Wonderful 3 Bedroomed Boat House with Balcony giving you Lake & Mountain Views
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.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Immaculate, comfy and well equiped holiday home.
From the moment we arrived we were very impressed by the Osprey boathouse. It was clean, warm and very well presented. Helen had provided a substantial welcome pack and fresh flowers. Great to have a good quality coffee machine! We went out and about during the mornings, but after lunch took advantage of the balcony and great views over the lake. Ideal position for walking into Bowness and local restaurants. We do a lot of cottage holidays and Osprey has gone to the top of our list. Would definitely like to return.
Thank you for your review, very happy you had a good time and hope to see you in the future.
Lovely home-from-home with great view!
We were four adults sharing for a week, with spectacular weather.
Beautifully presented, with thoughtful welcome pack. Consideration was given to our comfort in the heat of summer, with extra fans and appropriate bedding.
Level access to the whole property was great for elderly parents, with limited mobility.
Overall a very enjoyable week.
Thank you for your review, and hope to see you again in the future.
Very well equipped and in a good location for exploring the lakes.
We were so lucky to have only part of one day with rain with the remainder in sunshine. It was nice to be able to revisit old haunts and see friends who live there. All in all a lovely short break
beautifully presented property, fantastic views,great location
Second stay at the boat house Helen just as welcoming as always. Although the weather wasn't the best we still had a great time who wouldn't with views overlooking the lake. Made use of the water sports shop next door went out on the lake a few times on the kayaks great fun the boat house is perfect location to walk to bowness just a ten to fifteen minute walk away. Had some lovely meals at the ship inn good food at a reasonable price. This is the first time we have visited a property in the lakes for a second time and we come to the lake district three or four times a year this is how good osprey boat house is thank you Helen for another perfect holiday and for the lovely welcome pack on arrival hope to see you again soon Woodhouse and Swan family 28/07/17
Thank you for your review, its good to hear we have succeeded in getting you to come a 2nd time, lets hope we go for a 3rd visit.
Thank you again. Helen.
Stunning location. Fantastically equipped lodge
We hired the boathouse to say goodbye to a friend who is emigrating and celebrate a couple of birthdays. The location and views are stunning- such a peaceful and relaxing spot. The boathouse is well equipped and well furnished with lovely personal finishing touches to help your stay get off to a great start. I am sure we will return. We loved it.
Fantastic property. Really well lifted out with nice extra touches like flowers and eggs.
