Boden Howe is perfectly situated on a peaceful, elevated terrace with uninterrupted views of the town and fells. There is no vehicular access to the property but this adds to the uniqueness of the house. Outdoor seating is provided both at the front and rear of the house and private parking for three cars is available nearby. A complimentary leisure pass is provided for use at the Salutation Hotel and Spa less than 100 yds away.

Boden Howe is stylishly furnished and maintained to a high standard and comprises of three bedrooms; one super king en-suite, one double and one single. The first floor lounge has exceptional views over the town to the surrounding fells as does the dining room on the ground floor with doors opening through to the large kitchen. A family bathroom is located on the first floor. A large sloping garden is located at the rear of the property with an attractive level patio area facing west towards the Rydal valley.

Short breaks (4 night minimum) are available during January and February (excluding February half terms) and we are happy to accept last minute short breaks during other seasons (from £130 per night depending on season).

A wonderful base for our Lakes holiday

By Julia Wells on 07-Jun-2024

A truly beautiful house in a quiet position with Ambleside's facilities within a few minutes walk. Extremely comfortable, very well presented with everything we needed - including the wonderful views! The care, thought and attention is obvious, it's the best property we've ever stayed in. Thank you Helen and Steve, I'm sure we'll be back.

Home away from home

By David Morrison on 05-May-2023

Boden Howe was a ‘home away from home’ for us - had everything we needed, lovely décor, very central, lovely views, ideal for extended family to join us for the celebration of the Coronation. Lots of local information provided, so we did some of the ‘recommended’ walks – fell in love with the Lake District! Excellent hosts. We hope to return, and would happily recommend it.

Exceeds all expectations

By Kathleen and Erwin Boyce Mueller on 22-Apr-2023

We prefer direct communication with the owners. We received clear details of our rental and answered all our questions with confidence. She met us at the townhouse herself and showed us through the exceptionally luxurious rooms and facilities. Helen and Steve promptly answered any question during our stay. Always there for their guests. The views from both the front and rear windows are breathtaking. Lush flower gardens in the rear as well as a beautiful patio among the gardens solely for our use made us feel it was our home and property. The windows on all 3 floors at the front of the home look over the fells surrounding Ambleside. The house is raised above the main streets and so the views are uninterrupted and the peace and quiet are exceptional. All bedrooms have side tables, closets and dressers. Bed linens are top of the line cotton, pillows comfy and mattresses are top quality. Blinds as well are tasteful and double lined to give privacy and shuts out the light. Two gas fireplaces in the dining room and the upper living room. Cozy furniture and tasteful paintings and decorative details. The kitchen is fully equipped in every detail. Top of the line appliances and freezer as well as separate fridge, pantry and a washing machine in the cellar. Dishes, pots and pans, dish towels are high quality and plentiful. Large dining room seating 6 overlooking the fells and forests surrounding Ambleside. Tesco supermarket is steps from the front door. The townhouse is a 5 minute walk to the Ambleside bus depot in town for buses to every corner of the Lake District. Sports stores, good restaurants and pubs, superb butcher, beautiful church, clothing stores, bookstores, art galleries, souvenir shops are all for your pleasure in town. The icing on the cake is the access to the neighbouring European spa and pool located in a high end international hotel. Dry sauna, steam room, indoor and outdoor jacuzzi, large indoor pool and plentiful lounges. Just perfect to unwind at the end of a long day. Many people return on a yearly basis and we will return as well. It is a chance to experience home away from home in England. Especially in the heart of the Lake District in all its stunning hiking trails, many right from your very doorstep.
