The Bothy, a romantic hideaway for two, is situated next to Aira Beck in the village of Dockray in The Lake District. With walks straight onto the fells, down to the beautiful Aira Force and Ullswater it's an ideal base for walkers.

The Bothy is not self catering but equivalent to a 5* hotel bedroom. Inside The Bothy there is a lounge area with sofa, mini fridge, kettle, Nespresso and TV. The property is warmed with under floor heating and also has a log stove to add to the romantic mood!

Really cosy place to stay in a great location very near Ullswater and Aira Force waterfall. Helen was really responsive and gave us loads of useful information and tips for the local area as well as some lovely local gin! Highly recommended!!

Beautifully presented little place, just a short walk from Aira Falls and short drive from the lake. Helen made sure we had everything we needed including extra special treats and lots of guidance. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Ullswater.

We loved the Bothy. It was so cute and in the perfect location leading onto many fell walks. Helen was lovely and got back to me so quickly. She also provided a thorough info pack and the added cute touches on check in were fab! We will definitely be staying again

The photos and descriptions are very accurate, it really is 5*, lovely bathroom, cosy bed and lovely touches such as a happy birthday message and champagne. So cosy and a great location in the north lakes

I would very highly recommend a stay in the beautiful Bothy. Small but perfect for a couples retreat for a long weekend. Cosy and in a beautiful location that is remote but still not difficult to reach by car. Lots of fantastic walks from the Bothy itself so you don't…
