Blissful lakeside retreat!

  • 5 out of 5
The perfect location for a get together with family and friends. The boathouse is in an ideal location within easy walking distance to Bowness and proximity to the nab ferry provides easy access to Windermere's western shore. The property is finished to a very high standard and equipped with everything you could need. Sitting on the balcony enjoying a glass of wine, kindly provided in the welcome pack, is the perfect end to the day!

A little piece of Heaven.....Walkers Boat House!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow is a word that should be used freqently to describe the work that's gone into turning this once working boat house into a exquisit holiday retreat!

Everything has been so very well thought out from scratch and it's quite amazing the Owner has made use of the room available and made the Boat House such a lovely place to spend some time.

The bedrooms are fairly spacious, the bathroom and on suite are also quite large....zero condensation even with power showers, never seen that before!

The open plan lounge is very impressive with it's quality leather Sofa's, the kitchen also has the WOW factor with an array of led lighting and top quality German Apliances with all you need for self catering and more besides.

Helen also left us a welcoming box full to the brim with goodies, she also left in the fridge...butter, milk, eggs, bread and to cap it all off a bottle of wine, all of which were good quality.

The view is as good as it gets and there's a lovely balcony complete with patio furniture and believe me it's as close as you can get to Lake Windermere without getting wet.

Parking is always high on my list and it's not a problem at the here as there is ample space for two cars and it's well lit complete with a level work into the accomodation.

We didn't really use the car either as the fifteen minute stroll along a path that runs lake side to Bowness was such a pleasure.

So to sum up..... Helen has a highly desirable and unusual holiday destination that's been finished to a high standard and it's worth the money.

Would I return to Walkers Boat House?
DEFANATLY if they will have us of course, and I've already given the details to two clients of our clients who's interested.

Thanks for a lovey time Helen.

Des & family.

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.
