Crafty Boaters Static Narrowboat Accommodation & Original Artwork Gifts 

Martin and Sarah Lee, are our Crafty Boaters, they live at the top of the navigable River Thames in Lechlade-on-Thames.
Currently, they have three boats.
Their home is a 55ft Dutch Barge called Skûtsje.
They also have a 50ft narrowboat called Lark Rise III, and a 35ft Dutch barge that is currently being renovated called Aaltje.
They offer static boat accommodation at the top of the River Thames, and create and sell their own original artwork, hence the name Crafty Boaters.

Static Boat Accommodation

The boats are moored in the quiet surroundings of Lechlade Marina in Lechlade-on-Thames.
Their narrowboat, Lark Rise III has everything to offer from cosy nights in by the stove to exploring the great outdoors.

This lovely boat is available from a minimum of 2 nights up to a maximum of 28 nights. The boat is an ideal place to start if you have been thinking of a narrowboat holiday, but are not confident to take a boat out yourself. Or perhaps you are thinking about living on a narrowboat but would like to try it out first. Whatever your reasons for wanting a narrowboat stay, Lark Rise III is in an ideal position with views of the River Thames.

You can find out more about their static narrowboat accommodation and download a brochure from their website.


The second part of our business is their artwork. They create hand-cast and hand-painted ceramic items, that are for sale online.
In 2021 they will be at a number of local craft markets.
