Exclusive, super-luxury accommodation on a private lakefronting estate


5 Star opulence on lake Ullswater, The Waternook Estate is quite simply outstanding and luxurious in every way, probably the most prestigious super luxury self catering experience with luxury concierge services in the British Isles. Exclusively yours this magnificent private estate situated in the heart of The Lake District National Park comprises two 17th Century properties of presidential luxury: Waternook, accommodating 12 guests, and The Great Barn, accommodating 8 guests. The Lake District was been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site on Sunday 9 July 2017. It now joins other wonders of the world like the Taj Mahal, The Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu with the status. 

Both residences occupy a sublime, secluded setting within 26 acres of private grounds with ½ mile of lake shoreline, commanding simply breathtaking uninterrupted panoramic views of lake Ullswater and the surrounding mountains. 

Exclusive use of the estate includes these highlights: boathouse and jetty; private cinema; Spa and Wellness Sanctuary featuring a Laconium and bar leading out onto an infinity terrace with hot tub and views over Ullswater; fully fitted outdoor kitchens and barbecue terraces, outdoor lakeview dining and function suite with Minstrel's Gallery in The Lake Room, perfect to indulge your special celebration, intimate wedding reception or luxury conference.

Leave aside the 'million dollar views and setting' for a moment and stroll through Waternook and The Great Barn - their sleek sophisticated interior styling and perfectionist attention to detail ensures that these super-luxury self-catering homes will inspire even the most discerning guest.

Whether you are celebrating a happy event, searching for the perfect setting for an intimate wedding reception or just spending time with your favourite people, here is a magical treat delivering sheer luxury on a presidential scale matching your high expectations.

Both residences have won numerous prestigious awards including a VisitEngland 5 Star Gold Award, Winner of the Condé Nast Johansens Award for Excellence, a VisitEngland ROSE Award for Service Excellence [an award that can only be won once] and won the 2016 Cumbria Tourism Awards. See our full list of awards.

To complement your stay, our luxury self-catering accommodation offers an array of luxury concierge services suited to the most discerning of guests. These range from private chefs and butlers to beauty treatments, personalised yoga lessons, sailing lessons and helicopter tours. You can opt to self cater, add on only the services you want or go full service with your own private chef and maid. Please contact us to discuss your personal needs.
