The Boathouse

Life afloat has never been this good

All aboard The Boathouse, a sophisticated barge in the heart of West London. Made.com designed Scandinavian-inspired interiors will have you smiling from the elegant, chic light fixtures to the luxuriously spacious and surprising galley, equipped with a dine-in bar. But it’s all about the bathrooms. No squeezing into small spaces here, with high ceilings and elegant, contemporary white metro tiles a striking contrast to matt-black fixtures. Portholes and other nautical ephemera throughout nod to the history of the vessel and this distinct home-away-from-home. You might even want to go out and purchase a yacht after a weekend here. Life afloat has never been this good. And never this zen with onboard yoga retreats available.

Luxurious interiors of The Boathouse

Take your pick of equally inspired and off-the-beaten path amenities like two beach cruisers outfitted with a three-bottle leather wine carrier for romantic picnics in nearby Kew Gardens. After a champagne reception, your boat captain for the day will take you on a breathtaking sail down the historic river Thames. But perhaps you prefer to hop into your romantic wooden dinghy and row away for the day. After a day of touring the city, your private chef greets you with all your favourite dishes and wine pairings. boathouselondon.co.uk ◼
