This gorgeous converted barn for two is spacious, luxurious and utterly charming. With Scandinavian style open plan living, wonderful attention to detail and a beguiling garden with riverside seating, it's the perfect escape for couples seeking a peaceful retreat in beautiful surroundings.

The open plan living area is a great place to drop your bags and pour a celebratory welcome drink. The room is flooded with light thanks to the floor to ceiling gable end bi-fold doors, and as you settle in you can enjoy the view of the stunning garden and river. A cosy corner sofa, deep leather armchair, fluffy rug, stylish art and toasty wood burner make this space feel like home from home. Settle in and watch a movie or just relax with snacks and drinks and marvel at your surroundings.

The kitchen is sleek, modern, stylish and fully equipped for cooking romantic meals for two to be enjoyed at the dining table by the riverside window. On warm evenings the stable door leads straight out onto the alfresco dining patio where you can while away the evening by candlelight. After dinner you might like to take your coffee down to the bench by the river and stargaze before bed.

When it's time to sleep, the luxurious bedroom offers everything you could need for a restful night. High quality Egyptian linens and plush pillows will envelope you and when you wake you can laze in bed with the built-in surround sound Sonos and Sky TV to entertain you.

Rise in the morning and refresh yourself in the fabulous concrete ensuite beneath the rainfall shower, whilst your towel and robe keep warm and fluffy on the heated towel rails. Underfloor heating will take care of your toes!

Head to the kitchen for the first cup of coffee and if the weather is clement stroll down to the bench by the river and sit in peaceful tranquility with the sun on your face. The patio is perfect for alfresco dining and if its a little chilly you can light the outdoor wood burner and settle at the big table under cover in great comfort.

When it's time to explore there are plenty of lovely pubs within walking distance including the award-winning Mason Arms at Strawberry Bank, only 400m away, and the cosy Hare & Hounds only 150m away! Fine dining can be enjoyed at Simon Rogan's iconic 'L'Enclume' or the Gilpin Spice (you may have seen it on the 'Great British Menu' TV show).

For days out you can hire a boat (rowing or power) and explore the lake. Or simply take a cruise on one of the elegant Lake Windermere Steamers, a charming way to see the area.

    • 3 nights Min Stay

    Tucked away down a private lane, hidden by trees and sitting on the lakeside, Far Boathouse is an idyllic hideaway perfect for a romantic couple who love the water. Unlike many boathouses this one has the luxury of being on the larger side and is rather luxurious. Dispense with your coats in the hallway and make your way in to the cosy open plan living area. The first thing that will strike you is the view. A large, plump comfy sofa and armchair sit facing bi-folding glass doors providing an uninterrupted view of the beautiful lake with the Cumbrian hills framing it in the distance. You might want to just crack open a bottle, turn on the pretty electric fire and settle in to watch the sky change over the water. The interior has been thoughtfully decorated to provide a cosy nook with everything you could need to burrow in and leave the world behind. The kitchen is fully equipped for the creation of wonderful feasts and the hosts have kindly provided a wine cooler to keep things extra civilised. Enjoy a long, lazy supper at the unique marble dining table which seats four. Afterwards you can snuggle up and watch a movie, perhaps crack open the monopoly, chess or dominoes, or maybe just get back to that view. You'll sleep deeply and peacefully in the comfortable king size bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton bedding and in the morning you can watch the news from the comfort of your duvet on the Sony TV. The bathroom has a unique driftwood style and a double sized shower with plenty of hot water where you can make use of all the complimentary toiletries before wrapping yourself up in a big fluffy bathrobe and heading into the kitchen for coffee. Open the balcony door and step out on to the fabulous decked balcony, settle at the table and enjoy your breakfast as the sail boats glide by. The boathouse comes with private mooring so you can hire a kayak, canoe or boat from a nearby supplier and they will deliver and collect it for you. What a wonderful way to start the day, gliding along on the water with a flask of coffee and your camera to hand. Situated just three miles from Pooley Bridge where you'll find three very welcoming pubs and the fabulous Chestnut House which has a “gin wall’ of over 400 different gins, as well as lots of other spirits, liqueurs, beers and local produce. Perfect if you want to pick up a gift or two! If you're in the market for some fine dining make reservations at 1863, an award-winning restaurant which offers a seven-course tasting menu. For independent shops, plenty of great eateries, head over to nearby Penrith and submerge yourself in the foodie culture. There's also a great farmer's market where you can stock up on local goodies. Whether you choose to have a picnic by the lake or head back to your retreat and watch the stars from the comfort of your lakeside balcony, you'll never want to leave this wonderful boathouse.

    Found in a secluded spot between the Lake District and the Scottish border, the Hidden River Cabins are large and luxurious – perfect for getting away to rural Cumbria in style. Make your choice from five incredible log-built lodges in peaceful surroundings, each sleeping between six and ten guests. On the banks of the River Lyne, these eco-friendly cabins sit comfortably amongst nature. Each cabin is kept cosy with a combination of solar power and a wood-burning stove. The countryside setting makes them the perfect place for pets to unwind too, so it’s a real plus that dogs are welcome at each of the Hidden River Cabins. All cabins are equipped with a hot tub looking out over the river, and an outdoor seating area for dining and relaxing. There are three cabins which sleep six: Roe Deer, Otterstone and Kingfisher, which feature two double bedrooms and a sofa-bed. All have that unmistakable log cabin ambience, from the modern bathroom to the fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area, complete with TV and DVD. Two larger cabins, Bluebell and Foxglove, add a pair of twin rooms to the mix, making them ideal for groups of up to ten. Two of the bedrooms have a TV and these two cabins benefit from the luxury of underfloor heating. If you fancy getting social around a barbecue when the weather is fine, you can rent one for the duration of your stay at any of the cabins. From the great fishing location of the Otterstone cabin to Kingfisher’s elevated river view, every one of these lodges is in a beautiful position. They’re all kitted out with luxury bed linens, duvets and logs for the wood burner, so all you need do is turn up and make yourself comfortable. Hidden River Cabins lie around 11 miles from the city of Carlisle and even closer to the edge of the magnificent Kielder Forest Park which stretches to the border of England and Scotland. Exploring the best of the borders is easy, with the likes of Gretna Green, Carlisle Castle and the Solway Coast not far away. The area is great for all kinds of activities too, from paintballing to flying and 4x4 off-roading… or perhaps you would prefer the simple pleasures of walks in the woods or down by the river. Be sure to drop by the Hidden River Café too, where there is always something tasty being cooked up, whatever the time of day.

    Experience the magical ruggedness of the Lake District from the comfort of this peaceful and luxurious B&B. Choose from one of six stunning rooms - all stylish, luxurious, comfortable and cosy. It's the perfect space to hunker down and take in the spectacular surroundings or return to after long days hiking the trails. Each is named Lake District-appropriate, from Fell to Tarn to Herdwick, and, while they all share wonderful views and high-standards of luxury and comfort, the room interiors are as different as the names. And while the decor and layout may differ, each room is ensuite with oodles of hot water, gorgeous complimentary smellies and fluffy towels and bathrobes. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer wonderful views of the surroundings and underfloor heating and sheepskin rugs ensure visitors are cosy throughout their stay. Wake to the sun's rays gently warming the face and the sound of the birds beginning their day. Make a morning coffee courtesy of the handy Nespresso machine (kettles are also provided for those hankering after a proper cuppa), hop back into bed, or settle into the comfy armchairs and watch the weather roll over before heading to breakfast. After demolishing a hearty breakfast, guests are fully-fuelled for a day exploring the tarns, fells, lakes and pubs of this breathtaking national park. Guests share a large, comfortable lounge where they can kick off their boots (there is a handy drying room), relax with a drink from the honesty bar, swap tales with other travellers or spend some quiet time reading and enjoying the tranquility of their surroundings. There are plenty of activities to keep guests busy. Apart from exploring the Lakes and Fells, there are Roman Forts, steam railways and the pretty harbour town of Whitehaven, a great spot to grab dinner. After a day exploring, return for a romantic evening under the stars, glass of bubbly in-hand, looking out at the starlit sky and making plans for the next day.
