This can be weekend away or a mid-week break to recharge your batteries. The accommodation on offer in Ambleside varies greatly. From prime central village locations to more rural retreats nestled near the lake shores. You may choose a quaint traditional cottage, perfect for couples, situated within immediate reach of the superb array of shops. Or a converted barn tucked away on the outskirts of Ambleside. Either way you will not be disappointed with this beautiful village.

Ambleside is a fantastic choice when it comes to self-catering holidays, especially for short breaks. There is easy access if travelling from the North or South. It is an ideal place to escape too whether you arrive by car or by public transport.

Windermere Train Station is located approx 4 miles from Ambleside. With buses running from and to, this is a popular mode of transport for many guests who return to The Lakes year after year.

If you are a partial to an adventure or two, the Lakeland Fells are accessible from this quaint little village.

If you’re looking for a more laid back short break then gentle strolls through the many beautiful parks. Rothay Park alongside the flowing River Rothay with views of Loughrigg. Or Borans Park on the edge of the shore of Lake Windermere, make the perfect afternoon lazy stroll. Make sure you take your camera as the scenery is out of this world. You will want to capture as much of it as possible to make all your friends envious.

Choosing a place to eat is a hard decision, with so many high quality restaurants and cafes. You will have to return to the area again to try them all! Zefferellies is a firm favourite for both locals and holidaymakers. They offer a wide range of vegetarian dishes in ambient surroundings. Other favourites include Stiles Coffee House (pet friendly), Sheilas Cottage and The Old Stamp House all central to the village. Or try the Log house which has a great reputation for its food.
