The living areas are spacious and stylish, extending to a relaxed conservatory and decked patio - perfect for pre-dinner drinks!

Location Ambleside is a popular Lake District village, taking a very scenic location on the northern shores of Lake Windermere and surrounded by a dramatic backdrop of Lakeland Fells. In the village centre, you'll find sophisticated shopping and fabulous eating - an array of cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs await. Ambleside also has two cinema venues - perfect family entertainment for relaxed or rainy days. Why not take a cruise on Lake Windermere during your stay? Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly from Waterhead Pier, which is just a stroll out of the village - a great way to explore Bowness and Lakeside without taking your car. Touring by car is scenic in every direction from your self-catering accommodation in Ambleside. Follow the A591 north past tranquil Rydal Water to historic Grasmere, and visit the former home of William Wordsworth at Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum. The A591 also leads easily south to Troutbeck Bridge, Windermere and on to Bowness.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
