Tregulland & Co have just announced the addition of Blackbird to its holiday accommodation portfolio, a luxury narrowboat ready for cosy off-grid escapes, the ideal minimoon choice. Sleek and black on the outside and bright and white on the inside, this luxury floating suite is located at the far end of a privately owned, three-acre freshwater lake in North Devon. The backdrop of mature oak and beech ensures total privacy for couples looking to escape and while there are a couple of other boats moored on the large land-locked lake, each one is positioned to ensure a fully private outlook, tucked out of view of neighbours.
Blackbird is the first of a duo which will be offered at this location by Tregulland & Co.It started life as a traditional canal boat and has been refitted to offer an open-plan living space ideal for two people with an ensuite shower room as well as it's very own bankside boudoir bathhouse complete with an elegant roll-top bath positioned to look out across the lake, a love seat and a dressing table. The internal space features white-washed timber cladding, bespoke sofa cushions, a wood burner for chillier evenings, reclaimed flooring and a slate kitchen worktop. There's also a king-size bed and an adjacent shower room and toilet with REN products.
There are 20 acres of newly planted woodland for guests to explore on foot and plenty of wildlife to see. During the summer months, wildflowers flourish attracting clouds of butterflies and dragonflies and binoculars are provided for wildlife watching. It's a five-minute drive into Holsworthy, a lively town hosting the weekly farmers' market known for its local beef, cream teas, ice cream and cider, and just 20 minutes from the coast for clifftop walks and surfing at the stunning National Trust Sandymouth beach in Bude or Widemouth Bay Beach.
With limited mobile reception and no internet provided, guests are encouraged to switch off and enjoy the surroundings. There's a portable music player with CD and radio player and Bluetooth.
Three-night stays on the weekend during low season start from £480, four-night midweek stays from £400 and seven-night stays from £1300.
