About Christine Barrows
We have tried to create a comfortable house with modern amenities yet retaining some period style. The location was chosen because of the superb views, proximity to the town and its excellent facilities.
Christine Barrows purchased this House in 2006
Why Christine Barrows chose South Lakeland District
We feel so lucky to have a house in the heart of the lake district. It is just above the town , in a quiet cul de sac with views of the fells, yet only 3 minutes walk from the centre of town (five minutes to walk back!) and offering private parking. The house is equally suited to families or groups of adults and our family and friends use it as a base for walking, climbing, touring the area or just as a restful retreat. The town amenties include five cinema screens, multiple restaurants and bars, a park with tennis , bowls etc and a spa.
What makes this House unique
Total relaxation! Mountain walks and town amenities can both be reached without a car. Superb long distance views.

Lovely clean and quiet home with a view.
We would love to go back! The house was clean and quiet. There is lots to explore in the area. Great communication with the owners. The best kitchen to cook in of our whole trip.
Great location and beautifully presented accommodation.
We were fortunate to have lovely weather and a great trip for hiking in the Lakes. The property is beautifully presented - clean, modern furniture, very comfortable beds and linens. The kitchen is well stocked with implements and cooking utensils too. The house has great views from the front as it is high up from Ambleside centre and on foot there is a very steep path that certainly gave us a daily work-out.
Would definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting a base to explore this part of the Lake District.
A lovely cottage in a beautiful area.
A great place for a family to stay in a beautiful area. We highly recommend it.
Absolutely fabulous place to stay - have fell in love with Ambleside and the Lake District .
The house was as exactly as described with everything you needed - we only had a long weekend which was not enough time in the beautiful Lakes - our weather was perfect , which was a bonus. Ambleside was a lovely place and very easy to explore from - we also went to Keswick , Grassmere, Hill Top (Beatrix Potters house ) lunch at the hotel by visitors centre , stunning views on terrace ! Drove through Grizdale forest , Hawkeshead , walked along Lake Windermere and Bowness on Windermere. Food was superb at all the places we ate in 😁 Can’t wait to return to explore further and will definitely book Highgale again !
A beautiful tardis of a house.
We were extremely pleased with the house and were all looking forward to a fantastic weekend. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to a bereavement. We will definitely be back for some well deserved happier times.
Beautiful House with Beautiful Views Great Location
My mother and I stayed at this beautiful house in Ambleside for seven nights. The views from the house are absolutely breathtaking, and it is clean and well furnished. The location is ideal as well because it is centrally located between Windermere, Rydal, Grasmere, and Hawkshead (which supply endless opportunities for walking, hiking, sightseeing, shopping, and easy access to Lake Windermere). There is a grocery store only a few minutes away and also a large quantity of great restaurants to dine in! The walk up to the house is steep, but it was no problem for me being 7 months pregnant. Christine is absolutely wonderful to work with, and she is very kind, thorough, and a great communicator. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to make cherished memories in the Lake District!
