Mini guide to Ambleside


Ambleside is located in Cumbria, in the North of England. Being situated at the hub of the local road system, it is an excellent base from which you can explore the famous Lake District. The town itself offers a quaint atmosphere of narrow streets, specialist shops and traditional tea gardens.

Lake Windermere is the largest lake in the Lake District and Ambleside sits on its Northern shore. The lake is a centre for water sports such as power boating and water skiing, however if you favour the more leisurely life there are rowing boats for hire and a steam boat ferry travelling the 10.5 mile length of the lake.

The area is the centre of English rock climbing and the country's most popular upland walking area, suitable both for a leisurely stroll to take in the spectacular views or a more demanding hike over the fells. For the more literary there is the Wordsworth museum at Dove Cottage and you can always take in the World of Beatrix Potter in nearby Bowness.

All the lakes have their own charm and you may want to explore Coniston, Thirlmere and Ullswater to discover their individual beauty and spectacular settings. At Grizedale Forest you will find a fascinating sculpture trail, while Brantwood, John Ruskin's home above Coniston Water, offers an insight into this influential writer's life.

The towns are equally as evocative - from historic Kendal, famous for its mint cake and castle, to Bowness-on-Windermere, and the area boasts many fine eateries ranging from side street cafes to gourmet restaurants. There is also accommodation to suit every budget.

The town is easily reached by road, being 20 miles from the M6 motorway, and is served by several bus services, including National Express. Rail travel is to Windermere, four miles away with easy bus and taxi access. There is also a direct Manchester Airport/Windermere rail link.
