Lovely river ambience on a comfortable moored houseboat

  • 4 of 5

We spent a restful 3 nights aboard the Unicorn - everything we needed on board. The back deck and hammock were perfect for birdwatching and for sunsets. Thanks to Wiggo and Frankie for their welcome.

perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our annual holiday been planning all year.the boat was perfect for us.felt right at home. A lovely quiet spot. The neighbours were very nice.the only thing wrong was the weather 39 Christmas eve and 41 Christmas day.the air conditioner cooed very well. My hubby loves bites the river was in flood and was going down so the fish weren't biting. Will definitely stay there again.the owners were very lovely couple.

Fun Houseboat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on the Unicorn Houseboat! It contained everything we needed despite its age and was clean and tidy. The gas oven was broken (the owner is aware and will be replacing) this was not an issue for us as we used the microwave, bbq and stovetop. We enjoyed using the fishing rods, kayaks, bbq, hammock and comfy outdoor furniture. We would love to have a return visit some day.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time here! Nothing fancy but everything you need. Rear deck was where we spent most of the time, in the hammock or the swinging pod chairs. Really relaxing. Only had a few boats go past the whole weekend. Took the kayaks out a few times. Well equipped kitchen and even gave the sauna a go!

A better alternative to a holiday house if you're looking for somewhere near the river.

Lovely spot and will be back again/recommend.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quirky houseboat! Our first trip to the region, so it was great to stay on the water but being moored meant that we didn't have to think about driving or parking etc. Having kayaks was a bonus and we were out in them everyday. Lovely owners who were really helpful.
