About Helen Farthing
Hello I'm Helen, I deal with all enquiries and I keep the Boathouse to a high standard. I am continually tweaking the property to make sure your stay is comfortable and memorable. Moved to the Lake District in 1989 from Lincolnshire and I still marvel at the views. I enjoy being outside and make use of the lake and mountains.

Enjoyed our second visit
Really enjoyed our second visit despite the terrible weather. The property is very clean and tidy and very warm and cosy even though it’s right on the water.
I’m sure we’ll be back again.
Thank you for the review, thank you for your kind comments in our guest book too, we do still have some dates available in the summer, if you do fancy comparing summer with winter.

Sam and family
I have been coming to the Lakes each year for as long as I can remember & cant believe I have never come across home & away! The property was in the most perfect location. It is all on one level so my elderly father managed well. It was immaculate & had everything you could possibly need. The welcome pack was thoughtfully planned & meant you didn’t need to shop immediately. The property was so spacious too with more than enough utensils/crockery etc for 6. The balcony & view are stunning. Even at this time of year there were plenty of comings & goings on the lake to entertain my dad. We hope to return in the near future!
So lovely that we have ticked all the boxes for you, hope to see you again in the future.
The boat house is an absolutely stunning property
The boathouse is done to a very high standard, with everything you need in the house.
The views are amazing, it such a quiet peaceful location. Yet your in walking distance to everything.
Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to having you stay again next year .
