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.

    Beautiful location - so peaceful. House was well equipped and comfortable. Not much in the way of outside space with the house, but with the balcony doors wide open it feels like you're outside. I would definitely go back.

    Stayed here 3 years in a row and dont plan to stop, love it, my son loves it and its perfect to get away after a busy December. However, in this day in age you have to move with the times and to keep up with other such boathouses I feel an optional portable WiFi box would suit modern families, if you dont need it simply dont turn it on. Beds need an upgrade as the two singles have springs poking through and the hoover is surely on its last year. Fresh cutlery too. All ive said on the improvements dont take away why I go and will continue to go, its peacefully majecstic and I love it. See you Jan 2018

    Wow is the best way to describe the boat house. We were wowed from day one. Everything we needed. We loved the peace and quiet and the ever changing scenery. I wouldn't change a thing. We had a little robin living in the garden who we saw a few times. Loved the starter pack of tea, coffee, wine and biscuits etc. It was perfect.

    Gorgeous views over Lake Windermere. Boathouse DOSNT have internet. Could have been cleaner. I.e. Dirty pot in dishwasher etc. But didn't take long to clean. Double bed is a double bed not a Kingsize. Despite this would stay again

    Lovely location, good view across the lake . Living room and kitchen good and everything you need ..however bed in double room should be bigger it's not full double ..and welcome pack was not great no hardship supplying fresh milk .

    Just needs a good clean up, rusty soap tray in shower room, rust in the back of the fridge and all the windows needed to be cleaned, sour milk left in fridge and three of the forty steps loose. But apart from that being close to the water and looking out on the morning and dusk was great.
