Alone at last: the world's 10 most remote getaways © Copyright

The Lake District is awash with serene landscapes and diverse wildlife, making it the perfect destination for a quiet break. It was the site of inspiration for many of the most celebrated romantic poets in history - Wordsworth, Colderidge, Southey - and to this day remains an area of unspoiled natural beauty, and one of the UK's top attractions. The Boathouse at Knotts End is located on the western shores of Ullswater in the northeast, away from any prying eyes or noisy cars. With its own private stretch of waterfront - and complimentary rowing boat - the 19th century boathouse offers guests the ideal countryside hideaway. The self-catered lodge is furnished with a contemporary yet traditional feel, and is well-equipped with all the essential amenities: DVD player, Nespresso machine, walking maps. Hidden away from the outside world by its leafy green surroundings, guests may just find they never want to leave...
