  • Really lovely barn conversion, we have stayed in several cottages over the years in Ambleside as it is so well placed to hike, bike/ tour from, and its loaded with restaurants, hotels bars, shops & 2 very quaint cinemas , this barn is definately the best we have found so far, very comfortable beds / sofas, loads of wardrobe space, well equipped and clean. Nice little patio area outside. The traffic noise did not bother us at all, Ambleside is a buzzing little place so if you want total peace and quiet maybe its not for you . Short 10 minute walk into village and its many amenities. 3 minute walk to Waterhead where there is 2 hotels where you can eat and v.nice pub that serves food all day with great views of Windermere, you can also catch the boat over to Bowness from Waterhead . There is space for one car to park at the barn , but free parking is literally 10 feet away, weather was great while we were there, Oh and it also has WIFI . We shall be booking again for next year..
