Why Helen Metcalfe chose Ambleside
Boden Howe and the three other houses on this unique terrace were built by my forebears and subsequently each occupied by a family member. My father was born in 'No 1' in 1920 and moved into 'No 2' ( Boden Howe) following his uncle's death in 1961. This was my parents' home until I inherited it in 2007. We have successfully let the house over the past three years and many guests feel it exceeds expectation.
What makes this house unique
We believe Boden Howe has one of the best uninterrupted panoramic views in Ambleside. The proximity to village amenities is without doubt a huge advantage to guests and this combination of views and convenience appears to be its major attraction.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Another fantastic holiday in the Lakes; walked most days and spent many happy evenings in Ambleside.
Thank you, Helen, for the 'loan' of Boden Howe we have been very comfortable as usual (3rd year running) and in such a wonderful location.
