"Riverscapes" offers a choice of perfectly appointed 4-6 berth liveaboard boats (pictured) - each with its own unique characteristics.  So, whether you choose a houseboat for its open-plan space to enjoy a get together with friends or family - or, a snug romantic stay on a sports cruiser - we are sure you will enjoy your experience.

Our staycation boats are available all year round - no matter the weather - on an exclusive use, self-catering basis and include BBQ's, bikes, water sports and each has a private hot tub.

We are based in a wonderfully peaceful marina in Chertsey, a very quaint English town on the banks of the upper Thames - half way between Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace - with ample parking.  

There are plenty of places of interest to visit in the local area including historic monuments, market towns, museums, racecourses, theme parks and nature trails.  Or, direct trains to Waterloo take approximately 35 minutes should guests wish to sample the many tourist attractions in Central London too.  

This is, quite simply, the perfect base to kick back and relax after an action-packed adventure!  Or, just stay on board and spend your time reading, playing board games or watching river life go by.  For the adventurous and energetic, why not try one of our kayaks, pedalos or SUP/stand-up paddle boards which can be used in the stunning lagoon nearby.  Or, you could take one our bikes out for a ride in the countryside!   Also a rare find for those keen on fishing as this sport is permitted here all year around from the boat you are using.

Experienced anglers can take advantage of discounts on our FISHING page!

We can also offer discounted SKIPPERED CRUISES or SELF-DRIVE BOAT HIRE so our staying guests can explore the local area a bit further afield by river.
