Tucked away in the Vale of Grasmere, this luxurious holiday home is perfectly located for exploring the beauty and tranquility of the Lake District. You'll have stunning views from every window with spectacular fells in all directions and the River Rothay flowing nearby. The house has been built on the footprint of a Victorian glass vine house, once part of a walled fruit and vegetable garden for the hotel nearby. Exotic grape varieties were grown here with the sun streaming through the south-facing windows of the vine house. It has now been transformed into a home, perfect for families or groups of friends looking for a quiet, luxurious retreat in the heart of the Lake District. You'll find Rowan at Grasmere at the end of a private lane with a bridge that takes you over the River Rothay. Once through the entrance gate, head up the Lakeland slate path to find the house with the rugged fells rising up behind it. There's plenty of space for your walking gear in the porch and then you can make your way through to the cosy interior. The kitchen, dining area and sun lounge are all spaces perfect for socialising. Whip up feasts using the contemporary, fully-equipped kitchen, and gather around the dining table to enjoy delicious meals together with views of the fells and crags. If you fancy eating outdoors and making the most of the scenery, step through the French doors and straight onto the south-facing terrace. After dinner, head into the comfortable and inviting living room, complete with a beautiful fireplace made of Lakeland slate and equipped with a wood-burning stove. Curl up on the sofas upholstered with Scottish Harris Tweed wool and enjoy a movie night or simply relax and unwind with a book while the fire crackles in the background. The living space also features two upholstered cushioned armchairs which can swivel so you can get comfy and take in the fell views. There are three double bedrooms, all with their own luxurious ensuite bathrooms, pocket-sprung mattresses and HD smart TVs. You'll find bathrobes and fluffy towels waiting for you on the bathroom radiators, along with underfloor heating to keep you toasty on colder days. Outside, the landscaped garden has been designed to frame the spectacular scenery. Sit out at any time of year and enjoy the inspiring view and you'll discover why this was the perfect spot for a Victorian vine house. There's plenty of outdoor furniture for relaxing and dining alfresco when the sun is shining and low level lighting creates plenty of ambiance in the evenings. The fantastic location means that you have some of the Lake District's best walks and scenic spots right at your doorstep. Whether you're a keen rambler or you'd prefer to explore some of the area's charming towns and villages, Grasmere is a great starting point. Begin with a trip into the village for a cup of tea and to try the famous Grasmere Gingerbread, then venture out to explore the breathtaking landscapes by strolling around the lake. If you're feeling adventurous, tackle a famous walk such as Helm Crag or Loughrigg Fell. Helvellyn and the Langdale mountains are also nearby for those seeking more challenging hikes and the rewards of spectacular views.

    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.

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.
