The Boathouse has amazing views and a great location. The owners were friendly and helpful. I found its location to Launceston ideal.

Reviewed by Russell, 16th February 2019

This was our 4th time at this cottage. However we have found that this cottage is in need of some work, for instance the lounge area needs attention. There is no doubt that the lounge offers stunning views across the lakes, but the recliner chair of the settee needs to be looked at as does the individual recliner chair. Neither work as they should.Read more The bedroom and en suite are ok. Location wise this cottage is ideal. Altogether, an average holiday but could be a lot better........ Hide

Wonderful little cottage, beautiful location. Perfect for relaxing and unwinding.

Reviewed by Peter, 15th September 2018

The only down side was the fact that the lakes were very weeded, and so limited the amount of fishing I could do ! But on the whole, the farm met our every need.
