Barney's Cottage

This traditional Lakeland Stone Cottage is situated around a small courtyard, a stone's throw from the centre of Ambleside. Lovingly restored, it retains many original character features and is a great choice for families or couples looking to be within walking distance of the village centre. As you enter the property on the ground floor you are greeted with a large, open plan living area with underfloor heating and comfortable seating for cosy evenings in front of the log burning stove. The shaker style kitchen is beautifully equipped and leads to the traditional dining area with a dining table and a delightful window seat. On the first floor, the luxuriously appointed fully tiled bathroom boasts a double walk in shower alongside a bath, hand basin and W.C.  The Kings Size double bedroom has a lovely window seat overlooking the river and the single bedroom overlooks the world famous Bridge House. On the second floor there is a twin bedroom with LCD TV that is an ideal space for children.  In front of the cottage is a shared courtyard which offers off-road parking for one car. To the rear of the cottage is a patio area with a picnic table, the perfect place for relaxing with an evening drink after a long day exploring the fells or dining outside in the summer sun. Barney's Cottage is a stone's throw from the iconic Bridge House and a short walk into the village centre. Ambleside has a great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs and the village is a great central spot for exploring the Mountains and Lakes of the National Park.
