    Alice Howe sleeping up to 14 guests

    Designed by the great British Architect Pugin, Alice Howe is a rather special addition to our portfolio and is available for shortbreaks (3 nights), bookable in advance throughout the year with the exception of  all school holidays, we can only take full weekly bookings during school holidays.
    Alice Howe, (’sister property’ to Bannerrigg and Boston House) a grade II listed property, was designed by Augustus (AWN) Pugin (1812-1852), arguably the greatest British architect, designer and writer of the 19th Century whose name is synonymous with the interior of the House of Lords and Westminster Abbey. This Majestic home is furnished and presented in a unique style - chunky king-size four poster beds, solid ash single beds give and lush decoration - qualities that have justified the property’s 4 star status with Visit Britain.
    Alice Howe has 7 bedrooms, and 7 bathrooms ( 5 of which are en-suite). Making it an ideal base for the larger party. The train and bus station are literally around the corner, so the house is easily accessible for those members of your group that are travelling from far and wide. We’ve also extended the car park to accommodate up to 6 cars. The addition of more single beds has made this property ideal not just for couples and families but now also for groups of single friends. If you’re looking for a big house to rent in the lakes for an ’upmarket’ stag or hen weekend Alice Howe is the ideal choice.This property can be booked together with any of the neighbouring properties or rent THE whole street - Boston House (CC127199), Bannerrigg (CC127195), White Moss (CC127244) and Number One (CC127243) to accommodate up to 66 people in 30 bedrooms!.

    Erica – 3 Oct 2018
    "Great house for a family get together only problem we found was it was rather cold and the heating came on a very strange times."
    Judith – 27 Sep 2018
    "It was perfect for gathering our friends and family for my 50th Birthday celebrations and everyone commented on how lovely Alice Howe and Boston House, which we also rented, were. They were all very impressed."
    Barry – 18 Sep 2018
    "we hired 3 of the properties for a major family celebration ! Liz the manager was amazing and the properties are fantastic. everything worked amazingly well for a party of 43 over three properties. The quality of the terrace is probably the best self catering we have ever hired and we are very fussy. The location sitting above the town is just perfect ,with 5 min walk to everything, restaurants supermarket pubs etc. The properties are equipped to a very high standard and has everything you could wish for. All the appliances and entertainment equipment is top notch."
    Sue – 12 Sep 2018
    "Fantastic cottage, lots of space to socialise, relax, chill and enjoy. So close to everything you need. Would not hesitate to return."
    Confirmed guest – 5 Sep 2018
    "Excellent location and excellent prompt service of an extra bed when we arrived! Thankyou. The shower in room 3 was broken so couldn’t be used all weekend which was a pain as there where 3 people in that room, also the only thing I didn’t like about staying at the house was that the cleaners where sat outside from 9.30! Which put us under pressure to vacate. Thank you."
    Janet – 3 Sep 2018
    "We were a family group of 13, and there was everything you could ask for in the accommodation. Everyone enjoyed their first visit to the lakes"
    Val – 23 Jun 2018
    "Generally good holiday property for a large party, good space, furnishings and equipment.Too close to a noisy busy road, which meant sitting outside in the small garden area was not pleasant, so we moved the garden furniture to the front, which worked, although it was not private from other residents at The Terrace. It was also noisy during the night and particularly in the morning, for people who were sleeping on that side of the house.Major irritation was the cleaning team! When some of our party arrived early and wanted to park at the property, they were told that the parking spaces wouldn't be available until 4pm and that their cars would be in the way. This might be acceptable, if it wasn't for the fact that on the day of departure, when our departure time was 10am, some of the cleaning/maintenance team arrived before 9am. One parked his van right in front of the cottage, in a space we had intended to use for loading one of our vehicles. He then sat in the van and stared into the front door watching as we all moved around loading our vehicles. Eventually he sat at the table outside the front, and other cleaning people arrived early also. It felt like vultures were swirling overhead waiting for us to go, and definitely spoiled the last hour of our visit. When we were saying goodbye to other family members at 10am, people who we wouldn't see for another year, they were already in the house and stripping the beds."
    Barry – 12 May 2018
    "The property is exceptional and in a perfect position for Windermere.The beds were the most very comfortable.The only negative was the pool room which was damp and musty and the pool table cloth needed renewal, as did the balls."
    Gemma – 13 Mar 2018
    "The property is exceptional value for money. Excellent location also. The kitchen is very well equipped an all bedrooms very clean and tastefully decorated. Amazing location for a big family knees up. One criticism would be that both kitchens (whether the log burner was burning or not) were freezing, making it impossible to enjoy cooking/spending time in there. The rest of the house is however very warm and comfortable. We would absolutely look to staying again in future."
    Karen – 26 Feb 2018
    "A wonderful home from home and a great base to explore the South Lakes. Friends arrived by train and this was right next to the train station, but no noise heard from the trains. Beds were very comfortable. Pool table a real hit with the family."
    David – 24 Feb 2018
    "Fabulous place to stay, really enjoyed it .Shower heads need a clean !!!!!Thats the only thing we saw that was not perfect .But if thats all then its not really a problem .Thankyou , we would stay again !!!Xxxxx"
