    “Another Amazing Stay”

    This was our second visit and yet again we were thrilled by the wildlife around the property. We rented a canoe from a nearby company who delivered to the door. We enjoyed exploring the lake and walking in the fabulous countryside. The property has everything you need for your stay. it is luxurious and cosy but the best kept secret is the AMAZING view.

    This was our second visit and yet again we were thrilled by the wildlife around the property. We rented a canoe from a nearby company who delivered to the door. We enjoyed exploring the lake and walking in the fabulous countryside. The property has everything you need for your stay. it is luxurious and cosy but the best kept secret is the AMAZING view. Whether you sit on the balcony or lounge on the huge sofa you are presented with an ever changing view. The reflections on the water the swans and the occasional otter. Looking forward to the next trip soon.

The property

With one of the most sought after locations in England, Ullswater Boathouse has stunning views over Lake Ullswater from the lounge, balcony, private lake frontage or the decked terrace overlooking the lake.

The boathouse is the perfect hideaway, romantic or honeymoon retreat at any time of year with a real sense of escapism as it is tucked away via half a mile lane from the rest of the world. Imagine waking up to your own private spectacular view over the most romantic lake in England.

The Ullswater Far Boathouse is a perfect year round combination of privacy and luxury for a honeymoon hideaway or idyllic retreat for two. The Ullswater Boathouse offers you a stunning water’s edge view of Ullswater lake with a floor to roof glass wall overlooking the lake.

Whether you are curled up with a book on a luxurious sofa looking out at white sailboats from the nearby sailing school, or relaxing outside on the balcony at dusk, watching the gold and orange sunset colours reflect off the fells onto the perfectly still water, you will understand why so many visitors think that Ullswater is arguably the most romantic lake in England for “getting away from it all” and “recharging your batteries.” The Ullswater Boathouse enjoys an idyllic secluded location accessed down a tree lined lane to private grounds well hidden behind gates.

But Ullswater Far Boathouse has a luxury secret!

It is actually located at the far end of the extensive grounds of Leeming Country House Hotel, a luxurious Macdonald Hotel property and restaurant that has been remodeled to a high luxury standard and a wonderful place for weddings and events.

This means that just a short stroll away from the boathouse, the restaurant and facilities of the hotel are available to use.

If you are exploring by car, just a 10 minute drive around Ullswater, you’ll discover the renowned Sharrow Bay Restaurant and Rampsbeck Country House both famous for their spectacular dining experiences with views over Ullswater. The Ullswater Boathouse has recently been refurbished to a luxury standard for guests to visit any time of the year.

About the location

WATERMILLOCK

Pooley Bridge 2.5 miles; Glenridding 6.2 miles; Penrith 8.5 miles.

The elevated scattered village of Watermillock runs parallel to the main road alongside Ullswater Lake and is mainly a farming community. Just 2.5 miles away is Pooley Bridge with its array of amenities which sits on the northern shore of the lake in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley originated due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed. Glenridding (meaning glen overgrown with bracken) is a small tourist village with a range of local shops, cafes and restaurants. There are numerous walks with breathtaking views nearby, plus a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals fascinating Iron-Age remains, whilst the towns of Penrith and Keswick are within driving distance. Watermillock is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
