This Boathouse is further down the Lake from our Osprey Boathouse, we have very similar facilities, but do not have a fireplace. Warm and cosy with stunning views of Lake as well.

"5 star accomodation and view"
All enquiries in booking this accommodation were addressed promptly and the process went smoothly, we booked at very short notice. Visited with my husband and 17 year old son who was happy to have internet access. The property and views from the balcony were outstanding, everything you would need in a self catering accommodation was available and the extras made it more special and personal. The owners have thought of everything. The fixture and fittings were of a high standard and the accommodation was so spacious. All local amenities are within a short walking distance and their is plenty of choice of shops and restaurants. This was our first visit to the lakes and we thoroughly enjoyed it, more so because of the beautiful accommodation which I think makes all the difference to a holiday! I cant wait to rebook, hopefully when the weather is warmer just so we can utilise the balcony more to sit out on. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the fact our stay was so short (3 nights) and we had to leave.
