Named in The Times Top 50 Cottages and No 1 in their Top 10 Quirky Cottages & Beach Houses (2013)
"Kids will love sleeping in this 1950’s pleasure cruiser on the Cardigan Coast. The snug wood-panelled interior is a delight with padded seating (which converts to two single beds for children). A double bed in the front of the boat has a glass dome for stargazing. Cook, eat and wash in a neighbouring building." Liz Bird for The Times
