Planning this winter’s getaway? Staying a little closer to home never looked so good, with not only the entirety of beautiful Yorkshire on our doorsteps, but also the iconic Lake District, too. Sure, we’re ambassadors of loving all things God’s Own Country, but every once in a while, it doesn’t hurt to head further afield.
Perched on the waterside of Lake Ullswater, you’ll find a stunning little boathouse – which, even from the exterior, oozes sheer cosiness.
A traditional stone building on the outside, on the inside, guests will stumble on a lot more than expected – with a deceptively large interior that’s cosy enough for two. And while it overlooks the stunning views of the water, at the rear of the property, you’ll be treated to 10 acres of beautiful woodland, perfect for a romantic stroll or a bit of peace and quiet from the world.
The beautiful bolthole comes well equipped with everything you need for your break away, including a snug living area complete with a log burner, a small but fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with a walk-in shower, and most notably, a stunning balcony overlooking the picturesque lake.
The stunning local area is just the cherry on top of a wonderfully delicious cake, with Penrith, Pooley Bridge, Dacre and more right on your doorstep. Not only that, but there’s a ton of activities to take part in, too, from boat trips, kayaking and sailing, to horse riding, nature walks and heading to a luxury spa.
But what else did you expect from the second largest lake in the Lake District? For keen hikers, nearby you’ll find the third highest peak in England, Helvellyn – and for water lovers, there’s even a 20-mile lake walk to take part in, too. Better pack the hiking boots!
The spot is truly idyllic all year round, with the snowy months providing a magical air about Ullswater that can’t be experienced at any other time of year. To find out more about The Boathouse or to book your stay, check it out here.
