Welcome to Riverside Island Marina, Isleham, a unique combination of Swedish style waterside chalets and marina. The complex is set in woodlands, with a one mile circular walk around the island, wandering through shaded tree-lined paths. Over one hundred lodges nestle in the tree-lined inlets, each with its own water frontage and guaranteed moorings. Moorings are available for short and long term periods, both for boat storage and for live-aboards. Electrical hookup, water, LPG and diesel are all available.
This exceptional freehold Scandinavian styled marina lodge occupies a superb internal end position on Isleham Marina with both riverside mooring and fishing rights, with side extension giving larger and more versatile accommodation, generously proportioned with substantially larger gardens than most lodges with a mooring able to take boats approaching 50ft in length.
