Duke of Portland Boathouse Wittily Reviewed

Top Notch Review of our Duke of Portland Boathouse


We have just received a very witty but excellent review by Deux Messieur!! Whom, like all of our holiday makers that have stayed at the Boathouse, loved their stay at the Duke of Portland Boathouse in Ullswater. 


The Duke of Portland Boathouse has been voted the best waterside retreat by BBC Country file magazine and its location at the top of Lake Ullswater gives it superb un-paralleled views.

It is one of the most iconic and most photographed and painted buildings in the Lake District, it originally belonged to the 3rd Duke of Portland in the 18th Century.

Its interior design and furnishing provide an ideal honeymoon / romantic break for those seeking to indulge themselves at any time of the year.

So striking is the design it has been featured in the Cumbria Life Magazine.

It really is a special place.

Christmas tree for snow leopards - by Marwell Wildlife

Christmas Tree For Snow Leopards


Video courtesy of Marwell Wildlife


These 3 snow leopard cubs joined in the festive spirit when a real Christmas tree was placed in the home. Although only 6 months old, they appear to be very curious about this addition to the foliage in their surroundings.

Mum Irina was the first to make sure it was safe, the cubs only investigated later in the afternoon. The 3 cubs names are Kitana, Kamala and Kadhir (they were named by public vote from 1,400 submitted names).

Enjoy the video.
