“What a wonderful stay we have had. It has been 30 years since we visited this part of the world and what a pleasure it has been to return.

Finding The Boat House was indeed the best part of our trip. Like others before us this house is somewhere that feels like home the moment you come through that wonderful front door.” Guest Book, May 2022

“Boat House, you have been amazing!  What a privilege to spend the most wonderfully relaxing week here. The setting, interior, breathtaking scenery, activities and fresh air will be unforgettable!” Guest Book, August 2021

“Wow, what can we say about this house.  It is truly luxurious in every sense.  We have had a wonderful time.  Unlike many other houses of this age and size, The Boathouse has a real feeling of warmth and it is as inviting as it is beautiful.  Perfectly located and updated with such respect to what it is.  We cannot imagine a more stunning house, in a more stunning setting.  Simply perfect.  James and Amy, you both made it so easy from booking to our stay – thank you!  See you in 2020.”  Guest Book, December 2019
