Boden Howe

Check availability/Book Jump to gallery

Boden Howe is a traditional Victorian Lakeland house offering simply breathtaking views over Ambleside to the fells beyond.  Located in a unique  location overhanging the village, Boden Howe is one of a terrace of four houses accessed by a pedestrian only footpath.   Private parking is provided for three vehicles and is a couple of minutes walk away from the house (please see map on Contact and Location page).   The garage, which was once the coaching stables for the Salutation Hotel, is large enough to accommodate bikes, trailers, small boats etc. in addition to two vehicles.  

The house provides specious accommodation for four guests and is personally maintained.   We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer complimentary spa access at the nearby Salutation Hotel and Spa just 50 mtrs away.   This is a cherished facility and is the icing on the cake for both our regular and new visitors.  

Our normal weekly changeover day is a Friday although other arrival days will be considered during Low Season or directly following a booking where departure is other than a Friday.

Boden Howe is available to occupy from 3.00 p.m. 

Short breaks (minimum 3 nights) available November - March at £130 - £155 per night. 

AmenitiesClick to open

Maintained to a high standard, Boden Howe provides stylish accommodation coupled with unrivaled views.  Laid out over three floors the property is large enough for famiies but cosy enough for one or two couples.   The house is very well equipped with reading matter, guides/maps and games and unlimited wifi is provided.  Following a tiring day on the Lakeland fells why not take advantage of the complimentary leisure facilities at The Salutation Hotel (2 mins walk from the house). 

To the rear of the house the sloping garden incorporates an elevated patio area primely positioned to catch the final rays of sun before it sets behind Loughrigg Fell.  The garden is not suitable for very young children unless supervised.

Travel cot and high chair can be provided at no extra charge.

We regret we are unable to accommodate dogs.

IMPORTANT PARKING NOTE:  Our private parking is within the confines of The Salutation Hotel overspill car park and, therefore, our external parking is restricted to one vehicle directly in front of the white garage doors although two vehicles can be accommodated inside the garage.
