Property Overview

Newly converted, the 85ft Nottingham Trader boasts a spacious 7 berth, open plan kitchen/living area and large sundeck with views of the Archbishop's palace. Comes with day boat.

Built in 1953, the Nottingham Trader was a steel lighter (barge without engine), and once a familiar site on the waters of the Humber and the River Trent. She was built by Dunstan's of Thorn. She has since been converted into a luxury static house barge.

Bishopthorpe is conveniently located just two miles from York city centre. From the owners site you can follow the riverside path right into the heart of York. This site is located close to many cycle paths, making the Nottingham Trader a prime location for those who want to explore the historic city as well as the local countryside. We are just 0.5 miles from the A64, making her location perfect as your gateway to Yorkshire.

A 5 minute walk will bring you to Bishopthorpe, a favourite destination for travellers and race-goers as it has been for centuries. Although the village has grown in recent years, its character is still strong, and the old Main Street, with its Post Office, butchers, three pubs, Co-op and cottages, has hardly changed at all. Bishopthorpe is home to the grand Archbishop's palace, which can be seen from the sun deck.
