The Liverpool boat
Hello and welcome. I’m Peter Boyles. My family and I have been providing short term holiday accommodation since 2012.
Starting with a two-bed apartment in the Alps, we quickly caught the hosting bug! Being able to share our holiday home with others and for them to be able to experience what we loved was addictive.
The one-bed apartment in The Netherlands (where we were living) that we owned was let out long-term. Once the tenants moved out, we renovated the apartment specifically for short term rentals. However, our second set of guests loved it so much that they stayed for over a year!
We then decided buy a larger property for us and others to use. Selling both apartments allowed us to buy a five-bed chalet in the most beautiful alpine setting. It was magical however it proved to be very difficult to manage the rentals long distance.
Once our daughter was born, we decided to move back to the UK. We sold the chalet to put the money into creating a holiday let business in England where we can be local and more hands-on. Months were spent creating a fabulous family-friendly home for those visiting to enjoy.
We look forward to welcoming you on board!

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE – COVID-19
Rest assured that we are doing everything the UK government requires to keep us all safe and well during this time. We only use professional cleaners who clean and disinfect the boat between guests.
We do meet you personally upon arrival to show you around the boat and answer any questions but this is done as socially-distanced as possible. Let us know if you have any questions.
We will provide a 100% refund or the option of rebooking your holiday should there be a National Lockdown or Tier restrictions that do not permit you to travel to Liverpool.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds for cancellations due to illness, or any of your party having to self-isolate. We highly recommend that you purchase holiday insurance.
Your oasis in Liverpool
Discover The Liverpool Boat
The Liverpool Boat is a 60×10 wide-beam canal boat in the heart of Liverpool. There are water views from every window! We built The Liverpool Boat in 2019 and have created a family and pet-friendly open-plan space.
With two bedrooms the boat is perfect for a family of four people, two adults and two school aged children. There is a deluxe pull out bed in the living area, which can sleep an additional two people by prior agreement with us. Along with the bathroom, there is an open-plan living and kitchen area. The boat is filled with light from all the windows on both sides of the boat along with the skylight and hatch over the kitchen sink.
Come and experience the calm and quiet in the midst of Liverpool’s historic waterfront area. We offer free parking for one car and everything is within walking distance from the marina. Enjoy Liverpool while staying on board The Liverpool Boat.
