Fabulous accommodation, beautifully furnished with great facilities. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location for travelling round the lakes.
Only very slight downside, very close to main road so could be a little noisy at times. But would definitely stay here again as such a lovely house.
Thank you for your review of Low Brow Barn, Ambleside.
We are delighted you found the property beautifully furnished and well-equipped for your stay.
Lakes Cottage Holidays looks forward to welcoming you back to Low Brow Barn in the future!

“Beautiful but noisy”
Left on 09/30/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Sep 30, 2013Stayed Sep 2013
Low Brow Barn is lovely inside with all you could wish for to make your holiday comfortable, unfortunately for me the fact that it is beside a extremely busy road, resulting in to much road noise from the passing traffic ruined it for me.
The Lake district is beautiful with plenty of shops, but it is very busy.
Thank you for your feedback regarding Low Brow Barn, Ambleside.
We are pleased to hear the cottage was well-equipped for your needs during your stay.
We are sorry to hear you found the noise from passing traffic unsuitable, on Lakes Cottage Holidays website there is a map tool, which does show the location of the property.
We hope to welcome you back to the Lake District in the near future.

“Excellent location with everything you need for a family holiday”

The location was lovely, thought it may be too close to the road when we first arrived but was never an issue. The cottage was clean, dog and child friendly. All we needed was within walking distance and we had an amazing week. We would most defiantly return.
