The shoreline property sleeps 12 on the banks of Ullswater - the country’s second largest lake - and is home to a hot tub and cinema." - The Metro (September, 2017)
This exclusive luxurious retreat is situated on the banks of Ullswater with half a mile of private shoreline, and breathtaking views of the lakes and fells. Relax in the hot tub on the decked veranda, enjoy a movie in the private cinema or stroll through the 26-acre estate.
This 17th-century property is perfect for families or friends, and small intimate wedding receptions. It’s been lovingly decorated to an amazingly high specification with stunning artwork from a famous, local artist adorning the walls, and every facility you could wish for. With six luxury en-suite bedroom suites, all with sumptuous, high-end beds and sunken iPods, and large open plan living spaces, every detail has been thought of. The property was awarded the Visit England Rose Award for Service Excellence in 2018.
The luxury doesn’t stop there either; you can also take advantage of your very own Laconium spa, with impressive twinkle star lighting and idyllic lake views, designed to leave you feeling truly relaxed and rejuvenated. Afterwards, treat yourself to a glass of bubbly from the bar and wander through the full-length doors onto the infinity terrace where you can sink into the hot tub and watch the sensational views as the sun sets over the lake. To make your stay even more relaxing, there is a wide range of concierge services from a private chef and butler to sailing or yoga lessons, and helicopter tours over the beautiful Lake District.
Two pets are welcome at Waternook, and this property takes the meaning of pampered pooch to a whole new level. The cleverly designed ‘dog room’ provides the perfect location for wet dogs to enjoy an afternoon doze as they dry off after a fun-filled walk in the surrounding lakes and fells. It’s equipped with cosy underfloor heating and snuggly dog beds are available on request. There’s even stable doors looking into the adjacent rooms so your pets can still see what the rest of the family are up to.
You can arrive by car with ample parking, by boat with a private mooring or by helicopter with your own helipad. For those travelling from further afield, you can fly to Carlisle airport from a selection of UK airports, which is situated just an hour from the property; the choice really is yours.
The English Lake District has such sublime scenery it has inspired the romantic poets throughout the ages. Ullswater is the second largest lake and is regarded as the most beautiful, stretching a total of 8 miles. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, the area is home to some of the UK’s rarest species including the red squirrel, the peregrine falcon and the red deer.
