About Low Fold Barn

Low Fold Barn is a stone barn situated in an enviable position in Ambleside just a short stroll from Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park. Thought to be one of the oldest buildings in Ambleside, and notable for its ancient stonework, this former Lakeland barn has been tastefully converted into a lovely holiday home. As well as a contemporary and spacious kitchen, dining room and living room, there are four gorgeous bedrooms, with one on the ground floor and one ensuite, making it a versatile and comfortable home from home for families and friends wanting to holiday together in the Lake District. The small town of Ambleside is a delight in all seasons with independent shops, wet weather attractions such as a multi screen cinema and bowls, as well as plenty of fantastic restaurants, pubs and cafes to suit every occasion. Guests also have a free pass to the local leisure centre which includes a swimming pool and steam room.

The Lake District is a walker's paradise and guests staying at Low Fold Barn will be spoilt for choice with the huge number of fantastic walks from the front door. Enjoy a leisurely stroll on the shores of Lake Windermere or energetic souls can climb to the top of Wansfell, Loughrigg Fell, Todd Crag and the Fairfield Shoe. Whilst the views are always stunning in every direction, you shouldn't miss an opportunity to see the majestic mountains from the water. Whether you book a cruise, hire a rowing boat or go for a bracing dip, Lake Windermere is beautiful at any time of the year.

The pretty towns of Windermere, Hawkshead, Kendall and Keswick are all within easy reach for a day out exploring, or enjoying browsing picturesque villages and visiting stately homes and gardens. Grizdale Forest, with it's fantastic mountain bike trails, adventure playground, Segway treks and Tree Top Adventure is a fun day out for all the family, whilst Peter Rabbit fans shouldn't miss the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. If you would prefer to enjoy the scenery from the comfort of a steam train hop on board the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway at Newby Bridge or explore the stunning gothic turrets and towers at the National Trust owned Wray Castle.

Whether you are looking for a new adventure each day or you simply want to re charge your batteries and relax in beautiful surroundings, Low Fold Barn is perfect for a holiday in the Lake District all year round.
