The Ark


Welcome to the unique experience of staying in our luxurious modern houseboat on the banks of the River Ouse. For a quirky, different weekend city break our boat is ideally situated close to York City Centre overlooking the magnificent Archbishop’s Palace in Bishopthorpe.

York Houseboat is a rare and original place to stay, rather like a floating hotel, and makes for an unusual weekend away staying in the beautiful interior designed modern rooms with en suite bathroom, with cosy, warm and supremely comfortable beds.

There are 2 huge sun decks for sunbathing and to relax enjoying the boats sailing by, and a large BBQ for an al fresco dining experience.

The countryside around the boat is rich in wildlife, it is a twitchers paradise and an anglers delight, boasting excellent local spots for fishing.

For all celebrations, birthday parties, hen or stag nights, weddings and happy holidays it is a unique venue offering marvellous photographic opportunities, it sleeps up to 10 people in complete comfort, yet it is still very close to York City Centre.

If you're on coming to York on business, or are a contractor, this is a fabulous place to stay if you want something a bit different for a meeting, a conference or are attending an event at York University. And if you're coming to York Races you'll be uniquely placed with easy access to York Racecourse mere minutes away.

Additionally why not hire our motorboat to explore the sights of York, including the Minster, the National Railway Museum, the Shambles, theatre, cinema, York Barbican, historic pubs and clubs, restaurants and the City Walls.
