The ‘super-luxe’ home was included in the ultimate A-list hideaway by the Sunday Times this month.

Guests at this divine, five-star large luxury Lake District cottage on the shores of Ullswater have their very own 26-acres of private grounds and half-a-mile of private access to the beautiful lake.

Plus, hosts with the most can welcome their guests at this private kingdom by yacht or helicopter too.

And, those staying at Waternook don’t just get stunning views, they get social spots galore – the mezzanines, the cinema room and a bar which leads to a terrace with a hot tub overlooking the grounds of the glamorous estate.

And, for a bit more indulgence, guests can relax in their own Spa and Wellness Sanctuary, which features a holistic laconium and a yoga infinity terrace.

Escape, Relax and Indulge in the Lake District

It was all inspired by the owner of Waternook, who bought the home in 2012 with the view to creating one of the most exclusive destinations in the UK where families and friends can come together to escape, relax and indulge. He told us;

“I am over the moon with the news Waternook Lakeside Accommodation received this accolade by The Sunday Times, Waternook lends itself well to the most discerning of get-togethers. It is not just about its private estate, panoramic lake views and luxurious interiors; it offers a totally exclusive experience – which not many homes in the Lake District can offer.”

And, it isn’t just a perfect home for a celebration of up to 20, the owner also provides a luxury concierge service and pulls out the stops to meet the guest’s needs.

“We continuously strive to meet the needs of our guests and whether it be a private chef, firework displays, helicopter charters, or sailing lessons – we are there to make the special happen.”

There’s even a luxury mud-room for pampered pets with underfloor heating and mountain views.


Award-winning Waternook

It’s been a bumper year for Waternook. It was named in the Times top 50 best Lake District cottages in February by The Times.

It won the 2016 Cumbria Tourism Awards for “Best Self Catering” and scooped the best wedding venue and the best luxury self-catering accommodation in the Lux Venue Awards 2016.

“The Lake District is well-known for walking and for its outdoor offerings, which guests can enjoy thoroughly from Waternook.”

“But, some people want to have the beautiful backdrop of the Lakes for a great party too– whether for a wedding or for a special occasion. And, Waternook, surrounded by this magical scenery makes the dinner party, the wedding reception, the family occasion, extra special.”

Lakelovers managing director, Paul Liddell, says: “It is such an amazing property that I am not surprised that it keeps picking up award after award.

It is already regarded as one of the most prestigious self-catering properties, not only in The English Lake District, but most certainly in the British Isles, and it is, therefore, no surprise this magnificent residence has received this accolade.”
