  • “The view from the boat house is the real selling point, waking up to that for the last week was breath taking.”

    The boat house was clean and well equipped. The downside was the narrow spiral stair case, it was very difficult to get luggage up and down the stairs and it wasn’t practical when needing the loo in the night, the open plan layout meant you had to put one of the big lights on so you could safely get down the stairs to the bathroom. Also now we are heading in to the winter months and the water is becoming quite choppy, we spent most nights awake from the kayak banging against the sides ...

    The boat house was clean and well equipped. The downside was the narrow spiral stair case, it was very difficult to get luggage up and down the stairs and it wasn’t practical when needing the loo in the night, the open plan layout meant you had to put one of the big lights on so you could safely get down the stairs to the bathroom. Also now we are heading in to the winter months and the water is becoming quite choppy, we spent most nights awake from the kayak banging against the sides underneath us in the boat dock. Overall we did have a great time and the views are breathtaking taking, based on the staircase and the huge price inflation for the same dates next year, it’s unlikely we would go back.
