The detail

Moored in Gloucester Docklands and lovingly renovated to a very high standard inside and out, SULA Lightship is a former working ship, now converted into a self-catering property, available to rent. Sleeping four guests between two high-end cabins, and with full cooking and leisure facilities, SULA Lightship is the perfect accommodation option for couples, families and anyone else who fancies something a little bit different.

The main living space inside SULA Lightship combines hardwood floors and panels with comfy furniture and sleek kitchen equipment to create a comfortable and contemporary aesthetic. With WiFi and a television, be as plugged in as you like, or take the opportunity to unwind without digital distractions. Off the lounge there are two private cabins, one with its own small fridge and both with kettles and hot drink stations set up for you to enjoy a cup of tea in bed first thing in the morning. The carpentry and finishes are to the same high standard that you’ll experience elsewhere on the ship, making for two dreamy and restorative cabins.

Making use of reclaimed oak and with portholes facing the dock wall, the shower room on SULA Lightship has everything that you need, with lashings of hot water and contemporary fixtures and fittings; just because you’re on a former working ship, doesn’t mean you’ll be compromising on comfort or quality. As far as outdoor space goes, you have the choice of two wonderful decks. The Bow Deck is the ideal spot to watch the boats sail by, and is also where you can pick up a paddle board or canoe. Alternative, the Sun Deck is a great place to recline with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and gaze out toward Llanthony Priory’s spires, or watch the stars rise at the end of a long day on board.

SULA Lightship truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the comfort of an upmarket hotel combined with the exciting novelty of sleeping on a ship. No expense has been spared and no detail overlooking in creating a wonderful self-catered space for between one and four guests on board this stunning ship.

Being moored in the heart of Gloucester Docklands, the many bars, restaurants and retail facilities of Gloucester Quays are just a short walk away. There are over fifteen eateries within two hundred yards of the mooring, so that every taste and dietary requirement can be catered for. More active guests should check out the nearby climbing centre, while no trip to Gloucester is complete without exploring the famous cathedral, whose spires are visible from the sun deck.
