Accommodation ranges from compact and bijou in Waterlodge ONE, to incredibly spacious at the larger end with Waterlodge SIX, which has the option of up to four bedrooms.

For all lodges, you enter the light and airy saloon lounge through sliding double-glazed patio doors from the boarding deck to find there’s plenty of space for dining and lounging furniture.

Whether relaxing or entertaining, you’ll never get bored of the ever-changing panoramic view.There’s a fully fitted galley kitchen, with a choice of kitchen cupboard and worktop finishes, standard gas or electric hob* plus fridge/freezer, microwave and optional dishwasher.

Bedrooms come equipped with bedside lights, and space for proper beds and allocated wardrobe space. Some even open out onto a private deck of their own.

Luxurious shower rooms come with quality sanitary ware, heated towel rail and optional space for a washing machine.

Outside, open deck areas at both ends provide space for outdoor furniture, and the optional staircase to the roof terrace creates acres of open air space to enjoy the views and chill out in the sun. You can even add a hot tub up there!

WHO ARE WATERLODGES DESIGNED FOR?

Literally anyone with the means and the desire to enjoy a lifestyle afloat.

Retirees – Waterlodges are easy to access, with deck level commonly at the same height as many pontoon docks, enabling disabled people and those with limited mobility to enter and enjoy the sights and sounds of life afloat.

Families – Imagine giving your children the opportunity to have amazing holidays on the water all year round?  They can literally fish off the deck, and you can carry a fleet of water toys from paddle boards to kayaks and even jet-skis and sailing dinghies!

Students – Does a student pad get any more fashionable than this?  Buy one for your children to live on while they’re at University, sell it again when they’ve finished, or carry on renting it during college holidays.

Young People – Some marinas offer residential houseboat berths (not ours, but we van help you find one) which can be a great place to live.  Join the growing army of people who have decided to turn their back on conventional property investment and instead demand other living experiences.  Low running costs and low energy bills, means Waterlodges makes sense financially.  Competitive finance packages for up to 10 years are available, putting a new Waterlodges in reach when bricks and mortar are sadly a dream for many.

Investment – Subject to mooring location and regulations renting a Waterlodge satisfies the needs of today’s generation of adventurers who are prepared to pay a premium for the experience of staying on a houseboat in the most #hashtaggable and instagrammable locations.

Business Use Waterlodges provides cost-effective, overnight and longer-term accommodation for employees, guests and contractors and make great floating offices too.

Greater London Workers – Stay overnight on your Waterlodge from Monday to Friday with great access to London City, M25, M3, M4 and Heathrow, then rent it out for the weekend and disappear back to the country?

The ultimate waterfront crash pad and alternative to a city flat!

CONSTRUCTION

Hand-built in Poland, meeting all UK and EU regulatory requirements for houseboats and pleasure craft ensuring strict safety and design criteria are met.

The structure is supported by two or three Rotomoulded Polyethylene floats with internal compartments and foam injected. These really are virtually unsinkable!

The floats also provide space for internal fresh water and waste water tanks.

The house construction is of pressure-treated timber, with UV-stable PVC external weatherboard cladding in a choice of colours, marine-grade Stainless Steel external deck fixtures and railings, constructed on a galvanised steel frame.

ENVIRONMENT

Thames Waterlodges are environmentally friendly, with generous thermal insulation, double-glazed windows, and a state-of-the-art gas or electric central heating system, which all helps to keep running costs low.

An optional “Off Grid” pack adds enough solar panels and power generation to allow the houseboat to be self-sufficient for electricity when required.

You can enjoy the tranquillity of a mooring in the middle of a scenic harbour, far from the crowds yet offering all the luxuries of home.
