Houseboat Pride of Leyden is fully equipped with every comfort, from a well stocked kitchen, to central heating and air conditioning, a TV and Wifi internet, and a veranda with a spectacular view. The main bedroom sleeps two in a king-size bed, the study sleeps one on a sofa bed.

The houseboat is moored in the Nieuwe Rijn, on the edge of Leiden's centre. It is a very picturesque part of Leiden, with a view of a drawbridge, period style street lamps and typical Dutch style houses. A short walk takes you to one of Holland's largest shopping areas. And just around the corner are a restaurant and a supermarket. There is good parking (free) and you're only 5 minutes away from the motorway. Leiden train station is on both the intercity network and the night train network, so trains run frequently and throughout the night.

We have really enjoyed staying on The Pride of Leyden. The location is lovely - just outside the main town, but still just minutes away from the city centre. Jacqueline has made it really comfortable and we felt well looked after even though we were self catering. The cupboards were well stocked with Dutch delicacies so breakfasts and snacks were... more

The houseboat has all amenities one could ask for including aircon in the living area which was essential during our stay as the temperatures soared to 30 degrees C. The owner Jacqueline met us at the agreed time and showed us around. She had stocked up on essentials such as bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee, etc. so we did not... more

My mother and I travelled to The Netherlands in April and stayed for part of our holiday (5 nights) in Leiden. Jacqueline had replied to emails prior to our visit very promptly and she met us on arrival and showed us how to use the appliances.
