Beautiful little boat, very cozy but with all the amenities you could wish for. Highly recommended even if just for the hot tub!

A fantastic stay on Baboo! The communication and instructions were very clear. We were greeted with decorations for my partners birthday, which was a lovely touch. We enjoyed time in the hot tub on a chilly November evening. Thank you, Natasha!

Natasha was especially lovely even putting up some balloons and a banner my partner loved it will definitely be coming back!! Our daughter loved the captains hat great fun!!

One of a kind experience. The set up on the boat was clean and well organised. The host even provided some birthday decorations upon request which was a really nice touch. I will definitely be recommending this stay to everyone.

THE BEST AIR BNB IN THE UK! Baboo was a magical experience. On our travels, myself and my partner always choose to stay in quirky and special locations, but this one topped all of our previous experiences. We loved every minute of it and I couldn’t recommend it more. Thanks to the Riverscapes Team for the cosy stay on board. We’ll be back!

I highly recommend this stay, this is our second time visiting and we have absolutely loved it both times. Can’t wait to return.

I booked Baboo for my partner's birthday/ anniversary weekend and it was amazing! Natasha had arranged for birthday banners and balloons as a surprise to both of us, the boat itself was spotless and the bed super comfortable! Thanks to a detailed guide we ordered a takeaway so we didn't have to cook, then spent the evening relaxing in the hot tub! It was the perfect romantic getaway and we will be sure to come back in the summer so we can take advantage of the BBQ and spend some time doing the water activities. I would highly recommend staying onboard Baboo!

I was looking for an unusual getaway and I found it here on Riverscapes. 2 nights on Baboo a 4 berth cruiser and near to so many things to keep you occupied. Ideal for couples, we had 2 children in tow (10 and 8), but still manageable and had a great time. The hot tub was a bonus and we made the most of it even when it was 1 degree outside. We have definitely made some family memories and Bob the Swan will not be forgotten any time soon. Check in and check out is easy and it was lovely to arrive to a warm boat, music playing and tea, coffee, sugar etc provided as part of the package. Cosy, fun and quirky weekend is just what we all needed.

We stayed at Baboo, and the experience was beyond magical! We had plans to visit Thorpe Park, and to celebrate my partners 20th Birthday- We always love an adventure, and were astonished by the care and effort which was so eloquently noticeable. Will be returning!

Very clean, quiet, and a unique experience. Appreciated the welcoming of my partners birthday with balloons, banner, towels folded into 2 swans and postcard!

Thank you so much for making Jetta and Tom's stay on Baboo a very cherished memory. Jetta was absolutely delighted. They sent us lots of photos of the boat as soon as they arrived. So good of you to dress it with balloons and banners. I will definitely share these on social media as it's such a unique stay and makes such an unusual gift for someone. Thank you for all of your effort. We all really appreciated it.

Me and the girlfriend had a lovely little quarantine for 3 nights, hot tub was lovely, the marine is beautiful and baboo is so lovely and cosy. Perfect relaxing getaway for a couple in self isolation ;P Thanks Natasha! :)
-Liam, March 2020
We stayed for a night, the boat was snug but had everything we needed - cooking equipment, utensils, coffee machine, body wash/shampoo... we also rented the hot tub so after dinner we spent the rest of the evening star gazing and Netflix-ing in it. The boat was also sparkling clean. Natasha was so thoughtful with putting up a surprise happy birthday banner and balloons for my partner. Overall a very special Air Bnb experience.

Amazing stay! Everything was as described. Great communication. Great value for money. Super cosy. I use hotels a lot and that’s the best sleep I’ve had when away from home. Thank you.
- Ross, January 2020
We wanted something a little different and we were very excited about this mini trip- it lived up to expectations. Fun, beautiful location and pretty cosy too. Natasha was so helpful with a small issue even on the day of the stay- her communication was excellent and we had a warm welcome upon arrival. Just trying to work out when we can return
- Sabrina, December 2019
We had a wonderful stay. Location is beautiful and it was a lovely touch to add balloons and a birthday banner to welcome us.
- Neil, November 2019
