Yvette Huddleston and Walter Swan in that shed champion among newspapers The Daily Telegraph report on the Duke of Portland's Boathouse, Ullswater, which is now up for sale at a smidgeon under £500,000. Described as "one of Cumbria's architectural treasures" it has, remarkably, been granted permission by the Lake District National Park authority for the upper storey to be used as a dwelling for permanent or holiday occupancy. The property comes with its own access to the water (plus fishing rights), a wind turbine, and is currently being renovated to be used as a holiday let/home. Rather nice.
