The Sharrow Bay Hotel sits on the edge of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District. Sedley Place were appointed to propose a new boathouse on the water to provide a spa and luxury suite facility.

Cut off and divorced from the land by a floating timber wall the boathouse is all about its connection with the water and the spectacular views across the lake. A re-working of a traditional boathouse, the design uses timber, glass and slate to blend with the landscape.

While working at Sedley Place, Alex Jones was Project Architect of the project.
