Gorgeous, clean Narrow Boat on River Ouse
Lovely birthday escape on Narrow Boat Puzzle. Tranquil setting on River. All you could need to self cater. Easy access to town and amenities. Special mention to Garf who was super friendly and helpful in our welcome.

excellent little escape away
This was our first trip away in well over a year - and our first ever stay on a boat. We were greeted with a lovely, friendly welcome. The narrow boat was very clean, tidy and we slept soundly. The boat can get rather warm when thendoors and windows are closed but the fan was enough to keep us cool through the night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly reccommend others to stay. It would be worth noting that we had limited access to 4g whilst onboard the boat but this is what we experienced in Ely over all that signal was poor - however this didnt cause us too much bother as the point of being away was to escape from our emails for a while!

So much fun staying on a boat! Made the weekend. So central for Ely and surrounding areas. Great welcome and tips on local eateries.
