Wonderful cottage and location
Our second stay at Boden Howe with its winning combination of clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage and use of the lesiure club facilities at the hotel next door. Boden Howe is a cut above many cottages we have stayed in with its high quality furnishings and equipment. The views over the fells are lovely and the village is literally on your doorstep. Plenty of great walking from the door, from strolls around Rydal Water to the Fairfield Horseshoe (12 miles, 8 Wainwrights). This house is a big hit with our three teenagers due to the use of pool, gym and hot tub next door and the good WiFi -and they can go out and about on their own in Ambleside to the football ground, mini-golf etc. Excellent service from Helen and Steve. We will definitely return. Highly recommended.
Another fantastic week at Boden Howe...
We have stayed at Boden Howe on two occasions and could not recommend it more. Perfectly situated in the centre of Ambleside with a raised elevation giving beautiful views over the town itself and the hills beyond. The house is appointed to the highest of standards and equipped with everything you need for a family week away. The added bonus of the passes to the spa and pool at the Salutation Inn really made for a fantastic family holiday. We are already planning our next visit!
Fabulous view, great location
This was our second stay at Bowden Howe, which indicates how much we like it. Comfortable accommodation with modern, well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Wonderful views over Ambleside and to the hills beyond. Right in the town centre, so handy for restaurants and shops. Will definitely book again.
Close to mainstreet shops and easy access to walks
Very clean and well maintained older home with modern amenities including bathrooms and kitchen. 3 story home with lots of space and sitting areas. Lots to see around Ambleside and walks to do. Lots of great restaurants and supermarkets very close by. Host communication was fantastic and more than willing to assist in any way. Wifi available. Central heating to house was excellent. Overall a fantastic stay in Ambleside and would recommend this high quality property.
Immaculately clean and superb central Ambleside location
Thank you so much for our stay at Boden Howe. We had a superb week and this was much to do with the house where we stayed.
Upon arrival there was a lovely lemon cake to welcome us. The house is in an unbeatable location for access to all the shops and restaurants in Ambleside which with 2 young children was ideal for us. The parking worked out really well and saved all the hassle of having to park on the street. When we arrived we had expected it to be much further than it was from the house to the car and whilst up a steep hill, it is really only a very short way to the house.
The house was immaculately clean, much more so than anywhere we have stayed before. The added bonus was having access to the hotel swimming pool nearby which we used twice after going for long walks in the morning. The kids just loved being able to use the pool. Overall, we would definitely recommend this house. We have since got a new puppy which means sadly we won't be able to stay here again, otherwise we would have rebooked in a heartbeat.
Couldn't have been better
This place is a gem and is a perfect base for both walking in the nearby fells and driving further afield. (The parking turned out to be one of the best features although this was not apparent before we got there.) The owners have covered absolutely all the bases in the remodeling and every detail is perfect. Our visit included sunny warm days as well as rainy cold ones. The house is just big enough to provide private spaces for several people, and it is close to many amiable pubs and the (free) Salutation health club and pool. Since the house is on an elevated terrace, you are greeted by stunning views every morning. In our case, some of the peaks were snow-covered for a few days which made it seem like some 19th century magical place. You have no excuse not to get in shape here, with many options for drinks and supper after exercise. The owners were extremely welcoming and treated us like old friends. After a month in this place, we felt like we were a little bit a part of English village life in one of the best places in the world.
