Boston House is the perfect getaway for families or large groups of friends to get away and enjoy a holiday or short break in The Lake District.

Boston House (’sister property’ to Alice Howe and Bannerrigg) is the perfect base for large groups of friends or families to take a holiday or a short break. The property sleeps 14 comfortably in 7 bedrooms, each bedroom has white cotton bedding and TV. Five of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms; the other two rooms have separate bathrooms, which means every bedroom has private facilities. For the romantics in your party there are two four poster beds and one half tester bed.During the 2008 winter period Boston House has had an exterior makeover. The rear courtyard has been cleared and a new raised slate bed patio has been installed. At the front of the property the car park has been expanded and there is now parking for up to 6 cars. Newly refitted kitchen with solid oak units, Lakeland slate work-tops, 7 ring burner - twin oven range cooker. 46 bottle wine cooler and 8 seat central island unit. The lounge has a living flame gas fire, leather settees, larger flat screen TV, DVD player cinema surround sound system and a hifi. The fireplace designed by Pugin is believed to be a small-scale replica of the one he designed for Westminster palace. The dining room has a huge table perfect for entertaining a large group. New 14 seat cinema in the cellar with hi-def, Blue-Ray projector and proper fold down cinema seats. The rear courtyard is walled all round and is extremely private. There is a huge teak table and chairs sitting on a raised slate bed patio perfect for dining al fresco and its surrounding walls mean that it is well protected from the wind. At the front of the property there is a second patio with table and four chairs, which is a real suntrap - perfect for a quiet coffee! The house has private parking for up to 6 cars. As you would imagine the property has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished in keeping with its Grade II listed status. So if you’re looking for a house in the Lakes to celebrate a 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th or even 70th birthday Boston House is the ideal choice.This property can be booked together with Alice Howe (CC127187), Bannerrigg (CC127195), White Moss (CC127244) and Number One (CC127243) to accommodate up to 66 people in 30 bedrooms!

    A very good property for a large group. It is "comfortable" rather than "luxury". The lounge is tight for 10 people or more. The kitchen is barely adequately equipped for a large group, although the kitchen itself is large. Bedrooms are ok, and bathrooms are adequate - shower cubicles are small. The property generally feels a little tired, but no complaints about the cleaning. It is in a good position for walking into town (200 m?); Booths supermarket is nextdoor; as is the railway station. You can walk up onto the hills from the house. The property is on a main road, which looks as though it will create some noise when you first arrive, but actually you hear nothing from inside the house (it would probably be noisy sitting outside on the patio in the summer). WiFi is weak around the house. Ability to control the heating times would be useful in winter - the heating goes off during the day (but there is a gas fire in the lounge); when the heating is on, it is plenty warm enough. Parking for 6 cars in front of the house is very useful. Overall a perfectly acceptable house for a large group.

    The house is in a great location, very close to Windermere itself and we were very happy with the cleanliness of all the rooms (considering there was only 1 cleaner and we had to wait to just after 4pm to go in the property). However, for the price we paid for the week, we felt that there were a few things lacking: 1. The lounge was not a very relaxing room for everyone to sit down in, the sofa was quite hard and uncomfortable and the tv only had free view channels. Needless to say not much time was spent in here. 2. The kitchen table only had 6 chairs and as we spent most of our time in here, there wasn't enough for everyone, eg when having breakfast. The kitchen could also use a filter coffee machine, but overall was fine for what we needed. 3. Due to the layout of the house, and the fire doors etc, the house felt more like a hotel than a home (Probably just not enough open planned space). The kids and the adults really enjoyed the cinema though and was the highlight of the stay.
