Now it's another type of floating home

Published: Monday, 31 July 2023

 WE ARE all aware that narrowboats are the floating homes of many, but now there is another variety—floating cabins.

This is for want of another word, so as to not get confused, but are described by the vendors as floating homes, as are narrowboats.

Floating homesSo whether you're looking for a new permanent home or a home away from home, there is a range of options available so, it is stated, you can find the perfect waterside retreat to suit you.

Fully furnished

The luxury floating homes we are told by Prestige come fully furnished with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fitted kitchen with quality appliances. They also include fixed line copper broadband, a dedicated parking space, access to a secure cycle rack, and the potential to moor a small craft next to the home.

They are designed to be the perfect permanent home on the water, available at both Sawley and Priory marinas, being informed:

''Our floating homes by Waterlodge UK are available in a range of sizes and can make the perfect holiday home or permanent home. Hand built in the UK, the lodges pair contemporary design and optimal use of space to create a flexible, luxury craft for modern lifestyles.


From the bijou Waterlodge Oasis One—the perfect choice for couples looking to spend time alone on the water to the spacious Waterlodge Oasis Six ideal for families and waterlodgers wanting to welcome friends on board their boat.
