Right on the shores of Lake Windermere

There can be few more idyllic locations in the Lake District than this stunning boathouse right on the shores of Lake Windermere in the heart of the Pullwood Bay Estate. Built in the 19thC this charming detached boathouse was once used by the owners of the original mansion house, now it has been beautifully renovated with all modern facilities and everything you need for your holiday enjoyment.

Perfect for your honeymoon, or any other special occasion, or even just for a treat – this is truly a place to relax, unwind and take in the beautiful surroundings. If you are looking to get away to somewhere truly special then we are sure you will love The Boathouse.

    Is there any flexibility on pets? We have a small very clean and well behaved cocopoo.

    Best wishes

    • Hello Mr. Gauller,

      I’m sorry but we do not make exceptions to our ‘no pets’ policy as we don’t feel we could come up with a fair way to allow some pets but not others.

      Within the Pullwood Bay estate, there is Curlew Close and Fieldside that offer pet friendly accommodation or, please feel free to look on Lakeland Retreats’ own website for other dog-friendly cottages in the lakes.

      If you have any other queries, please let us know.

      All the best from the Lakeland Retreats team.
