A stylish, sumptuous wide-beam houseboat with a furnished al fresco deck, perfectly located on the historic Limehouse Basin for an activity-packed, adults-only stay in London.
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

Perfect for couples and friends in need of a unique break, Lulubelle is a luxurious houseboat that sleeps up to four adults in supreme nautical comfort.

You’ll find the wide-beam barge in prime position on the shimmering Limehouse Basin, which was formerly known as the Regent’s Canal Dock, and is perfectly located for you to enjoy the bright lights of London!

Not that you’ll feel like leaving once you’ve stepped aboard. You’ll be personally welcomed on arrival and given a full tour of your new holiday surroundings, which include all the amenities you could want.

Along with a fresh, laid-back colour palette of blues, whites, and neutrals are sleek high-end appliances. There’s a huge Smart TV and a gorgeous fireplace in the living space and underfloor heating in the gleaming bathroom, which boasts a full-sized bath, a separate walk-in shower, and indulgent toiletries.

Break bread and drink chilled glasses of wine – you’ll have a dedicated wine fridge, after all! – on plush chairs around the large table… or take your meals out to the scenic al fresco deck, with its dedicated dining space and comfy sofa, instead.

There’s a well-equipped kitchen to cook those meals in, too; complete with a full-sized oven and four-burner hob (those holiday essentials, a dishwasher and a microwave, are also on hand!)

When it’s finally time to turn in, simply claim your favourite of two elegant bedrooms: a kingsize and a double, both with luxuriously-dressed beds and plenty of storage space.
