    “Low Brow Barn is a lovely place, very well located in Ambleside and very well appointed.”

    We loved staying there as our first family trip to The Lake District. The only slight disappointment we had was the lack of central heating. The underfloor heating is OK, but once you left the lounge and the log burning stove, it was chilly in the bedrooms. Probably the time of year and my fault for not being able to work out the myriad of possible settings for heating and water and it far from ruined our stay. Thanks for everything! We will come back in the summer

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 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.
