What an amazing little hideaway this place is. First visit of many, many more to come. Been inundated with messages from friends asking for the details to book.

“The most amazing place”

We have stayed here many times and it is our favourite place to stay. Having been to the Italian lakes a few times and other beautiful places, this hidden Boathouse on a small bay on Ullswater is our ultimate favourite holiday getaway. A real place to chill and de-stress from our busy lives.

The owners have done a great job renovating, with everything you could need even down to the dressing gowns and wine. Truly stunning and not to be missed. We have a tear in our eyes every time we have to leave.

What a fantastic little place!! So relaxing, homely, welcoming. The views are to die for! The boathouse itself is very clean and tidy with everything you need. Right down to a coffee machine with pods! We didn’t want to leave! And will definitely return. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. And would highly recommend.

“A Very Special Place”
Reviewed 10 April 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We were looking for some space, peace and quiet. The Boathouse offers just that! It is fitted out with everything you need for a relaxing break. The views from the balacony are breathtaking. The surrounding area's offers great places to explore, the village offers a number of pub's we enjoyed a wonderful sunday roast at the Sun Inn.

I would recomment a break at the Boathouse to anyone and look forward to returning soon.
