Static Accommodation

Blossom is now offering static Winter breaks based in the Tewitfield Marina. This is your opportunity to experience sleeping aboard a narrowboat with the added convenience of permanent electricity and the friendly atmosphere of the marina and the Longlands Hotel.

Tewitfield Marina is situated on the outskirts of Carnforth and only a stones throw away from the award winning Lake District.

Not only are you experiencing a boat holiday with all the beautiful views from the bow doors but you also have the advantage of your own car parked close by, so areas which would ordinarily be out of reach are now waiting to be explored.

From artisan crafts to spectacular walks, Cumbria has it all!

From the doorstep of the boat you have beautiful walks like Warton Crag, the locks of the Northern Reaches of the Lancaster canal, Leighton Moss where you can see the marvels of the annual starling murmuration, which take place between October-March, and many more amazing places to visit!

If exploring the Lakes is what you’re wanting, you are only a short drive away from everything that there is to offer…

Knock on the door of Beatrix Potter’s home and view the world from her little cottage, visit the many local coffee shops for amazing cake or gently cruise the stunning Lake Windermere. This tranquil location has so much to offer…


Zipline over the lakes, quad bike through the mud, Go ape through the canopy through the trees, hike to the top of the world or parachute from the top of the world!! Once you’re completely exhausted after a thrill seeking day, return back to the boat to enjoy a quiet drink/meal at the Longlands Hotel and walk back to the boat where you can relax in front of the log burner and talk about the amazing memories you have just made!
