Cottage Review:  

Low Brow Barn is in the perfect location for an adventurous family holiday in the Lakes. The barn is just off the main road that runs through Ambleside, just a short five minute walk will take you down to the pier where you can catch a boat to local areas of the lakes. We often did a nice 20 minute walk into Ambleside town for some pub lunch and there was lots to chose from and lots to do. A guide from the owners had been left out for us to read and was very useful.

Accommodation was absolutely stunning, not to mention gleaming, everywhere was super clean! The barn has a large open plan living room and kitchen that was very well heated for such a large space, perfect for kids and dogs running around. The two bathrooms are gorgeous and equipped with heated flooring which was a lovely touch in October. Beds were really comfy and the bedrooms offered lots of storage for clothes and bags.

We took our two dogs and couldn?t recommend the place more.

Thank you

Cottage Review:  

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely cottage.

On arrival there is parking for 1 car on a slopping driveway, we had 2 cars and there was no problem as there is a large lay-by literally viewable from the cottage.

The cottage has a lovely large open lounge with large comfy corner sofa and modern kitchen with dining area. Everything we could possibly need was provided.

There is 2 double bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe space. Hairdryers are provided in both rooms.

The cottage is ideal as it?s easy walkable to Waterhead ferry enabling easy travel to Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere.

There a loads of pubs and restaurants within walking distance in Ambleside.

I would highly recommend this property and will definitely be returning.

Cottage Review:  

We stayed in this cottage for 7 nights the area is fantastic for scenery and local shops. When we arrived the whole area around the garage was covered in fallen leaves and the small garden area was covered

The accommodation is nice and spacious however it is adjacent to a busy main road there is a private driveway going to another property that limits the ability to park. The limited parking area to the barn is very steep and the garage is not very big,

our car was parked inches from the garage door and going out one day and having to balance the clutch and the accelerator to move of the car rolled back and bumped the garage door leaving two small dents, you had to stand close to the door to see there was any damage, we had paid the insurance for accidental damage and was astounded when the cost for the damage was 1150 they must have replaced the whole door.

The insurance refused to pay saying we had to claim off the car insurance. suspiciously a few hours after reporting the damage somebody came out and cleared the leaves.

Cottage Review:  

can only fault the cottage on cleanliness, the bedrooms smell of dirty mops . Pan in cupboard dirty, tiles round kitchen dirty, light above kitchen table dirty, slip mat in bath filthy, round bottom of sink in bathroom dirty. That is a few concerns .

Apart from the above the locations is amazing, as is the Lake District the scenery is breath taking .

Really handy for walking into Ambleside with its cafes and shops but would recommend stopping at Booths in Windermere for food as the convenience stores in Ambleside itself are a bit limited. The cottage was equipped well and furnished to a high standard, with very cosy underfloor heating. We thought it was a great base for the Langdales, Grizedale Forest (and the Go Ape Treetop Adventure for those who like heights!) and for Rydal and Grasmere. A great area with fabulous scenery.

Just had a 2 night stay at Low Brow Barn. First visit to this property and what a charming place to stay. The location is perfect with Waterhead pier, restaurants and cafes just a minutes walk away. We had breakfast in one of the local cafes which was lovely before getting the ferry across to Bowness. Ambleside itself is a pleasant and easy 10 minutes walk in the opposite direction. There is a huge garden centre on the way which was lovely to walk around. The barn itself had fantastic views of the lake and woodland. It was spacious, spotless and stunning.
