Britain’s 50 best cottages, beach houses and rural retreats | The Times

Britain’s 50 best cottages, beach houses and rural retreats

The Times yesterday published a list of Britain's 50 best and we are proud to announce that The Boathouse at Knotts End was featured on this list.
Boathouse at Knotts End ranked by The Times as one of the best in Britain
One of Britain's 50 best rural retreats
If your idea of a memorable holiday is relaxing on the most romantic lake in England then look no further, the Boathouse at Knotts End has it all: stunning scenery, 10 acres of woodland and fields and 300 feet of private lake frontage provide guests with seclusion and a real sense of getting away from it all. Knotts End is an ideal honeymoon hideaway and the perfect escape for two at any time of the year.
Should guests tire of the magnificent views, there is plenty to do: take out Knotts End's row boat, cool off with a dip in the lake, or explore the many walking opportunities just outside the front door. Numerous sailing clubs provide water sports activities and the many villages close by offer shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs.


The Boathouse offers spaciously designed open-plan accommodation furnished to an extremely high standard with Chinese and Indonesian antiques and handmade silks.

Duke of Portland Boathouse Wittily Reviewed

Top Notch Review of our Duke of Portland Boathouse

We have just received a very witty but excellent review by Deux Messieur!! Whom, like all of our holiday makers that have stayed at the Boathouse, loved their stay at the Duke of Portland Boathouse in Ullswater. 

The Duke of Portland Boathouse has been voted the best waterside retreat by BBC Country file magazine and its location at the top of Lake Ullswater gives it superb un-paralleled views.

It is one of the most iconic and most photographed and painted buildings in the Lake District, it originally belonged to the 3rd Duke of Portland in the 18th Century.

Its interior design and furnishing provide an ideal honeymoon / romantic break for those seeking to indulge themselves at any time of the year.

So striking is the design it has been featured in the Cumbria Life Magazine.

It really is a special place.

Ullswater Landing Page - Romantic Lake District

Yet another landing page for the Ullswater area in the Lake District National Park. This has been setup to join our other three landing pages for Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere. Keeping the same layout and format as the other three, this should help keep it standardised for guests looking to book self catering cottages in specific areas of the National Park.

You can find this new page at Ullswater Lake District Cottages, once again pass this link on to family and friends to assist them in finding a great cottage holiday for this area of the Lake District. We would also ask that if you like this page, then could you tweet, +1 or like it on facebook.

We hope this will help make your search for a holiday a lot easier and less stressful. 

Look out for more discounts, special deals in further posts, or use our landing pages for AmblesideWindermereGrasmere and now Ullswater to select a superb cottage at really great prices. We will also have some general pictures and interesting news posted as well.
