Perfectly positioned just half an hour away from bustling Cambridge, Glamping Boatshack offers all the fun and adventure of life on the open waves, with no seasickness to worry about.

Positioned in private forest land that overlooks the Fens, you’ll marvel at the wide open, natural scenery that surrounds you.  But you’ll also gaze in wonder at the loving attention to detail that has gone into the conversion of this stunning vessel, originally constructed in 1945.

An ideal couples’ retreat-with-a-difference, the Boatshack comes equipped with oak beams and larch planking for an historic maritime feel.  There’s also a spectacular marine-style door, engineered by the builders who worked on ‘Boaty McBoatface’ herself.

Aboard the vessel, you’ll discover a warming wood-burning stove, and snuggly day benches that cleverly become two singles or a kingsize double at night.  Generous kitchen and bathroom facilities are housed in an adjoining space, making for the perfect nautical retreat. Ahoy there!
