A delightful barn with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this barn for my dad's birthday on the May bank holiday weekend. It was a last minute trip and we stumbled across it quite late in the day - we were extremely glad we did! The barn was perfect for what we wanted. It is in a lovely quiet location with easy access to ambleside and windemere, and it has a beautiful garden with unobstructed views, wonderful for sitting out in the early evening. It comfortably houses 6, its very open, light and fresh throughout, there is a great family/kitchen dining area and the patio doors open out into the garden. Although we didn't have children with us, we noted that it was well equipped for young families.

The owner - Arif was a pleasure. He was prompt, efficent and helpful at every point.

I have, and will continue to recommend this accomodation to family and friends travelling to this part of the lakes and I hope to stay here again myself. Thanks!

Brilliant, luxurious, surpassed all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely incredible stay here.

To begin with, our contact with Arif, the owner, was seamless. He provided us with all the necessary information, and always responded quickly to any enquiries. He asked for a deposit upfront that was refunded via cheque shortly after departure.

The pictures don't do the barn any justice, it is really massive and luxurious inside which we truly were not expecting. The kitchen is well-equipped, beds comfortable, house warm. It is faultless.

I reckon you would need a car to stay here, but there is a bus stop that takes you into Ambleside if you so wished.

Would definitely stay here again if ever in the area! Highly recommend.

Fantastic Converted Barn

  • 5 of 5

As a party of five adults we spent a fabulous week in this converted barn. The description on the website was exact , it was spacious, modern and very clean . It would also cater for families with young children as there were toys, a high chair and a safety gate at the top of the stairs.

The Barn was situated in a private setting at the end of a short lane close to Ambleside and Windemere. The bus stop was conveniently situated at the end of the lane should you not have transport.

Brockhole, The Lake District Visitors Centre is on the main road at the end of the lane and this offers activities for families such as canoeing, biking , archery and treetop challenges.

Ambleside is a busy town and has two fabulous vegetarian/vegan restaurants .

We would highly recommend this property and the surrounding area to family and friends.
