Alice Howe, (’sister property’ to Bannerrigg and Boston House) a grade II listed property, was designed by Augustus (AWN) Pugin (1812-1852), arguably the greatest British architect, designer and writer of the 19th Century whose name is synonymous with the interior of the House of Lords and Westminster Abbey. This Majestic home is furnished and presented in a unique style - chunky king-size four poster beds, solid ash single beds give and lush decoration - qualities that have justified the property’s 4 star status with Visit Britain.
Alice Howe has 7 bedrooms, and 7 bathrooms ( 5 of which are en-suite). Making it an ideal base for the larger party. The train and bus station are literally around the corner, so the house is easily accessible for those members of your group that are travelling from far and wide. We’ve also extended the car park to accommodate up to 6 cars. The addition of more single beds has made this property ideal not just for couples and families but now also for groups of single friends.

Lake Windermere is perhaps the best know area in the Lake District and Windermere village itself is about 1km from the lake. The lake stretches from Waterhead, near Ambleside, to Lakeside at its narrow southern end, over 10 miles in length and the largest lake in England. Wooded slopes dotted with cottages and houses line its shores, while the water itself is usually busy with ferries and yachts.
Windermere is not as busy as it’s near neighbour, Bowness-on-Windermere, but has its own charms and attractions. It has excellent amenities and a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars all within easy reach. The village has good public transport links with its own train station and bus routes.
