Blackbird - The Boat

Deluxe off grid 'boat-hole' for two with luxurious boathouse boudoir.

This luxury floating suite is located on a freshwater lake in North Devon and offers our signature interiors in the form of a luxury repurposed narrowboat. 

Blackbird started life as a traditional canal boat and has been totally refitted to offer an open plan living space perfect for two with ensuite shower room, as well as its very own cool bankside ‘boudoir bathhouse’ with elegant roll top bath.

Located at the far end of a privately owned three acre lake teeming with fish and other wildlife, the backdrop of mature oak and beech ensures total privacy for couples looking to escape off grid to this haven of tranquillity rocked to sleep by the gentle swell of Blackbird on the water.

While there are a couple of other boats moored on the large landlocked lake, each boat is positioned to ensure a totally private outlook, tucked out of view of neighbours. Blackbird is the first of a duo which will be offered at this location by Tregulland & Co.

On land there are 20 acres of newly planted woodland to explore on foot and lots of wildlife to look out for. Take a walk, dangle a line in the water to catch a rainbow trout for supper, or just sit back and relax and listen to the birdsong. During the summer months wildflowers flourish attracting clouds of butterflies and dragonflies: Simply bliss.
