The historic Lakeland village sit on the picturesque northern shores of lake Windermere, which commands beautiful views and, equally, the little streets don't disappoint either being scattered with traditional Lake District cottages and historic buildings.

From Cross Brow House, you can wander down to Waterhead Pier, just outside the village centre, where you can board a boat with Windermere Lake Cruises to explore Bowness or Lakeside. It's a great way to enjoy the Lake District vistas without having to negotiate any traffic.
And Ambleside also has some great attraction, such as the Armitt museum, where you can look back into the industrial history of the area; and for literary lovers you are close by to visit one of William Wordsworth's family homes at Rydal Mount & Gardens.
