In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


This detached boathouse is in a superb, secluded position over the water on the shore of Lake Windermere.

These detached (Spout Crag, ref 27784) ) and semi-detached (Lakeshore, ref 27785)) boathouses are in a superb, secluded position over the water on the shore of Lake Windermere. The boathouses are not only an ideal romantic hideaway and walking base, they also provide the ultimate holiday location for enjoying sailing or water sports on Windermere with direct access to the lake, small pier and boat mooring facilities with each property (storage under the boathouse 8m x 2.5m) with a boardwalk at the side. Both holiday properties are tastefully and comfortably furnished throughout, they boast a light and airy living room opening on to a large sun terrace overlooking the lake and fells. A host of Lakeland attractions can be found nearby, including many of Wordsworth’s inspirational locations - his home, Dove Cottage, is open to the public all year. Grizedale Forest, with its Go Ape high wire adventure course, Grasmere and Ambleside are all close by. Visit Hilltop Farm near Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her stories, or take a trip to Hawkshead where there is a gallery dedicated to her original drawings and illustrations. Take a trip across Lake Windermere on the leisurely steamer, which connects with the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Sizergh Castle, Holker Hall and Levens Hall all within easy reach. The South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton is a wonderful day out for all the family, as is the Aquarium of the Lakes at Lakeside and Muncaster Castle with its extensive gardens. Excellent walks locally with stunning views, as well as cycling and pony-trekking. Bowness, with its wealth of shops, pubs and restaurants, is just 11/2 miles away.

41 steps to entrance. All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen all with tiled floors. 2 bedrooms: 1 double (5ft), 1 twin. Shower room with toilet.

    Spout crag boathouse location is second to none. I have stayed here twice and loved it both times - there is a lot to do in the area. I would throughly recommend a holiday here. The views are fabulous and the range of wildlife is impressive - I have seen otters during both my visits

    Spout Crag is exactly as you see - walking in on a wild Winters night, it was solid, warm, clean and beautifully presented. We LOVED just sitting and watching the view - which is just as well as storm Barney battered Windermere for the whole week! The Swan family came twice daily but the wild weather kept everything else away. Only negatives - for s/c: no kitchen scales, sieve or measuring jug - and for a quality property, we were surprised to find the very cheapest of pillows on the beds (we take our own anyway).

    Second visit here and had a lovely week. Some upgrading needed to single mattresses and bathroom fittings but everything else was fine. Great location on Windermere if you have a boat but unable to access anywhere on foot from the property. Wi-fi would be a real bonus. This is a unique property directly on the lake and the views are amazing whatever the weather.

    Absolutely perfect location, views from the boathouse were stunning. Good place to stay if wanting to sail your own dinghy directly from where you are staying but also ideal for any sort of holiday, walking, canoeing, romantic break etc. Plenty to do no matter what the weather.

    Beautiful location and a stunning boathouse. Shame no boat came with it but we did have our kayaks. Couldn't get the tumble dryer to work so we just used the airer. Tried to book for October but it was booked.

    We had another fantastic stay at this beautiful boathouse and definitely want to stay again although the week we wanted for next year had already been taken. The only slight negative is the large bedroom bed which we found uncomfortable. However this in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the place. It's a stunning property with glorious views that we could gaze at for hours. The place is also really well equipped and had everything we could need. We can't wait to come back again.
