Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Pets welcome

Samuel James is a 63ft all steel narrowboat built on a hull supplied by Colecraft and will house up to seven people in comfortable accommodation. The spacious fore cabin gives excellent views over the bow from the dining area and lounge, which has two large settees and a gateleg table.

An excellently equipped and roomy galley has a full size oven with four burner hob and grill, refrigerator with freezer compartment and sink and drainer. Mealtimes are easily catered for with plenty of worktops and storage and a roof hatch opens for extra ventilation.

A door leads through to a separate cabin with side hatch, which houses a permanent double bed, large wardrobe, dressing table and en suite bathroom with a bath, shower, vanity basin and freshwater flushing toilet.

The rear bunks

Further along, the next cabin has a single bed with facilities to fit a bunk above if required. There is also a large wardrobe, with shelves, drawers and a vanity unit as well as access to the second toilet and a basin. In the rear cabin are a further two single beds, with a facility for an extra full size bunk if required, with two more large wardrobes, an airing cupboard and wet locker before steps leading up to the rear deck.

As expected Samuel James is carpeted and centrally heated throughout, with a 240 volt electric supply through standard domestic three pin sockets.

"Looked forward to a weeek end afloat rather than adrift"

This trip was the forth trip the group had with `Kates Boats` (the second on Samuel James)and sadly will be our last.We arrived on Friday (4th april) The group had 2 new guests for a long w end .We go… More

I'm sorry that the trip didn't work out for you this time. It is a shame that you told the send out staff that you were going to Warwick (a normal weekend trip) rather than aiming for the Tom of the Woods which is a good 4 days travel there and back.

Unfortunately breakdowns do happen, even with the best maintained boats. Samuel James is an older boat, with a three star rating, which is reflected in the price.

The rust problem with the water does occur if the water tank is not filled daily as we ask in our briefing, however with your planned schedule I doubt if there was any time available to keep the water tank filled. Throughout the two visits by the mechanic and the several emails since this is the first mention that you have made of a smelly toilet.
I am unsure who you spoke to on Sunday who offered compensation, because the marina is actually closed and not staffed.

Again my apologies that the holiday failed to live up to your expectations.
