“We have relished designing and building every detail of the Raft. From the curve of the roof to the hand-hammered brass door handles. We’ve maximised the amount of light and views of the estuary to make the most of our incredible location. It gives us great satisfaction to have others come and enjoy using the space as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

I just had a fantastic weekend stay here on the Raft. The place is especially well thought out with plenty of character. Whilst the property is small, it makes the most of the space and was very clean and well provisioned.

The raft was a lovely place to stay. Full of character and very comfortable. The only problem was we didn't have more time!
