Ideal spot for a family of 4 (if adults) or 5 if a mix of adults and younger children. Sky TV was excellent (with full package) and the log-burner was superb. Lovery first floor bathroom and double bedroom and the loft bedroom was spacious and comfortable.
Only draw back was the kitchen table occupied a lot of the kitchen and lounge space - but not a major problem.
All in all, a great place to stay, with good parking facilities! Read more

Barneys cottage is a real gem. Beautifully renovated with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The location is great. There is a bit of road noise in the lounge area from the main road through ambleside (but not noticeable in the bedrooms) but this is a very minor point - the trade off is that you're right in the heart of lovely ambleside with it's pubs, restaurants and great walking literally on your doorstep... and there's even a parking space. We enjoyed our stay stay so much we're going back next year!

My husband and I and our three young sons had a lovely break at Barneys cottage. The accommodation is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need. It's central location in gorgeous ambleside was also a bonus. I really can't recommend it enough we had a fantastic holiday and look forward to returning.
