Known for its convenient location for accessing the very best of the Lake District, Ambleside is a thriving Victorian town in Cumbria, offering a plethora of great amenities from local pubs and cafes to independent shops and sports stores. Lake Windermere is just 2 miles away, making Ambleside cottages the ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts. Canoe or kayak across the still waters, catch a boat from Waterhead Pier or try wild swimming. This area is famed for its excellent rock climbs with its close proximity to Langdale Valley.
Walks nearby include the hike up to Loughrigg Fell and Wansfell Pike, or to the extraordinary Stock Ghyll Force waterfall. Take a gentle walk through the Rydal and Grasmere valleys. Ambleside itself has much to offer, such as the annual showcase for traditional Langdale sports including wrestling, fell running and hound trails: Ambleside Sports. Learn about the history of this pretty town in the Armitt Museum, enjoy a family trip to one of the cinemas, or dine out at a quality restaurant - it's all possible from one of our Lake District holiday cottages.
