A warm, friendly welcome

See on board the houseboat, visit the touring shop and relax on the riverside.

We look forward to welcoming visitors in 2018, as we celebrate ninety years since the rebuilding of a truly unique vessel.

Required: A 'Courtier' Stove for Heather



Heather is in the process of being conserved and restored in an effort to complete the authentic appearance of the houseboat. An important feature of the cabin was a multi~fuel stove.

We have been searching endlessly for a 1920's ~ 1940's example of the original enamel glazed 'Courtier' stove, made by Mitchell Russell & Co in Bonnybridge, Scotland.

Has anyone knowledge of where we can obtain a free~standing version of a Courtier stove, preferably finished in white glazed enamel? This version was designed to stand in a centre of a room, instead of being set into a fireplace. There are four enamelled sides as opposed to a cast iron rear section.

Please contact us.
