Apartment on the ground floor of a 300 year old, Grade 2 listed Lakeland barn. Quiet location, off street parking by the door, mountain views. New kitchen and wet room, underfloor & central heating, wood burning stove. One bedroom with kingsize bed.
This is a quirky, c.300 year old building and is part of a group of buildings on the Ambleside Heritage Trail that are the oldest in the town. The site was the first to be settled in what is now Ambleside, over 1,000 years ago. It is constructed of Lakeland stone and is Grade 2 Listed. The walls are 2 feet thick and the interior contains ships timbers salvaged from the Cumbrian coast. The kitchen and wet room are new and contemporary, yet blend with the old world feel of the apartment. There is always plenty of hot water to relax in the shower after a day on the fells and the wood burning stove provides a cosy focal point in the evenings.

Guests will be greeted with a cup of tea up in the main barn on the first floor. We are outdoor enthusiasts ourselves and love to help visitors make the most of their time in The Lakes. We can offer help, suggestions and advice on walks for all abilities and seasons, including eating, mountain biking, wildlife, wild swimming, cinema, theatre, live music, pubs, history, Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth, boat trips, public transport and much more. Guided fell walking and other outdoor activities can be arranged along with driving tours/suggested routes.
We live in the barn above and are usually available in person or by phone at all times. We try to treat our guests as new friends.

I moved to The Lake District National Park in early 2014 after living and working in London for the last 30 years. I have two grown up children and I love living in 'The Lakes'. I am a fell walker and general outdoor enthusiast and love helping people explore this most beautiful and spectacular part of the UK. I really enjoy advising on the best route, circular walks, ridge walks, scrambling, driving tours, wild swimming, wild camping, mountain biking areas and trails, where to watch wildlife, National Trust properties, history, live music and the use of the various lake ferries to incorporate into your days out.
I am passionate about preserving and protecting wild places and wildlife. I'm also interested in live music and try to spend a couple of weeks each year working at music festivals.
