About Us

At The Boatyard in Bishopthorpe on the outskirts of York, we offer an enchanting array of unique stays, each tailored to make your visit truly unforgettable.

Our unique stays offer a blend of comfort and charm, ensuring a restful retreat after a day of exploration. Whether you choose to stay in one of our cosy cabins, or our converted barge ‘The Ark’, for larger parties, each accommodation is thoughtfully appointed to provide the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. Drift off to sleep amidst the gentle lull of the river, creating memories that last a lifetime.

Our largest accommodation is The Ark. In 2008 we converted the Nottingham Trader, a hull previously used for dredging the river, into a spacious environment perfect for a weekend break for friends and family. The Ark sleeps 7 comfortably and there is ample space for cots allowing you and your friends and family to bask in nature whilst staying upon the water.

Our range of shepherd's huts and cabins come ready for you to hop straight into bed after a long day. Sheets, towels, tea & coffee facilities, TV, heating and board games all included, and they all have a private deck with table and chairs to enjoy a morning cup of tea or an evening bottle of fizz. With feather duvet and the heating on full, this is the perfect place for a last-minute break!
