The “super-luxe” home on the shores of Ullswater is in the ultimate A-list of the best self-catering holiday providers of the year.

The 10-bedroom Waternook Estate is one of three finalists in VisitEngland’s 2017 Awards for Excellence. The Waternook Estate will now go head-to-head with 2 other homes in the East Midlands and Yorkshire.

An Impressive Holiday Home

You can see why Waternook has impressed.
Guests at Waternook enjoy the privacy of 26 acres and half-a-mile of private beach line. They can even arrive by helicopter.

The owner bought the impressive home in 2012 and wanted to transform Waternook into one of the most exclusive destinations in the UK.


He hoped for it to be a place where families and friends can come together to escape, relax, and indulge.
It is an exciting time for the holiday let – recently named in the top 12 in Great Britain by the Sunday Times.
