Ambleside is an popular Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake
Windermere. Attractive with its historic Lakeland stone buildings and
winding streets, the village has grown to become one of the most
sophisticated destinations in the Lake District.
In the village centre, you'll find a wide range of shops from boutiques
to expert outdoor clothing stores. Classy cafes are around every
corner, so there are plenty of opportunities to relax and soak up the
atmosphere. Some of the Lake District's finest restaurants are found in
and around Ambelside, or the famed Drunken Duck Inn just a short drive
away at Outgate.
Of course, it's a must to enjoy Lake Windermere during your stay. Just
a short stroll outside Ambleside village centre is Waterhead Pier,
where Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to ferry passengers the
full length of the lake. The traditional 'steamers' are a wonderfully
romantic way to explore, with no need to use a car, and stopping off at
Bowness or Lakeside.
For a taste of the wilder Lake District, take a short drive to Coniston
or the breathtaking Langdale Valley - both within easy reach. Or, head
up onto Kirkstone Pass - a high and dramatic road that winds its way
between Windermere and Ullswater.Get the full listing »
