Some friends and I spent one night at Waternook on the way south from Scotland. It is very convenient for the M6, being only 20 minutes from the junction, and is in a lovely situation overlooking the lake.

My (now fiance) booked Waternook for us so that he could propose!!! Dominic went above and beyond and helped him plan the whole thing to perfection. He put the Champagne at the end of the jetty in time for sunset and the impending proposal, he helped make the whole experience magical!! I cannot rave about both Dominic and Waternook enough,...

Our room was very clean and...

We stayed at Waternook, and thoroughly enjoyed every single moment! The location is absolutly superb, in fact could not be any better! With great walks in every direction. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds were the best we've ever slept in, with a beautiful view of the lake. The breakfast was cooked to perfection, and was a delicious...
