                                                            Fantastic property, right place, well equipped and confortable

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            Located in the center of Bowness, just 2 minutes walk from the lake. Although the home is listed as accomodating four persons and we had originally booked for four, Deborah went out of her way and managed to accomodate all our family, made up of seven when the rest decided they want to join us. Central heated, microwave, cooker, washing machine, satellite tv and WiFi were present. Directions by Deborah were accurate. Thanks to Deborah we keep in touch daily via email with hints and problem solving for us when we needed. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to meet face to face. Highly recommended especially a family of four having kids. Just a minute away from restaurants and supermarkets and 5 min drive from nearest pharmacy. A major attraction nearby is the "The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction" which is a must for families with kids.Kayaking rental or mountain bikes rental is available nearby and also lake tours. Parking nearby was not that easy but always managed to find a parking space within 100ft.(had a 9 seater van)

                                                            Wonderful, relaxing place to stay with amazing view!

                                                            A beautifully renovated boat house and to a very high standard indeed, ideal for 5 adults and a 1 year old to enjoy a family long weekend together. This was 5* luxury accommodation with 3 tastefully designed bedrooms, an open plan living/dining area, and a well equipped kitchen perfect for self catering. It was all spotlessly clean on our arrival and, whilst the weather during or stay was not amazing, we could nevertheless enjoy the spectacular view of the lake through the windows of the living area! We enjoyed it so much that we are hoping to return at some time in the future. Thank you Helen!

                                                            Walkers Boathouse, Lake Windermere

                                                            We loved the location of the Boathouse, the view from the balcony is amazing rain or shine! No detail is overlooked by the owner resulting in a very comfortable stay. We stayed with a toddler and newborn so it all being on 1 level was brilliant. The house is well equipped making it feel like a real home from home. We would definitely come back and would reccomend to friends
