    • 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.

    Stay Lambing Live is a sumptuously converted barn surrounded by atmospheric moorland, gorgeous rolling hillsides and quaint stone villages. The interior of this property showcases the beautiful limestone that this area is famous for - from the handcrafted tiles in the hallway and bathrooms, to an impressive stone fireplace in the lounge. Beautiful raw materials and skilled workmanship really shine throughout this property, setting this exquisite barn in a league of its own. Set on a 400 acre farm, you are warmly welcomed to roll up your sleeves and get involved with life on the farm. Help feed the animals up on the moors or even experience lambing first-hand. And the owners (and their sheep) have celebrity status after featuring on BBC’s Lambing live! If you’d rather admire the farm from the comfort of one of the plush sofas, then that’s fine too. Whichever route you take, this property is a pastoral dream come true. The charming limestone tile flooring in the hallway gives you a glimpse of the incredible quality of workmanship in this property. And with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor you can be assured of a warm welcome. The three double en suite bedrooms all have large luxurious beds, soft linens and handsome oak furniture. In a lovely nod to the farm's livelihood, there are beautiful 100% wool carpets and soft woollen blankets. The luxury bathrooms are all finished to a very high standard and come complete with fluffy towels and gorgeous handmade soaps from the Sedbergh Soap Company. Upstairs you will find a bright and airy open-plan living area and with oak flooring throughout, this barn simply oozes quality. The kitchen, with its handcrafted units, granite worktop and Rangemaster cooker is a real show stopper. Set next to a large oak dining table, it’s a wonderfully sociable space that's great for family dinners. For those wanting a moment of calm, carry on through the kitchen to a delightful little snug. The living room is a relaxing space with a spectacular limestone fireplace and wood burning stove. Large cream and duck egg blue sofas invite you to sit down and relax next to the fire. And with a television and well-stocked bookshelf, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained. Although with such magnificent panoramic views, you may just be content gazing out of the window. Out in the garden there’s oak garden furniture, a fire pit and BBQ - perfect for summertime evenings with friends and family. In the immediate local area there are breathtaking walks for all levels - from riverside strolls to hikes across the moors. The local market town of Kirkby Stephens is even Cumbria’s first ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town. With delightful cafes, great pubs and plentiful farmer’s markets dotted around, it’s a magnificent area to explore. And with the Lake District just ten minutes down the road, you have two National Parks to choose from.

You'll have stunning views from every window with spectacular fells in all directions and the River Rothay flowing nearby.
