A guide to holidays in Ambleside

Tucked away on the northern edge of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a delightful lakeside town and an ideal base for exploring both land and water. There’s much to discover from our Ambleside cottages, from thrilling water sports to spectacular scenery.

Surrounded by Cumbrian countryside, there are many wonderful walks to be had around Ambleside, which has hills and woodlands in abundance, perfect for hiking. Take a leisurely stroll just outside of the town to Stock Ghyll Force and you will be rewarded with views of a 70ft-tall waterfall, the power of which has been harnessed to drive a series of watermills. Also within walking distance lie the remains of an ancient fort, managed by the National Trust. Believed to have been built during the rule of Hadrian, these fascinating ruins are well worth a visit.

Another place of interest just a short walk away from Ambleside is Stagshaw Garden, an informal woodland garden which comes to life in the spring and summer, as well as Skelghyll Woods, home to the tallest trees in Cumbria. Make sure you also pay a visit to Bridge House, a tiny house built upon a bridge – you’ll wonder how it managed to house eight residents while it was inhabited.

Ambleside’s proximity to Lake Windermere has to be one of its biggest pulls and there are many wonderful spots where you can take a picnic and simply sit back and enjoy the views. After a short walk from the pier at Waterhead you will find Jenkins Field, which is easily accessible, and you can even enjoy a paddle here on a warm day. There’s also plenty of things to do you can enjoy on the lake itself from Ambleside, from swimming to sailing, and at the local water sports centre you can learn to kayak, fish and wakeboard. Within the town of Ambleside itself, you’ll find the streets are characterised by traditional stone and grey slate buildings. The town centre has all the amenities you could need on a self-catering holiday including a wide choice of shops to browse, as well as pubs and cafés where you can enjoy a bite to eat. The Old Stamp House is perhaps one of the town’s more unique places to eat, in that the building was the former workplace of William Wordsworth, one of the region’s best-loved writers.

Nearby you will find plenty of other towns around the edges of Lake Windermere, including Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere, while the pretty village of Hawkshead and the smaller lake of Grasmere, as well as its synonymous village, are also just a short distance away.

If you’ve been inspired to base your next holiday in Ambleside, take a look at our full collection of Ambleside holiday cottages. You’ll find a variety of self-catering accommodation amongst our places to stay – everything from stylish apartments to cosy lodges. We even have a number of dog-friendly holiday lets to rent, meaning your dog is also welcome to join you on long walks exploring Ambleside and beyond.
