Stay on a boat in Bath, UK

2 luxurious wide beam canal boats for bed and breakfast in Bath, or for self-driving cruising holidays. Dogs welcome.

Bed and Breakfast in Bath, on a Luxurious Wide beam Canal Boat.

The Cru Houseboats have two luxurious wide beam canal boats, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. The boats are moored just a fifteen-minute walk from the centre of the World Heritage City of Bath. Grand Cru sleeps six: two double bedrooms and two single sofa beds in the living area. Premier Cru also sleeps six: one large double bedroom, a separate room with two single beds and two single sofa beds in the living area. Grand Cru has a shower, whereas Premier Cru has a roll top bath.


Premier Cru has one double room, one room with two single beds and two single sofa beds in the living area. The canal boats are ten foot wide opposed to a narrowboat which is six foot ten inches wide. There is more interior space in Grand Cru and Premier Cru than a 68ft narrowboat. You will find the boats provide a level of decor, spaciousness and comfort more associated with a floating cottage. Ideal for a family canal boat holiday.


The boats have full gas central heating and a wood-burning stove, the boats are very warm and cosy when it’s cold outside.

Other features include: Fully fitted kitchen where you can cook your own food, 240-volt electrical system, Freeview TV, DVD/CD player, 300watt surround sound system with an iPod/phone port. Grand Cru has a shower and Premier Cru has a roll top bath.

If required a car will collect/return you from Bath Railway Station, free parking is also available.

Check in times Friday, Sunday or Tuesday from 4.00pm. Check out times Sun, Tues and Thursday at 4.00 pm.

The Area

During your stay in Bath you will be able to enjoy: The Roman Baths and Pump Room, The Thermae Bath Spa, The Theatre Royal, The Jane Austen Centre, Bath Abbey, The Herschel Museum of Astronomy and the very entertaining Bizarre Bath Comedy walk. Longleat Safari and Adventure Park and Wookey Hole Caves are only 35 minutes away. An hour’s drive away is the very interesting Hayes Motor Museum and the somewhat disappointing Stonehenge.

What's special about this boat

Steeped in history and beautiful scenery, its impossible to imagine anything that isn't special about Bath.
