“Stunning place to stay”
Reviewed 19 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We've been coming to the Lake District for 30 years and stayed in a tent , a 5 star hotel and everything in between but the far boathouse was the best by far. Glorious views over the lake, peace and tranquility, wonderful accommodation with lots of extra touches from the owner. Champagne, chocolates, roses and a birthday cake. The best place to celebrate an occasion. Truely wonderful. Couldnt have asked for a better place to spend my birthday.

“I really didn't want to leave....”
Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Having been lucky to stay in some exquisite properties all over the world this is my favourite! We got married on Saturday in Martindale - took the Steamer back to Pooley Bridge and then family back to the boat house for champagne and photos. We then had our mini-moon here... the perfect choice. Beautifully designed with exceptional attention to detail. High-quality furnishings and crockery/kitchen equipment which often gets overlooked in a rental was really appreciated. Jayne was so thoughtful and even offered to collect our bags as we waltzed off to the church.. Am just about to book our next visit... can't recommend highly enough! Thank-you

“Heaven on Earth!”

This place is the stuff dreams were made of! The boathouse is simply beautiful and the scenery stunning. Part of me wants to keep it secret - but it's so wonderful it must be shared!
