WOW! WHAT A FIND!

  • 5 out of 5
From the minute we arrived, we were blown away by the location and view. The boathouse really is a unique place to stay and a lot bigger than we though! We were three couples who meet up once a year and this trip certainly topped the list!

The personal touches from Helen were lovely and it really made us feel at home. I would urge anyone who is looking at this to go ahead and experience it! I have already sent on the details to numerous friends and family.

WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS ON THE LAKE

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful Christmas break at Walkers Boat House. The property was beautifully appointed and immaculately clean. Our stay was trouble free, from start to finish. A nice touch was the welcome pack - which was the best we have ever come across.

The balcony has direct views on to the lake, with easy walks nearby. The location is ideal for exploring. Bowness and Windermere are close by, with lots of nice facilities and eateries.

I would unreservedly recommend Walkers Boat House and the service provided by Helen. We hope to return.

LAKE DISTRICT LUXURY ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 out of 5
A fantastic place to stay. A quiet location with beautiful views and only a short easy walk from Bowness. Little touches that make this a home away from home. We did not have a car with us but found it easy to use taxis to get to and from Windermere Station. It was absolute bliss being able to come back to this idyllic setting each evening. The boat house restaurant is up the road and it was only a short easy walk in to town for more selection. We only cooked breakfasts during our short stay but found the kitchen was stocked with everything you could need including the all important corkscrew to enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony and take in the view. Really enjoyed the light airy clean feel of the property. We used Mountain Goat tours to see more of the district (also superb) and took the car ferry across the lake to go walking. Helen was very easy to deal with and I would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation.

AMAZING RETREAT WITH FABULOUS VIEWS!!

  • 5 out of 5
A fan of hotels and being pampered meant I was unsure about renting but the boat house exceeded all of our expectations; a real home away from home with lovely added touches that make it quite special....it has everything you need and more and the owners were only too happy to help with queries! The weather was worse than normal and the views from the balcony were still stunning and such a short walk to Bowness meant the car had a break too! We will definitely return to this gorgeous retreat :-)
