Ambleside is known locally as the 'gem in Lakeland's crown'. It's a small but lively community where historic buildings such as the much photographed 'Bridge House', and traditional Lake District cottages blend with sophisticated shops, tasty cafes and acclaimed Lake District restaurants, such as 'The Glass House'. Ambleside is also known as the hub for walking and outdoor activities in the Lake District. You'll find hikers' cafes, expert outdoor shops and passionate people just waiting to give you advice on the best walking in the Lake District.
Stroll to Waterhead Pier, and you can catch a Windermere Lake Cruise to Bowness or Lakeside, two other popular Lake District self-catering destinations. A great way to explore without even using your car.
If you fancy exploring the wider Lake District, you're well placed. The A591 connects Ambleside to Windermere village to the south, and heads north to tranquil Rydal Water and historic Grasmere. It's quick and easy to branch off to the breathtaking Langdale Valley, and also Coniston Water. Hawkshead village is also close by, and well worth a visit during your stay.
