About Helen Farthing
Hello I'm Helen, I deal with all enquiries and I keep the Boathouse to a high standard. I am continually tweeking the property to make sure your stay is comfortable and memorable.
Moved to the Lake District in 1989 from Lincolnshire and I still marvel at the views. I enjoy being outside and make use of the lake and mountains.
