“How amazing is this place!!!”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This place is absolutely fantastic The property is a dream home and you honestly couldn't wish to stay at a better property,The underfloor heating kept the place at a lovely temp and it was fantastic to walk into after a long day climbing, a prime location 10-15 mins walk to Ambleside and the great choice of pubs, restaurants,cafes and not even 5 mins to Watershead with pubs, restaurants , ferries and shops.We will definately go back and challenge ourselves with a few more walks and look forward to going "home "to Low Brow Barn . iat the end of the day

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just back from a 4 night break away, and what a brilliant place to brighten up January, from the ease of the booking to directions and the quality accommodation, was faultless.
We arrived about 5pm so it was getting dark but found it right away, got parked and it was nice and warm, the converted barn is very well laid out to high spec from underfloor heating to fully fitted kitchen, no need to bring any supplies, its spotlessly clean and plenty of storage space
Its just a short walk to Ambleside where there are many shops, cafe. bars , restaurants for everyone, the pier is nearby also and the ferry runs regular to Bowness
This was a superb break away and sorry to leave our wee home this morning after a fantastic break,
Thank you,

“Nice Barn BUT”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I am currently staying at Low Brow Barn in Ambleside and have been happy with the standard of accommodation that is on offer.
Whilst staying here, because I had been happy I booked a four night break for over the Easter Weekend of 2016. Later that afternoon I had a phone call from the office saying that if I wanted to carry on with the booking I would have to pay another £300.00+, even thou it had been accepted on the Internet.
Please be aware when you are booking through this company on the Internet your booking may not be all it seems and you could end up very disjointed like myself.

“The location and standard of this property was perfect for us :)”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Overall the cottage was perfect for our needs. Just a few minutes walk into Ambleside town centre, literally 2 minutes walk from Waterhead Pier and just a few minutes drive from the Langdale Valley where we love to walk. The quality of the cottage was excellent with everything you could need included. We have stayed in a number of cottages in the Lake District in the last 3 years and this one is by far the best. Will definately be back :)

“Perfect short break”
Reviewed 4 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

I was attracted to this property by the photographs of the place and the position which is just a short stroll from the centre of Ambelside. This meant we could hit the trails during the day but still have plenty of scope for evening entertainment.
The property is as it looks in the pictures, with quality furnishings. This was better than any hotel I've ever stayed in as it was real home from home. The kitchen is fantastic with a lovely raised area for dining. We cooked for ourselves a couple of times, but Ambleside was also great for eating out. We would wander around the galleries, have a pint and then find somewhere for an evening meal.
As you can see this all workied out very well for us and we have.booked to return later in the year.
