About the neighbourhood
A stay in this historic conservation area of Ambleside gives you the opportunity to enjoy the quieter side of Lakeland village life, without straying too far from Ambleside's excellent shops, restaurants, pubs and historic attractions. Slightly elevated from the village centre, the views are enhanced taking in Ambleside's dramatic backdrop of mountains and fells. Stroll outside of the village centre, and you'll find Lake Windermere cruises departing regularly from Ambleside Pier at Waterhead. The 'steamers' ferry passengers the full length of the lake, with stops at bustling Bowness and serene Lakeside - a wonderful way to explore car-free! Ambleside has long been a popular base for walking in the Lake District, with so many famous routes close by to explore. Pick up some tips in one of ...
