Thank you so much for a truly magical stay on BlueBird. The boat was easy to find, cosy, clean and we loved the little touches for Christmas like the fairy lights and the tree! My kids were thrilled with the hot tub and PS3! the master bedroom was super romantic, the beds were comfortable and the boat was so lovely and warm all night. We had everything we needed even down to dishwasher tablets! We used Bluebird as a stopover on a journey but we will definitely be back as there seems to be lots of things to do and explore right on the doorstep. The host was friendly and super fast at communicating with us. Thank you for the memories!

Had an amazing stay on the Bluebird. Wow just Wow! It was incredible, the views, the tranquility, the romance, the houseboat itself, the Hot Tub. It was everything and so much more. Didn’t want to go home and cannot wait to come back again.
Had great communication via Natasha throughout. The place was so warm, clean and cosey on our arrival, with the addition of birthday decorations (thank you), from the swan towels laid on the bed with roses and chocolates.. to the pint of milk supplied in the fridge for us, there was nothing more I could have wanted here.. the extra touches and care put into these stays honestly just made our experience so enjoyable and relaxing.  Keep up the great work you all do for Riverscapes to be so thoroughly enjoyable :) Thank you. See you again soon :)

The boat is in a great location - accessible from m25 yet feels a million miles away.  The big plus for us was the hot tub. The kids loved it and they also enjoyed the novelty of staying in bunks on a boat.  Great for a special occasion.

Had an amazing experience staying on the bluebird, location was great and the small touches Natasha added for our birthday trip was very special.  Would definitely recommend, and hopefully revisit in the future!

We had 2 nights on board Bluebird at the end of the summer holidays and it was great!  Natasha’s communication throughout was fantastic- despite me emailing lots of times she always replied! Nothing was too much trouble.  The boat was in a great spot - good view across the water, and close to the car park and the shared amenities block - despite being close to use, there was no noise or disturbance, it was really is very peaceful.  We had fun using the kayaks; lovely setting just around the corner - and nice and quiet for the children to be safe. Life jackets were provided too.  We spent our full day there at Thorpe Park - literally just over the road. So nice to just walk over and back at the end of the day. No car park queues!!  The boat was very comfortable - there were 6 of us, and so had use of the sofa bed. And of course the hot tub! Enjoyed by us all!  Despite being august, the weather was not summer ! But the boat was nice and warm and plenty of hot water.  Would definitely recommend Natasha’s place - either this boat or any others they have on offer. Thank you for a great stay, memories made!

It was a lovely surprise to check in and be greeted with a birthday banner and balloons. This was not requested and I had only mentioned my birthday in passing. An additional lovely touch to a lovely stay! Especially enjoyed our soak in the hot-tub :) 

- Nicki, July 2021

We had a truly wonderful time on 'Bluebird' Natasha welcomed us with a genuine warm smile and friendly helpful chat made even more special with birthday balloons and banners. Bluebird has excellent amenities, even a dishwasher! Very clean, comfy, lovely and warm, lots of hot water and great shower. The hot tub was ready to use from the moment we arrived and an absolute joy that helped make our stay incredibly relaxing. definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to return soon. The only down side was our stay went too quick. Thank you for help making our stay so wonderful.

A lovely action packed trip or a relaxing night away... we visited for my partners 30th birthday and with restrictions still being limited of where we could go I am very pleased I found this unique accommodation! The place has all the amenities you need for a night away and lovely finishing touches... I would recommend 2 nights so you have time to fit everything in! We also visited Thorpe park as it is literally walking distance so would have been rude not too... we will definitely be back again and thank you for having us Riverscapes!

This boat stay is a must! Just go! Really cool boat with paddle boards and pedalos that you can take out and chill in the near by lagoon.. made our trip unforgettable! Not to mention the hot tub that we literally couldn't get out of :) the upstairs deck with a hammock and loungers is huge and SO peaceful too. Klaus and Natasha are really helpful, nice people and quick to respond if you need them but leave you to it otherwise. We even extended our stay because we loved it so much! Highly recommend x

I can thoroughly recommend a stay on any of Natasha’s boats. They are all immaculate and in a stunning location with plenty of parking. We stayed on the house boat which is absolutely beautiful. The hot tubs are an amazing touch and make staying on a boat in the winter a really special experience no matter the weather. Natasha let myself and my partner stay when we were dealing with quite a personal emergency and we found her to be faultless and caring in her approach and so responsive to any questions we had. We would absolutely visit again.

- Chloe, March 2021

This is an amazing find. really close to town. the actual boat is just marvellous and you feel like you been on holiday for a week by just staying one night. sitting in the jacuzzi or being on the upper deck watching the variety of birds and occasional jumping fish. delightful from start to finish.

- Anne, February 2021

Beautiful location, nice a quiet in January.

- Victoria, September 2020

Thanks so much Natasha and Team. We had a really fab stay. Was nice to do something different! The hot tub really made it special. All the staff were very friendly and helpful with everything.
The boat hire down the Thames is a must!
I have already recommended the boat to several others! Thanks again.

Incredible stay! Amazingly clean and fully stocked. Top deck is amazing with hammock and the bed was super comfortable. Excellent location and communication from hosts. Thanks again Natasha and Klaus!

What a wonderful stay on the river. Gorgeous views, peaceful and quiet, the hot tub was fun and we all slept very comfortably. All amenities provided, everything needed for a wonderfully relaxing stay... self isolating away from home in a very clean and safe space. Highly recommended and will most definitely return. 

- Natasha, March 2020

The whole stay from start to finish was fabulous!  It had everything we needed, it was well laid out.  Its location was perfect and the hot tub was great!

- Jason, February 2020

Great little trip and stay here. I'd recommend to anyone looking for something a little different. 

- Robert, January 2020


​Wonderful place, relaxing peaceful setting. Hot tub is amazing! Would 100% recommend.

Had an amazing time for our anniversary, the place was really lovely and had great personal touches. Really enjoyed the hot tub and appreciate the personal touches including a Happy Anniversary message! Would recommend this place 1000x to anyone looking to stay!

I cannot recommend this houseboat enough. We had such a lovely time (for our anniversary). It was peaceful, quiet (and still easy to reach), warm, comfortable, with thoughtful amenities and personal touches (such as a 'happy anniversary' banner, balloons, etc). We got really lucky with the weather and even managed to warm up a little in the sunshine on the upper deck over breakfast. We also enjoyed the SUPs (stand-up-paddle-boards), the glorious hot tub and a very comfortable bed. This was a unique and wonderful experience and we hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you so much, Natasha and team!
