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 a large wet-room, with shower, sink and toilet. The rooftop deck has outdoor furniture for al fresco dining.


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


Upon your arrival I will meet you and show you around the boat and explain the electrics 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.


PLEASE NOTE: We have recently encountered mooring restrictions in Windsor. We now only have 2 options in Windsor proper. The first requires a 10 minute woodland walk to the mooring. This could be a bit of a challenge for anyone with mobility issues. The other is across the river in Eton, but is often occupied. We have many other excellent options that are within a 5-10 minute drive, or a short train ride away from Windsor and Eton Riverside station.
Airbnb doesn't allow me to move the barge with guests on board, but after you check-out, I can oftentimes take you out for a short jaunt on the river. If you like, you can even try steering the boat, (under supervision of course.) I would appreciate 50 pounds to offset the costs of fuel. This is only after you checkout and is not associated with Airbnb.
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 350W 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.
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 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.
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.

We use Airbnb as a way to meet new friends. We love to have are friends stay with us and enjoy showing them Old Father Thames. All monies are optional and are to help us cover operating cost.

Parties permitted, but please check with me before planning one, as on certain moorings we need to be especially respectful of noise levels for our neighbours in the surrounding boats and houses.

I'm not allowed to move the barge with guests on board.

We were so excited to be staying on a boat. Table and chairs on the roof were the perfect spot for breakfast or a glass of prosecco!

The Onion is a beautifully finished barge. It's spacious, clean, and has a wonderful energy about it. Bobby is welcoming and friendly. We loved our time on the water and would definitely go again!

We had a great stay on Bobby's boat, we were travelling with our boys (5&7) and staying overnight on the Onion was a little something to make the trip a bit more of an adventure. They loved sleeping in the little cubbyhole bed and we loved having a drink on the roof. We're already planning our next trip!

Bobby is a great host and made me feel like I was staying on a friend barge. Great communication before and during our stay. The barge was spacious and clean, looked just as does in the photos. What he doesn't show in the photos is the patio table and chairs on the roof! We loved being up there and on the bow watching the rowers, other boats, and geese go by. We mutually agreed on the mooring location near Maidenhead Bridge. A lovely residential neighbourhood with many conveniences nearby. Would definitely stay again if we return to the area.

This was the first time I stayed on the a barge and the experience was wonderful. The host were very welcoming and very accommodating. It fitted 6 people in comfortably. It was lovely and clean and was situated in a beautiful location. It had everything we needed on board. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family and I would definitely do this again myself.

If you want an experience and are adventurous then this is the place for you. We took a chance because how often can you say you stayed on a house boat looking across from the Queens Gardens at Windsor. Parking is a quick walk from train station. Great time for one night! Make sure to bring some bread or potato chips to feed the swans and ducks with.

I am very happy to be an Airbnb Superhost. My fiancee and I enjoy hosting and making new friends. We love meeting people from all over the world and sharing conversations and life stories. We use Airbnb to facilitate these meetings. Many of our guests plan to return and we are honoured to count them among our friends.
Our intentions are to ensure you have a magical stay on our barge on the River Thames. The river is beautiful, awesome, peaceful and ever changing. A ribbon of beauty winding through the English countryside.
I am currently in sales. Previously, I was a pilot flying both military and commercial aircraft. I enjoy golf, hiking, fishing, camping, singing, dancing and stargazing. My fiancee is in the arts. She enjoys theatre, literature, golf and tea.
We are thankful for the opportunity to live on the river. You support this dream by sharing it and the operating costs with us. Thank you for your bookings and your generous donations.

All monies are donations and contributions to cover the direct expenses of operating the launch during your excursion/stay.
