    “The Old Barn was a brilliant place to stay and we shall consider staying again in the future.”

    The cottage was well equipped and very spacious.

The property

A fantastic barn conversion which is part of a converted coach house and stables, around two miles from Ambleside and just a two minute stroll from Brockhole - the National Park Visitor Centre on the shores of Lake Windermere.

The property is set in beautiful landscaped gardens, it has a tranquil and secluded feel, but without compromising on convenience and nestled amongst a group of traditional Lakeland buildings that once belonged to the first Earl of Lonsdale during the late 18th Century.

The Old Barn’s interior is light and airy, with a living and dining space that looks out onto the gardens and the lake.

Three spacious bedrooms make every guest feel special.

Plus, there is a beautiful patio, the perfect place to unwind, relax and enjoy al fresco living in harmony with the visiting wild deer.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 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.
