Ken and Maggie really have something special here. Words can't describe how amazing houseboat Till is. Spotlessly clean and all home comforts thought of, the welcome hamper was a really special touch. Our whole family loved every minute and can't wait to return.
Thanks so much for having us x
It has Been a delight to have hosted Pauline and family. They have really looked after the Houseboat, and from their review they have enjoyed their time aboard.
The Houseboat has been left lovely and clean on departure.
We highly recommend Pauline to our HomeAway firends.
We hope to see Pauline back aboard soon
Fantastic cozy houseboat
We had a great 3 day stay on MV Till. It’s location is perfect for exploring York on foot and it is wonderfully comfortable to come back to after a day’s sightseeing. The boat has everything you could wish for including a generous welcome pack.
The check in process was very straightforward despite us arriving late due to traffic, and Maggie was there as we arrived to give us the parking permit and show us round.
The local neighbourhood was really lovely and we made use of the fish and chip shop and the Pig and Pastry for an amazing breakfast!
Wow wow wow

Lovely stay on the Ouse River
The location of this boat is ideal for seeing York. It is an easy walk to center city. The boat is very well appointed with modern eat-in kitchen and bath with tub and shower. Plus supplied with all items needed for cooking/dining. Definitely felt as comfortable as home.
After a big day of sightseeing, it was wonderful to return to the comfort of the boat, have a snack, watch the tourist boats go by, play cards, watch sky cable tv, have a quiet nights sleep. Three bedrooms: one with double bed/queen size bed, one with two twin beds, and the third with a wedge shaped bed tucked into the front of the boat. Highly recommend MV Till.
Wonderful stay on beautiful houseboat
We had a great two night stay on this houseboat in July 2019. There was plenty of space for all five of us. The owners had thought of everything and included special touches for our arrival including a food basket and bottle of bubbly. This houseboat is a very short walk to the Shambles, and other tourist areas. Would definitely recommend this to everyone!
Thank for your excellent review
40th Birthday treat
I cannot rate this accommodation high enough, we debated a length where to stay for my nieces 40th birthday (4 of us) then found this gem. It was such a wonderful experience that we will treasure and hope to return again next year. My advice to anyone thinking of booking, don't hesitate to book it you will not regret staying at such a great place. Maggie was super helpful as was Ken regarding our arrival/departure etc.
