Lakes and lochs (671)

Stay near a loch or lake on your next holiday and discover the true meaning of getting away from it all. Whatever the weather, staying in one of these cottages, farmhouses or other rural retreats will lift your spirits and help you completely unwind and relax.


Visit Scotland for breathtaking panoramic views of the Scottish Highlands and Lowlands – you could stay near Loch Lomond, Loch Ness or one of the 600+ other lochs. Or wake up to the tranquillity of Windermere in the Lake District, the valleys and llyns,of Wales or the many lakes dotted around France, Italy and Spain.


Lakes and lochs make great bases for activity holidays. You could have a go at fishing or get out onto the water by going kayaking or windsurfing. Mostly nestled inside pretty valleys, the surrounding area is almost always ideal for hiking and mountain biking too.

The town of Loches is , with all its pedestrian and medieval streets, fantastic, for that : a preserved gem of history, with a fantastic atmosphere. We are very proud to have brought to you the best of our region, and its treasures, to make you and your husband, to love it.

"Looked forward to a weeek end afloat rather than adrift"

This trip was the forth trip the group had with `Kates Boats` (the second on Samuel James)and sadly will be our last. We arrived on Friday (4th april) The group had 2 new guests for a long w end . W… More

I’m sorry that the trip didn’t work out for you this time. It is a shame that you told the send out staff that you were going to Warwick (a normal weekend trip) rather than aiming for the Tom of the Woods which is a good 4 days travel there and back. Unfortunately breakdowns do happen, even with the best maintained boats. Samuel James is an older boat, with a three star rating, which is reflected in the price. The rust problem with the water does occur if the water tank is not filled daily as we ask in our briefing, however with your planned schedule I doubt if there was any time available to keep the water tank filled. Throughout the two visits by the mechanic and the several emails since this is the first mention that you have made of a smelly toilet. I am unsure who you spoke to on Sunday who offered compensation, because the marina is actually closed and not staffed. Again my apologies that the holiday failed to live up to your expectations.
