“Sonia – The boat by the sea” is a decommissioned 1950’s pleasure cruiser, moored in a field near Llangrannog beach, with a sea view.
“Sonia” is small but perfectly formed: the portholes have been polished up; the woodwork – walls and floors – painted a tasteful grey; red cushions made from a vintage Welsh blanket line the benches; and, best of all, there’s a woodburner throwing out light and heat. The bed is tucked away in the bow, vaguely triangular, with a low, beamed ceiling. It’s not for claustrophobes nor, it has to be said, for those who can’t cope without an en suite. There is both a neatly appointed (private) kitchen and bathroom facilities in a nearby old barn.
The sea is just a hundred metres or so away but whatever the view…you are moored in a field. QWerky? You bet …and we love it.
