Haddon Lake Boathouse is tucked away in the glorious 2-acre grounds of Haddon Lake House, voted one of the country’s finest gardens in the television series 'I Own Britain’s Best Home & Garden'.
With shared gardens and stunning lake, this beautifully converted detached single-storey barn enjoys a superb elevated location, with gently sloping path access. The property has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and can sleep up to three guests. (Regret no guests under 16 yrs for reasons of insurance due to unfenced lake.)
Recently and stylishly converted, the Boathouse offers all the comforts of home inside, and outside a private terrace, deck and furniture. Guests are encouraged to use all the gardens and grounds as if they were their own! Further information on the gardens, including many pictures under ‘Garden Galleries’, can be found on our website: www.lakehousedesign.co.uk.
The Boathouse is at the heart of this outstanding award-winning Victorian garden that has also been featured in national magazines including Homes & Gardens.
