We welcome children of all ages but parents must be aware of the nature of the holiday and the obvious proximity to deep water. Life jackets are available.

Further details indoors

Enter Painted Lady amidships down oak steps into the main salon, galley and dining area. A pine dresser top and Belfast sink over looking the lake actually makes doing the washing up a pleasure whilst watching the birdlife busy itself on the lake. The cabins lie fore and aft and both have their own decks on which to enjoy a quite cup of coffee in privacy.

The wood burning stove in the salon allows the out of season visitor to enjoy the boat as the evenings draw in. The lake is stocked with Rainbow Trout and provides the fisherman a perfect and peaceful location in which to enjoy his hobby.

Further details outdoors

Blagdon Water is a 35acre site with 15acres of young woodland. As you drive through the trees the lake appears at the far end of the site. Painted Lady has her own exclusive 3acres with barbecue and picnic area.

The remaining 30 acres are yours to roam as you wish alongside the deer, rabbits, hare, foxes, buzzards, kestrels, barn owls, woodpeckers and numerous water-birds. Blagdon Water is proud to be an energy efficient and environmental project using solar power.
