About Ken Burchill

Ken and Rose recently retired from owning an 80 bedroomed hotel in Bowness and with all three children and two grandchildren having left home are now letting their comfortable family home on a weekly basis

Ken Burchill purchased this house in 2001

Why Ken Burchill chose Windermere & Central Lakes

We bought the house in 2001 when only ourselves and our three children lived here and we were running the hotel just below the house so it was very convenient. As our family grew with initially the addition of sons in law and then two grandchildren we built two extensions to accommodate us all in comfort. All the children and grandchildren have left home and we have semi retired so when we are not at home we let our house. It might seem strange to some people to let your home but we are well used to it with having been hoteliers all our lives although our major 'home' did have 80 bedrooms!

What makes this house unique

Clover Nook is right in the heart of the vibrant village of Bowness so when Dad wants a paper in the morning all he has to do is wander to the bottom of the hill to the newsagents. The climb back up might be good exercise! Due to its location the house is within walking distance of all huge variety of pubs and restaurants in the village so if you don't want to cook all week you will never be disappointed each night when you dine in one of our many excellent restaurants. We highly recommend Rastellis though you can eat your way around the world whilst here with the wealth of international restaurants and locally some of the best UK eateries at the moment, The Brown Horse at Winster and L'Enclume at Cartmell to name two

Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our family get together was made possible and enjoyable by the location being a short walk , two minutes into the town center, and the comforts of the property in Bowness on Windermere. We would highly recommend this property because the rooms, being spacious, could cater for our large group; dining as well as relaxing. The property held everything that we needed, and in some cases even more. Thank You.
