This superb boathouse is the perfect hideaway in a superb, secluded position 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.

    A couple of little niggles but otherwise we loved this place. Firstly, there were 2 couples in our group and unfortunately the beds in the twin room weren't long enough for one of the party, who is nearly 6 foot. (As a side note, if you're expecting to be able to push the beds together, you're wrong as you then can't open the door!). The other issue was that we booked this place because it had the boat storage facilities underneath the house, and we were all taking paddleboards with the intention of storing them there for easy access to the water. Unfortunately the garage door is broken and can't be opened so this facility is unusable- probably not an issue for many people but a shame it was advertised incorrectly as it was one of the reasons we chose it. However, if you don't have anyone reasonably tall needing to stay in the twin room, or need to use the boat storage, then this place is brilliant. All the basics that you would expect from a self catered place, very clean, comfortable, the under floor heating is great, a lovely big powerful shower, and most of all, the views are out of this world. Waking up to those views over the lake each morning was absolute heaven. It's in a lovely quiet location a couple of miles south of Bowness. We got a taxi back from Bowness one night for about £7.

    We stayed at the boathouse for our honeymoon in October 2015, and what an amazing place. The boathouse has the most amazing views from the conservatory area and was so incredibly peaceful, we saw beautiful sunsets, had a family of ducks come visit us on the jetty and was able to just watch the world go by. We loved everything about the boathouse. The location was brilliant, only a 5 minute drive into Bowness where there were plenty of nice restaurants for dinner and easy driving access to the rest of the main Lake District. The boathouse was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a really memorable honeymoon. Thank you very much, we will be returning!

    Amazing location, peaceful and scenic. Overall we had a fabulous holiday but there is room for some improvement. We had a few observations; the main one being the beds were very uncomfortable and the double felt small and very lumpy. Shower got blocked. Vacuum cleaner didn't work so floors got mucky. But the amazing setting offset any niggles we may have had, absolutely perfect location. We would love to stay again but just hope they replace all the horrible beds.

    The best way to enjoy the lake. The area is stunning as is the view from the boathouse. Excellent holiday.
