About William Hodkinson

We are a family of 6 and this is our holiday home. We have 4 children who all enjoy the Lakes as much as we do.

William Hodkinson purchased this house in 2010

Why William Hodkinson chose Ambleside

The perfect location for everything. The property is a 5 minute walk from Lake Windermere and also a 5 minute walk from open countryside. Be it cycling or kayaking, the lakes has it all. The house is also a 5 minute drive to Ambleside, Windermere or Bowness.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of the property are too many to count. The magnificent views from the garden, the patio area where you can just chill out. If you want to go shopping there are the beautiful villages of Grasmere or Hawkshead within 15 minutes. Walking in the Langdales the Fells above Grasmere. Climbing Helvelyn, Scafell Pike, the Old man of Coniston, Skiddaw Visiting Buttermere, Derwent Water, Ullswater. Cycling around Thirlmere or in the little known roads of Mungrisedale. Mountain biking in Grisedale forest. This is just the start. There is so much to do. Or you could just chill out in Bowness or Ambleside in one of the many coffee houses, pubs or restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for an excellent weekend. The house was just perfect and suited our every need. We will be booking again next year. Sue 29/10/2014



What a place - Great memories and a super weekend that will be remembered for years to come. Emma and Friends 03/03/2014



This was our fifth visit to your amazing holiday home over the last 3 years. It gets better every time. Despite the weather we went for long walks, and the added bonus of having membership at Low Wood Leisre club really came in useful. The kids went swimming every day, whilst we chilled out in the hot tub. Also, it was really nice going out of season as things were not too busy.



Richard 07/01/2014



We had a wonderful New Year in your amazing house. Perfect size and location for all the family. Thank you Adam 03/01/2014.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this house for the weekend and it was absolutely fantastic. The house is beautiful and really well equipped. Everything we needed was there ready for us. We had two babies and two toddlers with us and the travel cots and a stair gate were also supplied. The garden is really lovely with a fabulous view and the house itself is in a great location. I would definitely recommend this house to everyone.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for the weekend for my husband's suprise birthday and 12 of us stayed in total. The House is amazing! As soon as we walked in we were all stunned and wowed by it all.

It was so much more than what i expected and all of us loved it! All the rooms throughout the house are lovely and it is a great size for a large group and has everything you need and more. The location is perfect and easy to find. We will definitely be returning next year and i would highly recommend the house to anyone, you will not be disappointed at all. It is simply stunning.

We can't wait to come back, we miss it already!

Wonderful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group - aged from 2 to 70 - on holiday for a family celebration and everyone loved it. The house and garden is wonderful - even better than we were expecting, we all wished we could stay longer. The house is extremely well-equipped with clear instructions and lots of information about walks and local attractions. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary with six other couples. The house is fabulous & very well equipped.

Nothing was an issue for the owners when I contacted them with any queries.

Stunning location, perfect to celebrate any occasion or just to get away and relax.

I would certainly recommend and would hope to visit again in the near future.
