Visit the Lake District and Stay in a Boathouse

Ullswater Far Boathouse

amazing. booked for my parents and they can’t stop talking about it, it’s a privilege to be able to stay somewhere like this ✨

This opportunity to stay in a boathouse comes with a huge lake on your doorstep. Situated in Ullswater, this boathouse has forest on either side and it’s very own jetty. Billed as a romantic getaway, this is one luxurious boat house that you don’t want to miss out on – especially not with a five star rating.

About the Boathouse

This is the ideal spot for a romantic getaway. Stay for a night or two to enjoy what other reviewers call an intimate setting with views for days. If you’ve ever wished you could afford a lake house, then this is your chance to test one out for a few days. Enjoy the privacy of that self-check-in and spend that time with your SO, enjoying life and relaxing by your own lake. The wildlife is right on your doorstep here and there are plenty of hikes to go on to enjoy the area further. We would recommend this place for drivers. It is a little tucked away for public transport. All the more secluded to eat you with. Or something.

A Bit About Airbnb

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned. 

Why Choose Airbnb

Traveling with Airbnb is a far more intimate experience than traveling and staying in hotels. Choices in accommodation range from high-end luxury to budget friendly. the locations offered span the entire world, with city breaks and country stays available. You can stay with Airbnb hosts here in the UK or you can stay with them when you travel abroad. 9 times out of 10, your experience will be more affordable than other accommodation might be.
