The island is situated on the Thames between Shepperton and Weybridge and we are surrounded by the natural wildlife that the river has to offer.
Local activities include peaceful walks along the Thames path, kayak and boat hire, visiting Hampton Court Palace, Windsor Castle, the Royal Parks, watching rugby at Twickenham and tennis at Wimbledon as well as day trips to London.
There are many places to eat out locally in the nearby quaint Shepperton Village, Weybridge and Walton, but our favourites are the highly regarded Thames Court Pub which is a only 2 minute boat ride away from the house and great for lunch and dinner, as well as The Minnow.
Transfer services to local stations and airports are available and can be arranged on arrival or during your stay.

Ken and I have worked in the airline industry all our working lives and during those years travelled and stayed in guest accommodation throughout the world.
When we decided to build our garden cabin we wanted to make a guest suite we would like to stay in ourselves, and to that end have put heart and soul into making it into a beautiful tranquil haven for those wishing to experience the natural beauty that exists when living on an island on the River Thames. The interior of the cabin reflects our love of the sea and the river.
We love entertaining and seeing friends and family. We now have more time to enjoy life and appreciate the beauty of nature that surrounds our home, which we love sharing with others.
We look forward to sharing some Irish hospitality on this new venture with Airbnb.
