Holiday - Dream or Reality

I'm looking for a holiday setting that i'm unsure exists in the UK, so i'm reaching out for anyone that may know of a place.

I'm looking for a cabin/hot tub/ with lake mooring that you can take the rib and preferably no speed restriction so can use for fishing/skiing etc?

Anyone have any ideas? Group of about 8 of us looking to rent somewhere for a long weekend away. Could also look at costal areas, id want something where i can launch the boat and leave it for the week. If costal, preferably sheltered and where the tides arent a nightmare.

Anywhere in the UK considered

Finger crossed!

Cheers

Tom

Hi, I recently had a great 5 days at Ardlui Retreat, Loch Lomond. Lodges or House for 3 days or longer stays. Big Hot tub in it's own cabin plus an indoor BBQ hut. Guests have free use of the slip and pontoons/jetty while staying. Hotel at the Marina does good food too.

There are 3 holiday places at the head of loch tay around Kenmore all worth investigating.
We also used to holiday at Pentewan sands in Cornwall beautiful area on its own sheltered beach with tractor launch facilities mainly caravans but they had a few chalets too,worth looking into

Round Island Cottages - Holiday on your own private island in Poole Harbour - no hot tub but a VERY large lake (Harbour!). Probably booked up for this year as its popular and they only have four houses and a cabin but you can take your rib and the water ski area is just around the corner.

This wee place is awesome :-)
Bit of trek up there but well worth it. Good local pub, fantastic scenery and great ribbing.
