Wow! Fabulous! Stunning! Thank you for creating a true gem and sharing this fabulous home stay. Your hosting is exceptional and we will certainly be back. Two very happy people left the beautiful Dragonwood Boat House because they knew they will return!

Simply wow! The most magical three days of escape and tranquility, and the perfect way to celebrate our 15 years of marriage. We dont want to go back to reality and leave this amazing place. Just what the doctor ordered, every single moment has been special. We would love to come back again, thank you! P.S. the kayaks are great fun.

Everything at Dragonwood Boat House was just as we were hoping it to be, from the welcome hamper, to the beautiful views and complete peace and quiet. Very well equipped home and spotless housekeeping, comfortable bed and magnificent shower.

We recently returned from our honeymoon at Dragonwood Boat House, our stay was fantastic, the facilities were great and the location was a perfect spot to the end of our wedding and reception. We really enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend to our friends and families who can enjoy a lovely getaway!

We had a fabulous time and absolutely loved our stay at Dragonwood Boat House. The property is beautiful, spotlessly clean and in an amazing location. Thank you very much.

Absolutely gorgeous! Stunning property. We had a great time.

What a nice place to stay. We have had wonderful weather and also enjoyed the beautiful views over the little lake. If possible, we will be back soon!

What a beautiful place, it was lovely and relaxing. We enjoyed the hamper, what a treat! We loved watching the wildlife and had a wonderful meal at Wildwood in Oakham. Beautiful log burner too.

Really enjoyed our home here, great place for our mini- moon. Recommend Fox and House as they have great food and friendly staff. Rutland Water is also a must and so is Burghley House. Will miss the geese and their goslings, also the resident hare!

Wow, this is a truely special place. We were not here for long enough to make the best use of it but luckily the sun is out and the little time that we have spent was wonderful. Everything is so well thought out and the welcome hamper was a delight. Thank you for an unforgettably stay!

It has been an absolutely pleasure to be able to have our wedding celebrations at Dragonwood. We have enjoyed every minute of it and the fabulous boat house. I hope that we will return one weekend for a retreat, so goodbye for now and all the best!

An amazing experience! Around here is a food lovers dream. Very sad to be going. It has made my birthday memorable and will look back at this with fond memories!

Dragonwood Boat House is a fantastic house - really beautiful, a real treat. It is very relaxing with the lake view and log fire. The golf buggy was great fun! It´s a lovely area with Oakham, Stamford and Rutland Water being particular highlights. We also visited Sir Isaac Newtons house and saw the apple tree. We enjoyed tasty delicious meals at Fox and Hounds pub in Knossington, King Arms Inn at Wing and Wildwood Kitchen in Oakham - definitely try Fox and Hounds, but remember to book!

We have had such a lovely time and it really is a special place. The house is stunning and exactly what we needed. Thank you so much for such a lovely stay.

We spent a lovely first wedding anniversary (and baby-moon) at Dragonwood Boat House. Beautiful location and superb accommodation; cosy, stylish and well equipped!

I think we came with holiday plans, bu they never quite happened! We have done almost nothing in the most perfect relaxing way. A wonderful place to stay.

5 stars! What a great location, house and area! Very romantic and nice to be away and not to see a soul unless you want to. Perfectly private with great weather. We picked up some meat from the markets and enjoyed a barbecue. A short walk away to the Fox and Hounds which is worth visiting, the food is perfect. Rutland water cycle hire is also well worth a visit for great views with plenty of pubs to choose from. We will remember our time here forever.

Sad day today as we leave Dragonwood Boat House. I knew it would be amazing but it far exceeded my expectations. The attention to detail and the thought you have put into the property is second to none. It is now my number one place on the list of Unique Home Stays properties. Lovely to lie outside relaxing in the summer sun watching the weeping willow sway around and the only sound is the birds or the champagne popping! What a relaxing week...congratulations on getting it so perfect.

It was a pleasure to stay at Dragonwood Boat House, it is such a well thought out and beautifully styled property. All the properties listed seem to be of this standard, which is why I will continue to use Unique Home Stays. Effortless online booking system and great communication throughout.

Dragonwood Boat House was such a perfect place for our little honeymoon. We have been quite happy sitting, relaxing and taking in the view, which is gorgeous. We loved everything and would love to come back soon.

What a beautiful house in such gorgeous surroundings. Dragonwood Boat House is so peaceful and relaxing, and such a wonderful place to stay. Thank you!

Fiver star peace and quiet! There is comfortable seating in the living room and a fabulous bed. What a lovely place to stay. Thank you.

A perfectly peaceful and quiet retreat with a wonderful landscape to relax in. A unique home from home hideaway.

We had a lovely time at Dragonwood Boat House, thank you! It is set in a truly a beautiful location and it is gorgeously designed.

Thank you for letting us enjoy your Boat House, it is absolutely beautiful and we have had a wonderful time.

Thank you for a lovely relaxing break at Dragonwood Boat House. We had a fantastic time, just what the doctor ordered!

What a fantastic stay we have had! Dragonwood Boat House is beautiful with idyllic surroundings - we would never tire of that beautiful view! We would love to come back. Thank you.

Our stay was to celebrate my 30th Birthday and I must say that it is a Birthday that I will never forget. The Boat House and the grounds of Dragonwood provide a unique and romantic experience. The house is stunning and we are sad to be leaving, cant wait to visit again (so I can go in the lake!)

A stunning place, beautifully decorated with plenty of facilities. Fantastic few days in the beautiful country with plenty to do. Weve had a great time, we will be back!

The Boat House was breath-taking; the photographs were WOW but didn´t do it justice. We had a great time locally and everything was fantastic!
