Great position
Booked from New Zealand and found easily enough when we got to Ambleside. The cottage has everything we could have wished for including position in town (easy to wander around), proximity to pubs for drinks and food, and general facilities inside. There were 4 of us (adults) and we found no problems with living here. We covered large areas of the Lake District by car and it was nice to get back to the cottage each evening as it is warm and cosy and comfortable. We basically used Tesco's for our meals when we didn't eat out - their meals are very good and convenient. Barney's Cottage is excellent - our only hassle was the washing machine - like so many in the UK it is complicated to use - we never really got the hang of it and the handbook didn't really help - we've recommended that a short written two or three step instruction be written for us ignorant people. Otherwise the place is a joy to reside in and owners should be very pleased with their presentation

Great facilities and a great location
Ideal spot for a family of 4 (if adults) or 5 if a mix of adults and younger children. Sky TV was excellent (with full package) and the log-burner was superb. Lovery first floor bathroom and double bedroom and the loft bedroom was spacious and comfortable. Only draw back was the kitchen table occupied a lot of the kitchen and lounge space - but not a major problem. All in all, a great place to stay, with good parking facilities!

Fantastic cosy little cottage in a wonderful location
Barneys cottage is a real gem. Beautifully renovated with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The location is great. There is a bit of road noise in the lounge area from the main road through ambleside (but not noticeable in the bedrooms) but this is a very minor point - the trade off is that you're right in the heart of lovely ambleside with it's pubs, restaurants and great walking literally on your doorstep... and there's even a parking space. We enjoyed our stay stay so much we're going back next year!
