A GUEST house which appeared on TV show Grand Designs has been named the most romantic getaway by an industry magazine.

Dome House at Windermere was given the prestigious accolade by a panel of expert judges for Luxury BnB Magazine.

Husband and wife duo Joyce and Phil McGuire took over the eco-house in 2016 before opening it as an adult-only boutique guest house the following year.

“We’re just delighted,” said Mrs McGuire.

“To get that recognition from people in the business that are at the top of their game, it’s really nice to get that.

“We were jumping up and down because the most romantic getaway is probably the one you’d want most.

“People come up here and you can see the stress leave their bodies.”

With stunning lake views and a colourful yet cosy design, the house is certainly an ideal place for a romantic trip away.

“We’ve had so many proposals here,” said Mrs McGuire.

“Last year we put in a swing seat because we knew people would want to come and enjoy the garden.

“We’ve got the rose garden there and people can sit and watch the sun go down.”

Guests can also look forward to breakfast delivered to their room if they wish with robes and scattered rose petals.

The couple are now looking forward to re-opening to guests from May 17.

“We’re feeling pretty positive” said Mrs McGuire.

“We’re really looking forward to it.

“Even the dog is missing people pulling into the drive.”
