From the king size bed you can gaze at the star lit sky at night or watch the sun rising over the fells in the morning. The slipper bath is perfect for easing away aches and pains after a days exploring whilst sipping champagne, after which wrap yourself up in the fluffy bathrobes provided. What really makes this property special however, is the balcony, standing majestically over the lake with stunning views over the lake and fells beyond, you can dine al fresco or simply sit and marvel at the wildlife going about their daily business whilst watching the boats sail by. Guests can try their hands at fishing off the private jetty or sit and tip your toes into the lapping water below. Pooley Bridge with shops, bars and restaurants is only a short walk away and for those wanting to venture further away Keswick, Ambleside and Windermere are all within a short drive. Renowned for fine dining the Sharrow Bay Country Inn and Rampsbeck Hotel are nearby for those wanting to enjoy a romantic meal if tempted to leave the boathouse. All in all, the boathouse provides everything you need for a romantic getaway to the Lake District. There is a £100 breakage deposit payable prior to the start of your stay, this will be refund after your holiday subject to no damage being caused. PLEASE NOTE: Dogs are not accepted at this property.More

The boat house was amazing and the view from the bath was priceless looking out over the lake. It snowed heavily when we were there and the water pipes froze up meaning we couldn’t shower however the log burner kept us cosy.

The location is excellent being right on the lake edge. Wonderful views across Ullswater. Small but very well laid out. Clean and everything you need for a short or long stay. Lots of near by walks and the village of Pooly Bridge a three minute...More
