While many visitors have marvelled at the shopping or taken advantage of the drive through Costa Coffee, many people might not have noticed our brand new meeting and events space overlooking the lake that forms the heart of the Rushden Lakes development.
The Boathouse is a brand new facility that houses not only canoeing company Canoe 2, but also a bustling retail shop and a dedicated meeting room and events space right on the waterfront. Designed as a ‘Net Zero Energy’ Building the space is super-insulated with all required energy for operation generated on-site. The building also features a wildflower roof consisting of local grass and wildflower species native to the area
The Boathouse is an incredibly exciting space for us as it has allowed us to open up the water and the facilities to a really diverse group of people locally; everyone from the Scouts and Sea Cadets to House of Fraser and East Northants Council have made use of the space for a really wide range of activities.
The space features high-speed internet and 70-inch AV screen, as well dedicated access, changing facilities and even a brand new top of the line kitchen; making it an ideal (and eye-catching) choice for events and meetings up to 60 people.
We’re very excited about what 2018 holds for this space. Our role as the custodians of the meeting room, and the water here at Rushden Lakes is one we take very seriously and we are very happy to be becoming a bigger part of the local community.
Businesses are of course a very big part of that and we really look forward to working with more local businesses through the year. Its most definitely a room with a view here – but we definitely think it has a lot more offer than that!”
