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.

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.
