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.

De ruimte

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.

Toegang voor gasten

Free on site private parking right at the door, with secure bicycle storage in our stone outbuilding if required. Free wood for the stove, gas central heating, underfloor heating to wet room & kitchen, shaver point, library of maps guidebooks & local tourist information, board games, tv, dvd player, free Wi-Fi, electric ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave oven, Bosch dishwasher, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, hair dryer, cool mat for hair straighteners.

Interactie met gasten

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.

Zeer vriendelijke gastheer met veel kennis van de omgeving. Prachtig gelegen appartement, met leuke oude elementen in het centrum van Ambleside. Goede voorzieningen en fijn bed. Hoewel centrum van Ambleside echt op een steenworp afstand ligt zit je heel rustig in het prachtig oude gedeelte. Veel kortere (1,5-3 uur) wandelingen op loopafstand van appartement dus als weer tegenzit nog genoeg te doen. Veel kaarten en wandelsuggesties in het appartement beschikbaar. Keuken beschikt over alles wat je nodig hebt en badkamer is schoon en praktisch. Stel je bij de tuin niet teveel voor. Dat is een bankje op de parkeerplaats maar geen slecht uitzicht. Kortom, fijn appartement met goede voorzieningen op loopafstand van Ambleside met heel veel wandelmogelijkheden in omgeving (korte maar ook dagtochten).

Not certain what your review says Mirthe, but I'm sure it's great! Thanks for the comments about the sofa bed - yes it does sag so I'm placing a stiffening board underneath the seat cushions for when it's not being used as an occasional bed. Yes, the wet room floor does get wet hence the scraper, but the wc seat can be kept dry if the cover is lowered. Out of summer season the underfloor heating is on and this tends to dry it off. Hope you'll come again!

What a wonderful week we had at Robin's barn. Ambleside is the perfect location for visiting the lakes, and the barn is in the perfect location in Ambleside. Everything as described, and Robin was a welcoming but not an intrusive host. Highly recommended.

It was our first visit to the Lake District and in choosing How Head Barn we chose the right accommodation. The location was perfect and Robin was an excellent host. He welcomed with a cup of tea on arrival after a long road and was full of information and suggestions about the Lakes. We hope to return again sometime soon.

This is a home from home. A real Lake District experience in a cosy cottage. Our host was on hand for any advice or guidance as he is part of the Ambleside Community with excellent local knowledge. Just a 3 min walk into the town but a quiet location with off street parking which is a bonus in Ambleside. Kitchen is well equipped with microwave and dishwasher. Log burner added to cosiness at night. No washing machine but laundrette in town. Good shower with wet room set up. Underfloor heating in kitchen and bathroom Numerous pubs and restaurants within walking distance. The Golden Rule at the end of the road is great local drinking hole. Good coffee shops in the town. Great access for walks up to the fells without driving. Can walk to Grassmere via low level flat walk or over Loughrigg Fell for a great day out. Overall an excellent experience of Lakeland life!

How Head is an idyllic little place, perfect for couples as a base to explore the Lakes. A stones throw from the lively Ambleside town centre yet peacefully hidden up the hill. The cottage is perfect, modern kitchen and bathroom with a perfect log burning fire for chilly evenings. I highly recommend a stay here! Robin is a friendly and attentive host who takes pride in his residences. He provided us with great recommendations for dining and adventure.

Thanks Gregory for the great review! So pleased you liked the wood burner. You'll have to come back in the winter to relish the underfloor heating in the wet room! If you have time, a copy and paste into TripAdvisor would be awesome - thank you again and all the best!

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.
