This lovely space is perfect for you and your guests. The "O" is a 57 feet long x 10 feet wide (18m x 3m) wide beam barge, moored near Windsor, on the River Thames. (See "Other things to note")


A wide beam barge on the River Thames situated near historic sites, restaurants, shops and pubs, parks and walks. It offers extraordinary views and a great taste of life on the river. It has a beautifully finished light oak interior. The main bedroom has super-comfy brand new Sterns & Foster double mattress. The smaller second bedroom is suited for a second couple, a single or up to three small children. There are two day beds in the main living room for two additional guests. It has ample galley (kitchen,) with a gas hob, oven and fridge. It also features an open floor-plan, an antique log burner and cosy central heating and a large wet-room, with shower, sink and toilet. The rooftop deck has outdoor furniture for al fresco dining.

Akses tamu

The entire barge, except a small area under the second berth used for storage and the closets and drawers in the main bedroom.

PLEASE NOTE: Please be aware that due to new restrictions, moorings in Windsor are very hard to come by. I will give you three choices along the river for your mooring that are within a 5-10 minute drive, or a short train ride away from Windsor and Eton Riverside station. After you choose the mooring that you like best I will give you an appropriate rendezvous point.
Oftentimes during your stay, I can take you out for a short cruise on the river. You may even try steering the boat, (under supervision of course.) I would appreciate 50 pounds per hour to offset direct operating costs.
Those new to the boating life will have a wonderful and fun time. However, please be aware that it is not like being in a house or hotel in terms of water and electricity use. For instance, we have a lovely strong shower, but because water is stored on the boat in a tank and not connected to the mains water supply, there is 20 minutes worth of water for showering per day. Divide that amongst your party as you see fit! Being off grid, the boat's electrical system has limited power. Therefore, appliances over 650W will not work. These include hairdryers, curling tongs, toasters, the grill and irons. We do have a petrol generator that can run most small appliances of up to 1500W. There is an additional £10 charge for using the generator to cover the petrol costs.
Absolutely no smoking on or around the boat.
Please note we do not have wifi on the boat.
We have light breakfast supplies, tea, coffee, jam, butter, cereal, bread and milk for you.
We have towels and bathroom products for your use, environmentally friendly shower gels, shampoos etc.
While children will enjoy a great, fun time on the boat, please be aware, as with any river location, it requires extra vigilance from parents of young children, or non-swimmers.
Presently, our fully functional porthole windows do not yet have a decorative trim finish on the inside.
For people over 6 foot 1 inch, please note that the ceiling height on the boat is 6 foot 2 inches.
The internal space is 450 square feet.
We have no washing machine. If you require laundry or ironing services, we can direct you to the nearest launderette or dry cleaners.
On rare occasions I may need to move the boat to fill up the water tank. This takes about two hours. Should this be necessary, I will coordinate with you to make sure it is at a time that is convenient for you.
On rarer occasions, (usually when there has been a period of heavy rain, or strong winds,) boat owners are advised by the Environment Agency not to move the vessel, except under exceptional circumstances because of the river conditions. Also, sometimes certain locks are temporarily closed for repair. So we cannot guarantee a specific mooring location in those circumstances. British weather and lock repair sometimes dictate that we change our plans and just moor safely where we are. Should this occur and we have advance warning of it, we will do our very best to move and get you as near as is humanly possible to the location of your choice.
Fishing is permitted on the Thames during the season, which is anytime, except between 15th March to 15th June. A Rod license is needed to fish from the boat.
Please try to feed the swans healthy food! They absolutely adore bread, but it is unhealthy for them.
Unfortunately, the boat is not wheelchair accessible.

Beautiful tranquil setting. Host was very accomodating. Very comfortable and cosy stay, there were 6 of us and would say the boat would suit groups of 4 better but there was enough room for us all. We were given a great 'good morning' from the swans and a family of ducks. If you are looking for something a bit different you wont go far wrong with this.

A really great experience. Bobby and Hellena are fantastic hosts, they know all the best spots on the river. Their beautiful boat is a fantastic way to spend a weekend, even if 'boats' aren't usually your thing! We will definitely be coming back.

This is a lovely boat with three different moorings available for use in the Windsor area. Taking a trip along the river with the owner, Bobby, when we first arrived, feeding swans from the window of the boat and looking out on a misty morning over the Thames were highlights. The wet-room is great quality, much better than we expected for a barge type of boat. The two double beds are lovely and comfortable - although they're both very high-up, so maybe not ideal for smaller children (they were fine for our 6 year olds). The single bed I slept on in the living area was very comfy, but again with small children you may not want to have them sleep near the hazards of the kitchen area and the wood-burning stove. The decks of the boat would be stressful with very small children, but with our children aged 6 it was fine, so long as we kept an eye on them. We locked the doors when we didn't want to have to watch the kids all the time. Do take heed of the instructions regarding the electricity, as the power may run down and require that you start the engine to re-charge it. We were glad of a torch when starting the engine up in the dark at 6am. Being on a barge feels a bit like glamping, it's delightful, but in some respects quite basic. We love camping and the novelty of being on the water was fantastic, so it worked very well for us.

A great way to spend some time on the Thames and explore the countryside around Windsor. Bobby and Helena were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The Barge was very comfortable and the children were thrilled to bits with the experience. There is a huge choice of places to visit in the area. Highly recommended.

This boat is absolutely delightful - clean, well-equipped (we cooked a 60th birthday meal on board), and with enough space for all of us (six adults and two dogs). Host was endlessly helpful and flexible with timings, going above and beyond to ensure a good time was had by all. Definitely recommended!

Upon your arrival I will meet you and show you around the boat and explain the electrics, battery, heating etc. Every other day or so, at a time convenient to you, I will stop by to check the mooring, the river conditions and to see if there is anything you need. I will also be available to assist you anytime by phone or text.
