*Our RiverPods start from only £75,000!*

At the RiverPod company we are proud to announce that our team have just completed our 25th, bespoke built, RiverPod!
This is an amazing achievement by our very talented team.

We have just completed our 25th RiverPod!

Our RiverPods have appeared More 4's series, My Floating Home!

Our River Pods Houseboats were born through thinking green! Each River Pod is bespoke built for comfortable, green, low cost living and at a very affordable price. Our show River Pod has one bedroom, fully fitted kitchen and shower room, complete with a lounge dining area and can accommodate 2-4 people, although we are able to build to any size up to 44 x 12ft and include 2 or even 3 bedrooms, depending on your budget and we are always happy to discuss your ideas and plans.

Our RiverPods can also incorporate a front and rear decking area so you can be at one with the outside.

The RiverPods have recycled all round insulation, this includes 100mm in the floor, 100mm in the walls and 100mm in the ceiling! Our RiverPods also have heat retaining double glazed windows and doors - They are fully insulated, keeping you cosy in the winter months and cool in the summer months! We can even offer an option of underfloor heating.

We have built in a unique Klagester system that has been integrated into our also unique, licensed floating system, so the dirty water is treated and sanitised before then going back into the river.

Our unique floating system is made from HDPE, which is lightweight yet super-strong. It is recycled and super buoyant. Oxygen, salt and water have no effect on HDPE, it is not affected by the ravages of time. It does not need to be painted, or anti-fouled. Our floatation system will never need to be removed from the water for maintenance or cleaning, unlike all other boat hulls. Simply put: HDPE offers zero corrosion, zero maintenance

The exterior of our River Pods can be clad in various materials from natural cedar wood to composite wood effect panels and profile cladding. All come in a choice of colour finish

Every River Pod houseboat is built in the UK and is unique, no two will ever look identical!

Just want to say a huge thank you to Richard, Mick, Charlie and the test of the team at The RiverPod Company for helping to make a dream come true. I've admired the RiverPods after seeing one floating down the river about 6 years ago and after just spending my first night in mine, I couldn't be happier. The build process was quick and stress free and I oved having an input into the design, layout and being able to visit at different stages of the build. The transport and delivery was also highly professional. A great local company, I highly recommend!

We have always wanted to live on the river and the opportunity arose to do it The RiverPod Company and their amazing product convinced us it was the way to go! Richie, Mick and the team have been brilliant. Being able to design the Pod from start to finish has bee a really enjoyable experience and we would recommend it to anyone who has been thinking about going down this route. The Pod looks amazing inside and out and has already attracted the interest of many admirers. Here's to many happy years in our unique home

Simon and Sam Milan

So excited to begin a new chapter in our lives and we are very happy with our new RiverPod. Couldn't fault the service from start to finish and Richard, Mick and the team were brilliant. We were kept up to date every step of the way and the delivery of the Pod was awesome to see.

Mr and Mrs Harman

We could not be happier with our new Riverpod and look forward to spending many nights relaxing on the river in her.

The whole experience from start to finish was amazing and nothing was too much trouble for Richard and his team.

Cheers to the first of our many pods!

We describe our RiverPod as "luxury on the River"! It offers us a unique experience and ensures us with warmth and peace. We choose the underfloor heating option, which give us all year round complete comfort.

Mr and Mrs Board

It's an exciting and daunting challenge setting up a new home especially when we were looking for something a little different! It was therefore very fortunate that we found the Riverpod company as not only did they provide the "different" but Richard, Mick and the team worked with us to help design what we wanted / needed in a friendly and professional (non salesy) way. The finished Pod has been better in terms of fixtures, fit and finish than we hoped. Now you would expect a review on here to be positive but for us one of the key questions would be: if the need arose for us to do it again would we have another Riverpod? The answer is yes.

Mr and Mrs Hempstead

I am over the moon with my RiverPod and the new way of life I am now leading. Also, I was really pleased with the design, build and customer service that the RiverPod Company provided me. I am enjoying entertaining friends and family onboard my new and unique home. Many thanks to all the great team at The RiverPod Company for their excellent service.

Mr P Gonzalez

My RiverPod has given me a fantastic new and relaxed way of life, better than I even dreamed of. I love my unique living space and was very happy with the professional and helpful service I received from the RiverPod Company throughout the entire build and afterwards. I would highly recommend this way of living and The RiverPod Company.

Mr J Field

I would just like to say, thank you for my beautiful home, it has been an absolute delight working with you and your team at River Pod. Also, the pod is just what you said it would be, warm and cosy and cheap to run! I've lived on all sorts of boats over the years, but without doubt my River Pod is the best. A big thank you to you and all your team.

PS. Keep up the good work!

Mr L Kent

I have had the total good fortune to come across the Riverpod Company,
whose professional work, i.e. the designing, building, and total commitment to provide an exciting, thoughtful and sustainable home for each client and their individual means, has been life changing for me. Richard, Mick and the team have been considerate, interested, warm, friendly and informative along every stage of the build and have been available to answer any queries that I have had which i have greatly appreciated. Also I must give special thanks to the guys transporting and craning my pod into the right position to allow it finally to be set free, they were truly fantastic, clearly very experienced, patient and full of humour.

Ms A Harvey

We are so pleased with our RiverPod! It is a lovely retreat on the river. It has all the space we need and is flooded with light. We have wonderful views from the porthole windows across the river and with a balcony at each end, we can enjoy the sunshine all day! Richard and his team are so professional and have given us exactly what we wanted and more. We are looking forward to spending lots of relaxing times on our uniquely designed holiday home.
