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.

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.

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.

Perfect weather and a perfect cottage. Absolutely stunning views - we even preferred to eat in because the cottage was so lovely.
Everything in the cottage was just right. Thank you for your hospitality.

Lovely week

Lovely week in the Lakes, despite the weather. Boden Howe is lovely; very comfortable and great location with stunning views. Membership of The Salutation Spa is a great little extra - a soak in the hot tub after a long day's hike was great. Hope to return and try out the new patio.

We have traveled to the UK for decades and rented holiday cottages and this is the best of the best! The location gave us privacy, yet was minutes away from the village center. Steve and Helen Metcalf created an updated and beautiful cottage and live in Ambleside. They were most gracious hosts. They made our vacation a total pleasure. We highly recommend Boden Howe.

Superb self catering cottage in Ambleside

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 28, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We came to Boden Howe in May 2011 and because the cottage was so well placed for visiting Ambleside with a variety of shops, varied restaurants and 2 cinemas we booked again to stay in Boden Howe this year. The decor of the cottage is very tasteful and clean and all amenities are provided so that self catering is no problem as the 2 small supermarkets are less than 5 minutes walk away. Having breakfast in the dining room or sitting in the comfortable lounge with such a spectacular view is really memorable with the sky constantly changing - especially when we saw snow in May on the surrounding hills then brilliant sunshine!
This all helped to convince us that we will be back to visit Boden Howe again next year - thanks for everything - Helen and Steve!

Map

Car: not necessary

Of all the towns and villages in the Lake District Ambleside in unique. It is here the walking enthusiast may buy all they need for the hills in any one of a galaxy of outdoor shops and, so equipped,

start out directly up the slopes on which the village is built. Wansfell soars above the town; it's summit views stretching the length of Windermere, on to the Fairfield and Kentmere Horseshoe skylines and out towards Ingleborough. Between its sprawling flanks and Red Screes is Stock Ghyll, a rift channelling an eponymous beck over waterfalls and on into the village, underneath Bridge House and eventually merging with the River Rothay.
