Hello and welcome!

You have come to home page for The Narrowboat Experience. We are Anna and Kath, two wives, who with our two cats Munchkin and Alice, live on our 57ft Narrowboat.

Living on a narrowboat

Cats on the narrowboatWe moved on board our first narrowboat in October 2016 – much to the disgust of the two most spoilt cats in the world. Saying that, they are happy to be wherever we are. This includes them chasing us down the street or towpath shouting when we go out without them!

So far, we all love living on a narrowboat. We have no plans to move back to a more traditional land based accommodation any time soon. In April 2018 we left our residential mooring to become continuous cruisers. It took us two years to prepare for this adventure but so far we are loving the new lifestyle!

We have set up this web page for a few reasons. Firstly, we wanted a way to track our experiences and to share things with you that we think might be useful. Also, we hope to entertain while we are at it. Be it our adventures cruising, renovation work or exploring areas we visit.

We document most things on our YouTube Channel – The Narrowboat Experience. We release weekly vlogs all about our lives living on a narrowboat. The videos cover DIY jobs, cruising the canal or even helpful tips and advice.

Thanks for following us on our exciting journey. We very much appreciate the continued support and all the comments on the videos (and on the blog).

You can follow us on other social media platforms too. There are links at the top and bottom of the page to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
