Low Brow Barn

Ambleside, The Lake District
Holiday Cottage

Low Brow Barn holiday cottage near Ambleside is situated at the foot of Wansfell and surrounded by the gorgeous countryside in the heart of the Lake District.

A stunning 17th-century barn, converted to the highest standards. With accommodation all on one level, the barn has been furnished in a comfortable and contemporary style with spacious and open plan accommodation for a small family or four adults who want to explore Lakeland at any time of year.

As you step in through the large barn door, you’ll find yourself in the most fabulous open plan room with the original exposed beams and huge picture windows to take in the tranquil and beautiful surroundings and flood the space with natural light.

It really is a breathtaking space, with comfortable seating around the wood burning stove and a really fabulous dining kitchen area with a slate floor, Rangemaster cooker and marble worktops.

This beautiful conversion offers period character, a modern high-end finish and contemporary style, which continues through to the two king size bedrooms and the fantastic modern bathroom with a bathtub, overhead shower, vanity unit and WC.

Step outside and there are so many tranquil places to sit and enjoy the day and take in the views. There’s the private lawned garden and then the choice of two raised patios with garden furniture and a BBQ.

The garden really is the ideal place for dining al fresco or simply relaxing after the hustle and bustle of a day in the Lakes.

There’s private parking for one car at the property, plus more free parking nearby. Waterhead perches on the northern tip of Lake Windermere and rides on the famous steamers are easily accessible from the nearby pier.
