    • Royal Bushy Park (huge area of woods and grasslands, home to red and fallow deer, with water gardens, the Diana fountain and a play ground). Turn right out of the marina and the entrance is approximately 5 minutes walk away across the road (please read paragraph below re: Wildlife-Deer)

    Wildlife-Fowl:
    You may wish to feed our resident ducks, swans and geese – a great fun thing to do (reducing stress and increasing creativity too!) Cooked rice, birdseed, peas, corn, oats and chopped lettuce are far superior to bread, the latter causing nasty surface algae, killing fish and giving waterfowl diseases. Also, look out for the wild parakeets in the area!

    Wildlife-Deer:
    There are about 320 deer within Royal Bushy Park, opposite the marina. The red deer are the largest mammal native to the British Isles and in summer their coats are glossy red. Fallow deer, introduced by the Romans, are smaller and their summer coats, usually spotted, vary from a cream to dark brownish colour.
    During autumn, deers rut (breeding season). Red stags and fallow buck compete for females. At this time, the large males roar, bark and clash antlers in a spectacular way in an attempt to fight off rivals and attract as many females as possible. Birthing season is between May - July and the young are hidden by their mothers amongst the long grass. The young are very vulnerable at this time and their mothers, being sensitive to disturbance, will defend their babies.
    Deer are wild animals - please keep at least 50 meters away from them and be aware of your surroundings so you don't come between 2 rutting stags or a mother and her calf. Do not touch, feed or photograph deer at close range.

    What's special about this boat

    Other things to note:

    ID
    Guests are required to provide a scan or photo of their government issued photographic ID (passport or driver's license) to our private e-mail address prior to their arrival, which will be provided once a booking has been confirmed.

    PARKING
    On-road parking is normally free at weekends and restrictions usually apply during weekdays, ie. 8:00am to 9:30am AND 4:30pm to 6:30pm but due to functions at Hampton Court Palace, the parking situation is always subject to change. We have also organised with a local Restaurant/Hotel approx. 350 meters away for our guests to be able to park there for £5 a day, organised directly with them.

    CHECK-INS / MEET AND GREET
    We are a self-catering, self-service property so do not offer this as standard. Please let us know in advance if you would like to arrange to be ‘shown the ropes’.

    UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
    Please be forewarned, being on a boat is a very unique experience and many things are different to being a landlubber and staying in standard accommodation, or a hotel for that matter, in terms of staffing, electricity, toilet flush systems, etc. Upon booking, we will send details of all the things that are not strikingly obvious so our guests are forearmed. We really have tried our best to make this a fun/exciting but comfortable/relaxing experience - without it being intrusive - and very much hope you enjoy your stay!
