some of what we feel when living on a boat in Pillings lock. Not to mention the fact that you are staying in a rather unique boat
