    “Lovely cottage in an excellent location.”

    Felt that we would have benefited from a welcome pack ( refuse bin instructions, doctors locations and general information) some wine glasses would have been nice but overall a fantastic trip.

The property

This imaginatively converted stone-built barn is set end-on to the road and just a short level walk from the head of Lake Windermere from where lake cruises can be enjoyed throughout the year. The cottage has been created from a former Lakeland barn notable for its ancient stone work and reputed to be one of the oldest buildings in Ambleside. Lowfold Barn has been carefully planned and equipped with your holiday comfort in mind and with four bedrooms and three bathrooms will surely be the base for many happy Lake District holidays for families or a number of couples wishing to stay together. Numerous walks from the door include the fell tops of Wansfell, Loughrigg Fell, Todd Crag and the Fairfield Horseshoe, whilst a fine selection of restaurants, cafe's and pubs will suit every taste and pocket. Ambleside is a destination for all seasons with interesting shops, multi-screen cinema, tennis, bowls, mini-golf and much more. Accommodation: Entrance into open plan dining hall which also has French windows opening onto a stylish split level patio garden. The sitting room is accessed up two steps from the dining area and offers ample comfortable seating (wide screen TV with basic freesat package, DVD, CD player, flame effect gas fire, Wi- Fi .

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
