Hello A few questions As it's a small space and your sharing it with other guests do you still feel you have privacy. How warm will it be in the winter months?
Definitely. Very private with sound proof rooms. Quaint place will definitely stay again.

"all rooms are fantastic but for a real romantic touch opt for the stern room with the bath in the bedroom."
"The stern cabin has a sit bath, other rooms have showers"
"Cabin with the bath has the least space. All cabins are compact but well equipped."
"Ask for riverside cabin - nicer views thro' portholes."
"Discuss with Stuart and ask whether he has a cabin with a river view."
US$112 - US$177 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
