Lakes Boathouse

Lakes Boathouse

Lakes Boathouse


Lakes Boathouse is situated on the West shore of Lake Windermere within the grounds and gardens of Fellborouh Cottage.

The property is surrounded by idyllic countryside and is situated between Far Sawrey and Graythwaite.

Once through the main gates, Lakes Boathouse has its own drive, with parking for two cars. Guests have the use of two dedicated garden areas, a lakeshore picnic area with a fire pit, and if required a jetty to moor a small boat.

Lakes Boathouse is a traditional lakeside timber construction built in the early 1900’s to facilitate the storage of boats out of the water. A large proportion of this boathouse has been completely redesigned to create the most up to date accommodation of the highest quality, whilst incorporating the welcoming atmosphere of a comfortable home.

Lakes Boathouse is suitable for four people and consists of two bedrooms, one with king size bed and one with twin beds, two en-suite shower rooms, a spacious living room with open plan kitchen and dining, and a laundry/drying room. Lakes Boathouse has an American lodge atmosphere, furnished with antique oak furniture, and a log fire that gives a cosy, warm feel during the winter months.

All the rooms have views of Lake Windermere and the fells beyond, one bedroom has its own balcony directly over the lake, where swans, ducks and ducklings swim peacefully below, and there is an outdoor terrace overlooking the lake, for outdoor eating.

There are several pubs nearby, including the Cuckoo Brow Inn at Far Sawrey which is an easy walk from Lakes Boathouse, The Tower Bank Arms at Near
Sawrey, and the famous Drunken Duck at Barngates, all serving local Ales and locally sourced Cumbrian food. In addition, The Lakeside Hotel and The Swan
at Newby Bridge, are a fifteen-minute drive. Further afield, but no more than a 40-minute drive are numerous Michelin Starred restaurants.
