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!.
