I was very lucky to stay here back in October 2015. I had always been intrigued to what the most photographed boathouse in the lakes looked like inside. I was completely blown away by its beautiful interior and of course that view. https://adventuresofcumbrianblondie.co.uk/2015/10/20/staycation/
I was so upset when the terrible storms the Lake District experienced in December took its toll on this property. Storm Desmond and his friends completely battering the lakes taking no prisoners. The water swept through the property almost submerging it.
Once things had dried out and the biblical storms halted, the clean up process began. Almost 6 months after the floods and the boathouse was ready for guests. David rang me to say would I like to stay and see the renovation? After I thought about it for about 2 seconds hell yes was the reply.
Julia has done an amazing job with the house. I was running around the house like an excited child looking at all the changes. It was stunning before but the changes in the room plan have taken it to another level.
Amazing attention to detail.
Dinner date was at the locally renovated 1863 Elm House. It’s been completely transformed over the winter. It looks stunning. They had only opened on the previous Saturday.
I had planned on getting up to see the sunrise to reinact this picture I took last time. But the sun rise at this time of year is far too early, even for this early riser! Especially when I only got to bed at 12.30am.
A huge thank you to David for letting us stay here, you have done the most amazing job with the property. I’m completely in love with the place. If you want to stay http://www.lakescottageholiday.co.uk/property/boathouse-duke-of-portland-pooley-bridge-nr-ullswater-21859.htm
Take my word for it you won’t be disappointed.
