Ambleside Luxury Cottages

Known locally as ‘the jewel in Lakeland’s crown’, Ambleside occupies a majestical position at the head of England’s largest lake, Windermere, and cocooned by the very best mountain scenery in Britain. Within Ambleside, you’ll find a cosmopolitan high street, combining the traditional charm of the Lakeland buildings with quality, contemporary shops and galleries making for a sophisticated shopping experience. Delicatessens and local butcher is ideal for stocking up your holiday kitchen and there are also several acclaimed Lake District dining and entertainment options, including The Glass House, Lucy’s of Ambleside, Zeffirellis Cinema, Pizzeria & Jazz Bar and vegetarian restaurant, Fellinis. A real gem whilst staying in Ambleside would be a trip to Michelin star restaurant The Forest Side, at Grasmere, for a tantalising dining experience in this recently renovated Victorian manor house. Loughrigg Fell stands proudly between Ambleside and Grasmere and is one of the most popular Lake District walks.

A short stroll from Ambleside to Waterhead Pier brings you to the inviting waters of lake Windermere where you can embark on a tranquil cruise to enjoy the boutique shopping and bars of Bowness or Lakeside with Windermere Lake Cruises. The evening excursions, which often include live music and food, are a delightfully romantic and special way to spend time with loved ones.

A 15 minute drive south of Ambleside brings your to the picturesque village of Hawkshead. The cobbled streets of this car-free village are filled with Lake District charm. And from here you can enjoy traditional Lake District pubs, superb local businesses such as Hawkshead Relish and Hawkshead clothing, as well as easy strolls into the chocolate-box countryside in and around where Beatrix Potter lived.

Less than 10 minutes north, you can visit Ryal Mount & Gardens, William Wordworth’s former family home. Continue on the A591 to Grasmere, where his most renowned work was created.
