Overview

About the property

The Boundary is an elegant, stylish, spacious Victorian house that is also within walking distance of forty restaurants and pubs, scores of shops and Windermere, England's largest Lake. There is a bathroom for every luxurious bedroom, a fantastic dining kitchen and two log-burners, one in the kitchen and one in the elegant sitting room. There are also two more cosy sitting rooms, one with TV and one with gas fire and pleasant outlook.

It is a few minutes' stroll from the villages of Windermere and Bowness and has ample off-street parking for five cars with plentiful, free on-street parking nearby.

All seven rooms have king- or super-king sized double beds and two can be configured as twin rooms if you prefer.

The owner is a big cricket fan and bedrooms are named for giants of the game's past, from the era when the house was built.

WG Grace. Large, light room with sash window on to and super-king double or twin beds - please specify when booking. The bathroom, with bath and shower over is right next door.

THE BOUNDARY

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 11 and 2 small dogs ! 10 adults and a 7 month old baby girl.

I initially rang Steve (the owner) to enquire about the property.My family have been coming to The Lakes for past 12 years and each year our party is growing in numbers. Steve had The Boundary as a B & B for many years and was very successful. And this year was his venture into the holiday rental market. The Boundary is a big house so you can come together or have your own space. We loved the kitchen as we all had breakfast and in the evening we played board games with lots of Prosecco !

Steve is a lovely guy and so accommodating. Any questions just ask him .Look forward to return visit.
