Waternook and The Great Barn – Ullswater

Ullswater is considered to be the most beautiful body of water in the Lake District and is the second largest only superseded by Lake Windermere. Its beauty is recognised and authorised by William Wordsworth as his most famous work ‘Daffodils’ was inspired by his trip along Ullswater on the way back to Grasmere with his description of this location still as true today “Ullswater, as being, perhaps, upon the whole, the happiest combination of beauty and grandeur, which any of the Lakes affords”.

The owners, the ones who had the concept to create these unique holiday properties are Paul and Diane Gordon along with their son Dominic. Together they have more than matched the beauty of Ullswater and this very special region of the Lake District with a new business and destination unlike any other within the Lake District National Park.
